CUPRA Australia Unveils Limited Edition Formentor VZx 'Rojo' Model
March 10, 2023
CUPRA Australia has announced the release of a limited edition of 30 Formentor VZx models in a new rojo (red) paint job, inspired by the demand of a highly motivated customer. The Formentor VZx 'Rojo' edition will be the first time the top grade Formentor VZx has been made available in red, with black leather upholstery and a panoramic sunroof. Orders for the limited edition are open as of Tuesday, with deliveries expected in May to June.
CUPRA Australia Director Ben Wilks expressed excitement about the response to the brand's entry into the Australian market, which has resulted in an increase of BEVs allocated to the market, and fresh supplies of Formentor and Leon VZe PHEVs. Wilks added that as other brands withdraw from the sporty hatchback market, CUPRA is able to offer three Leons - V, VZ, and VZx - for immediate delivery, as well as performance SUVs like the Ateca and Formentor.
The Formentor VZx 'Rojo' edition boasts a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine with 228kW/400Nm, 19" sport black and copper alloy wheels, and a range of safety and convenience features including hands-free power tailgate, quad exhaust, panoramic sunroof, Beats audio with 9 speakers and subwoofer, and full LED headlights and daytime running lights. The limited edition also includes a range of driver assistance features such as Lane Assist, Park Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The Formentor VZx 'Rojo' edition is priced at $66,490 RRP, or $71,490 driveaway. CUPRA Australia expects a high demand for the limited edition, with Wilks noting that he expected one particular customer to make an immediate deposit.
