ABT Sportsline specializes in tuning VW Group vehicles and has just added the Cupra Formentor to its portfolio.
Thanks to a new engine control unit, the German tuner has increased the turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder’s output by 60 PS (59 HP / 44 kW) and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) of torque, for a total of 370 PS (365 HP / 272 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft). With this upgrade, the 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint has, according to ABT, dropped from 4.9 to 4.6 seconds, while top speed is still limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
An ABT exhaust system, which enhances the soundtrack and features 102 mm (4 in) tailpipes, is also available for the Formentor. Another option is a spring kit for the active suspension that lowers the ground clearance by up to 35 mm (1.4 in), while still leaving room under the arches for the new wheels.
The Formentor pictured here sits on the tuner’s 20-inch Sport GR alloys, with a diamond-machined surface. The wheels are optionally available in matte black too, and if the pattern does not suit your taste, ABT also offers its 20-inch FR and 19-inch DR and ER-C rims.
For the time being, no other parts for the Cupra Formentor can be found on the tuner’s catalogue, but we reckon they could also launch a few exterior and interior upgrades in the future.
