Cupra Formentor, ABT brings it up to 370 horses

If the sportiness of Cupra Formentor is not enough for you, then ABT has the solution for you. The German tuner, specializing mainly in Audi and Volkswagen, got his hands on the sporty crossover making it even worse.

ABT, which recently had also developed the Ateca and Leon properly, therefore intervened on the engine and on the Formentor line.

The partnership between ABT and Cupra has strengthened this year. The ABT Cupra XE team will take part in the Extreme E championship reserved for electric sports with Mattia Ekström. The former DTM and WRX champion was also involved in the development of the base Formentor’s active suspension system.

Power injection

ABT’s most massive intervention is about potency. The ABT Power Performance Upgrade thus made it possible to go from 310 horsepower and 400 Nm of the starting 2.0 TSI to 370 horsepower and 450 Nm.

The changes to the engine were made possible thanks to the ABT Engine Control unit which adjusted the time from 0 to 100 km / h by lowering it to 4.6 seconds. The three tenths gained over the standard version thus place the Formentor on the same level as, for example, a Porsche Boxster GTS.

Of course, the increased power needs to be accompanied by a more aggressive tonal tone. For this reason, ABT will soon make available a specific exhaust system with glossy black tailpipes with a diameter of 102 mm.

New “shoes”

In addition to the engine, the tuning of the tuner also addressed the trim. The suspension has been lowered by 35 mm to ensure an even sportier visual impact. Also new are the 20 ”ABT Sport GT alloy wheels with the concave design of the black spokes that enhances the muscular shapes of the Spanish SUV. However, ABT also offers alternatives in glossy black or diamond-cut in 19 or 20 ”sizes.
