The limited edition CUPRA Formentor VZN: the ultimate performance

A new black-accented premium spec brings even more to CUPRA’s 310PS, 140mph flagship SUV coupe

Fans of performance cars around the UK are becoming increasingly familiar with the CUPRA Formentor: its popularity with those who know shows no sign of flagging, three years since the first car to carry a standalone CUPRA badge was unveiled.

Yet nobody has seen a CUPRA Formentor quite like this: the brand-new, limited-edition VZN.

Sitting at the very top of the Formentor range with the mighty 2.0 litre, 310PS TSI engine, the VZN will race from 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds, thanks to a seamless seven-speed DSG transmission and intelligent 4Drive all-wheel drive providing dependable traction.

And that power is supplied via CUPRA’s electronic differential lock, which adapts to your inputs and road conditions to maximise traction and acceleration in all conditions. Five driving modes are available to suit your mood. Performance is guaranteed.

But the VZN edition takes that performance and adds an eye-catching take on CUPRA’s design that makes the Formentor – and electric CUPRA Born – stand out on the road.

A new resolved black-accented spec includes black grill, cladding and mirrors feature for the first time, as well as new 19” sport matte-black alloys. Inside, the CUPRA-branded black Dinamica bucket seats are standard, as well as a panoramic roof and top view camera. And the familiar immersive 12” touchscreen now features a Beats Sound System, so the VZN sounds at its best inside and out. 

Watch the film above for an exclusive taste of CUPRA’s latest bold entry into the world of performance and design.

The mighty CUPRA Formentor VZN is now available for a limited period at an on-the-road price of £48,270 (recommended on the road price) – head to to find out more.
