About CUPRA

Life is meant to be grasped with both hands. No compromise, no apologies, no shying away.

Welcome to a new way of driving

Welcome%20light%20of%20the%20CUPRA%20Formentor,%20ready%20to%20our%20CUPRA%20Masters

Drive a CUPRA and you’ll know what it means to live. Value scintillating performance, uniquely desirable styling and unabashed expression? CUPRA is the embodiment of them all.

 

Born out of the high-performance motorsport subsidiary of Spanish automobile manufacturer SEAT, CUPRA wears its motorsport pedigree with pride. Powerful petrol engines and awe-inspiring ride and handling make every drive in a CUPRA one to be savoured.   
 

Of course, CUPRA has the style to accompany the substance. Each CUPRA model has been designed to capture the essence of motoring performance, with styling that dares to be different and invites the unexpected. 

 

CUPRA’s aim is to ‘bring Barcelona to Australia’. In fact, Australia will be the first country in the world where CUPRA will operate exclusively as a performance brand.  


Propelled by innovation, CUPRA also brings electrification to Australia in the form of exciting plug-in hybrid (PHEV) engines and with plans to introduce an all-electric model soon. CUPRA’s goal of being a fully electric brand by 2030 is proof that it’s looking to the future and openly welcomes change. 


Take the challenge and embrace different. CUPRA is for people with nothing to prove, but everything to gain.

FAQs


CUPRA is part of the Volkswagen Group and is best-known as the high-performance arm of trusted Spanish automobile manufacturer SEAT.

The name ‘CUPRA’ owes its origins to SEAT’s successful involvement in motorsport and stands for ‘Cup Racing’. It has since become synonymous with electrifying performance, dynamic driving qualities and eye-catching design.  

CUPRA will soon bring its unique range of exhilarating performance vehicles to Australia, with the release of the CUPRA Formentor crossover SUV, the CUPRA Ateca SUV and the CUPRA Leon hatchback.

Owning a CUPRA doesn’t just mean limitless driver enjoyment and the proud satisfaction of turning heads wherever you go. It means access to a range of customer benefits designed to enhance the CUPRA experience over time.     

Check out some of the unique benefits of owning a CUPRA:

 

CUPRA Servicing

Every CUPRA vehicle is covered by a factory-backed five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty. Plus, enjoy peace of mind knowing that your CUPRA can be serviced at a range of selected outlets within the Volkswagen Group network.

 

CUPRA Masters

Your CUPRA Master is your go-to CUPRA connection and will guide you through your journey of owning a CUPRA. Each CUPRA Master is well versed in the values of the CUPRA brand and has been carefully selected to provide you professional service whenever you need it.

As well as introducing you to local community experiences and events, where you can meet fellow CUPRA owners, your CUPRA Master will introduce you to a CUPRA Service Advisor who is on hand to help you with any technical support if it’s required.

 

Exclusive services

When you own a CUPRA, you’re entitled to a range of exclusive services upon request. These include access to a CUPRA courtesy car if your vehicle is at the dealership for repairs, as well as priority appointments, reserved parking space and maintenance services under two hours.

CUPRA will also contact you for a complimentary technical follow-up one month after vehicle purchase.


Recommended retail prices for the CUPRA range are still to be confirmed, but you can expect to pay $40,000–$60,000. 


CUPRA doesn’t just offer an exciting new way to drive, it also offers an exciting new way to purchase your next drive.

CUPRA doesn’t do dealerships in the traditional sense. Instead, when you buy a CUPRA, you take every step of your purchase journey online. That means you retain ultimate control over how you buy and when you buy.

Of course, buying a vehicle is no small decision and there are many CUPRA customers who will want to discuss their purchase with a CUPRA representative and take up the opportunity of a test drive.

That’s why CUPRA operates a network of CUPRA City Garages, boutique spaces where customers can find out more about the CUPRA experience. These garages, as well as pop-up sales points and other retailer outlets, are staffed by CUPRA Masters that act as concierges to customers and who can walk them through the CUPRA model range and the purchase process.

Anyone interested in seeing a CUPRA in the flesh or test-driving one can arrange to do so with the help of their CUPRA Master.

When the time comes to make a purchase, customers are guided through an online sales process. Once an order is placed, the selected vehicle isn’t sourced from stock, but is shipped and delivered according to customer specifications and requirements.

This is done at a fixed price, which means there is no need to haggle with sales staff and no confusing variations in recommended retail price according to region or territory. Conducting the purchase online also helps to streamline the vehicle financing process, with customers able to select the financing option that best suits them.

The entire process is efficient, satisfying and refreshingly contemporary, much like CUPRA itself.

 


A visit to a CUPRA Garage is the perfect way to find out about CUPRA and the attributes that set it apart – passion, performance and sophistication. Here customers can immerse themselves in an environment that is welcoming, exclusive and uniquely interactive, and discover first-hand what it feels like to own a CUPRA.

Each CUPRA Garage captures the essence of the CUPRA brand. The latest models will be on display in the Garage Zone and customers can interact with and customise them with the VR CUPRA experience.

CUPRA’s motorsport pedigree is revealed in the Racing zone, which displays CUPRA’s racing cars and motorsport gear. A Lifestyle zone contains exclusive CUPRA collections and collaborations, with refreshments available at the CUPRA bar.

Guiding customers through the CUPRA Garage are CUPRA Masters, whose role is to assist visitors with all aspects of their CUPRA buying journey.

When you purchase a CUPRA in Australia, it won’t be from a traditional dealership.

Instead, you’ll purchase a CUPRA online with the backing of a network of CUPRA City Garages and the support of a CUPRA Master, who will act as a customer concierge.

Your CUPRA Master will assess your lifestyle needs and guide you through your vehicle selection process. They will assist with everything from helping familiarise you with each model and arranging a test drive through to managing the sales process and vehicle delivery. Once you’ve purchased your CUPRA, your CUPRA Master will then cater to all of your after-sales needs.

Each CUPRA Master has been carefully selected to provide the utmost service and professionalism.   


CUPRA wants to provide its customers with knowledgeable and ultra-helpful support when they purchase and own a CUPRA. So it’s no surprise CUPRA is always on the look-out for passionate and interesting people to become CUPRA Masters.

Not only do the right candidates need to live and breathe the CUPRA brand, they need to have that certain spark that makes them a true CUPRA advocate.

CUPRA is currently recruiting to fill CUPRA Master positions. If you’re interested, simply go to the CUPRA Master recruitment page to fill out a registration form. If you’re selected, you’ll need to undergo a video interview and undertake an  assessment. Pass those and you’ll have a final interview before you can join the CUPRA team!


CUPRA Servicing has you covered so you can get straight back on the road.

Every CUPRA is covered by a factory-backed five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty, with servicing available through selected Volkswagen Group service centres.

A customisable selection of CUPRA Service Packs are also available exclusively to CUPRA customers. These optional packs combine maintenance services, a warranty extension and vehicle insurance to provide significant cost savings.

For a short time only, you’ll receive a complimentary 3-year CUPRA Service Pack with every new CUPRA vehicle purchase.
