In Drift Mode, torque splitter technology directs all of the engine's whopping 480Nm of torque to the outermost rear wheel.

09 Jul 2021 | International News : Spain



Just when we thought the Cupra Formentor - already a pretty lairy car - couldn't get any crazier, the upcoming Cupra Formentor VZ5 has been confirmed to include an all new Drift Mode.

The electro-hydraulic, fully-variable torque splitter system that enables this incorporates two separate clutches. This means that it can distribute power from the Formentor's mighty 2.5-litre TSI five-cylinder engine between each rear wheel during cornering, providing remarkable agility on the road.

In Drift Mode, however, the Electronic Stability Control is completely disconnected. The torque splitter directs all of the engine's whopping 480Nm of torque to the outermost rear wheel, sliding the car around corners.

The new Drift Mode joins the pre-existing selection of driving modes - Comfort, Sport, CUPRA, Individual and Offroad. By adjusting variables such as throttle response, steering, and suspension, each mode gives the Formentor a distinct, unique character.
