Approved by octopus

The CUPRA Born has already proven to be a great addition to the EV world, winning WhatCar’s Best Small Electric Car of the Year 2022. That should come as no surprise considering it’s built upon the hugely popular platform of the VW ID.3. Its aggressive, sporty looks are what make the Born standout from the crowd, and its competitive pricing makes it a great choice for a small family.

Interior

The CUPRA’s sporty looks on the outside are matched inside, with sport bucket seats as standard. The driver’s view is focused, with key buttons being easy to reach. There’s also plenty of room in the back despite its sporty nature, adding to the CUPRA’s practicality.
