Cupra Formentor, Hey guys, this is the Cooper app for mentor Spanish. And we’ve done a full review of this car already on the channel. We’ve even done a head-to-head between this and the Cupra Leon estate to check whether SUVs, my favorite, a better than shooting brakes or whatever you want to call them. We’ve been living with a coup performance or now for around six months. So I know a lot about this car and this brand. So today, I want to show you everything I love and everything . I hate and help you decide whether you should buy a cool performance. So stick around, you might learn something if I promise you we’ll learn something or get your money back.

So strap in, subscribe. And if you have been watching those stuff, don’t ever stop. The first thing we want to talk about is the name of the mentor. Formentera is an island next to a beefer and also say at a beefer say at Cooper are very closely related. Also, Cooper is a specific type of wheat bread-making wheat on the island of Formentera, so it all connects somehow. The thing I love about it most, though, is the logo which I’ve already said in the past, looks a bit like superheroes pants. But it’s very clever to design that to look like the left and right-hand sides of the headlights. Very clever design. Cupra Formentor
The rest of it is stunning as well, Cupra Formentor
Everywhere I go in this car, people look at me, and they ask me what it is that it looks cool. And I agree it’s just super muscular. I love the creases all along with the carver muscular haunches at the rear. It looks a bit like a coupe more than a hatchback. But on the whole, Yeah, stunning design, particularly the wheels, which let t SW Venoms from back in the 90s. So looks, they’ve nailed it. Now, let’s look at practicality. One of the things I’ve discovered with the form mentor is that it’s surprisingly spacious.
So you can carry quite a lot of stuff in the back
It’s also extensive. So check this out, right this, this is the bane of my life. This is our camera bag that we tend to bring with us on shoots everywhere is over a meter wide. And look at that. The Cooper swallows it up with no problem whatsoever. When we’re carrying extra stuff, we sometimes put this bag across the back seats. And the good thing with the Forman tour is that the leather in this car is hard-wearing. So that’s been in and out of the back seats probably 200 times over the last six months. And it isn’t a scuff or a scratch on the leather in the car.
So build quality. Yeah, solid. Plus, check this out. If you want to drop the rear seats, just a case of pulling those two tabs, and they fall, no problem at all. While I’m on the subject of build quality, I should point out that in the six months we’ve had this car, nothing has gone wrong. There’s been no squeaks, no rattles. You know, sometimes you live with a car, and you start to hear weird noises now, and then he can’t work out where they’re coming from. Not in the case of the full mentor. It’s been bashed about all over the place over speed bumps and potholes, and everything has been excellent.
And it didn’t happen to this car, Cupra Formentor
It happened to the Cooper lay on a state we were driving, the engine start-stop button stopped working. And the only way that I could get the car to start was by pulling the button off and poking my finger in the hole. But to be fair, that didn’t happen to this form, mentor, and hopefully never will. While I’m on the subject of the steering wheel, I’ve got to shout out to Cupra for the lovely design, first of all, but also the fact that they’ve got physical buttons all over the steering wheel. This is a VW Group product, and VW is well known for using capacitive buttons all over their steering wheels, which can be accidentally triggered when you’re going around corners or braking. Cupra Formentor.
But with physical buttons, that doesn’t happen in this car works a treat. However, the screen, the interface are still a complete nightmare. Again, it’s a VW Group product, and they are littered with issues, say I have tried to make it their own. But it’s still full of problems first and foremost knob gang all day. The volume adjustment is made via these capacitive buttons, and it’s a bit of a faff adjusting. The heating is even more of a problem, especially at night or when you’re driving in the dark, because none of this is illuminated. You can’t see. Also, it has this kind of mystery meat navigation system.
Thank for watching
