The Award-Winning CUPRA Born

Member News

Well, if you want to drive an Electric car that gets you noticed you won’t find much better than the Cupra Born!!

The looks/stares the car had over the last few days have been constant, followed by smiles and people pointing and asking, “what is it”, then replying “it’s a Cupra!!”

I’m sure the Aurora Blue and Bronze accents clearly added to the attention. In fact, the number of neighbours that stopped to speak to me about the car was surprising, when I drove its sister car, the Volkswagen ID.3 I only got a few looks, but this will be down to the (sporty) styling of the Born and the more mainstream look of the ID.3…

The interior with the black headlining is sporty and stylish, with the bronze accents lifting to the overall interior ambience and style.

There is high-quality feel and design to the Sports Bucket seats, they are both comfy, supportive and I believe wouldn’t look out of place in a more expensive. Plus, on the V2 and V3 models these are also heated as standard.

The large 20” Hurricane’ machined Aerowheels increased the sporty look outside without making the ride to firm or hard, however the large wheels do impact the range, so choose wisely.

Unfortunately, the car we had didn’t have any of the options on, like the Tech Packs, Skyline – Panoramic Sunroof, Dynamic Pack (DCC) and so on, so I can’t make judgement on them. Would have loved to have tried out the e-Boost* functionality!! Just to feel that adrenaline burst speak about.!!

*The e-Boost package includes CUPRA steering wheel with satellite buttons, designed to put unbridled performance at your fingertips. Just as importantly, it comes with enhanced front brake discs – capable of reining in all that incredible power.

But even with just the standard equipment it was still full with an abundance of Technology. 12-inch Touchscreen, Navigation, Bluetooth, Apple car play and so on the list seems endless. The Head up Display, and Active Cruise Control just added to the overall enjoyment and safety of the drive. The Rear-View Camera system was clear and the lines a great aid. A nice touch is Multicolour ambient lighting, where you can choose your favourite colour and set the perfect mood is just lovely and one my daughter loved to change!! On the outside The Welcome light ensures a show-stealing entrance every time.

If I really wanted to be fussy, I do prefer four window switches rather than 2 you get, and one more switch that you use to switch between front and rear, which I kept catching, but that’s just me.!!

The car was fun to drive, had tons of technology, looks and feels sporty and stylish. Well worth you taking the time to have a look or add it to your wish list!

Therefor it’s no surprise that it is Award-winning
-The CUPRA Born has been named Best Small Electric Car of the Year 2022 by WhatCar?

If I was to order one, I’d go for the Cupra Born V3 58 kWh AFV 230 Auto e-Boost, with Tech (L)pack and the Skyline – Panoramic Sunroof!!
