Cupra Born 2023 Interior

First impressions in the Cupra Born are positive, with easy entry and egress via wide doors, while exceptional forward vision, aided by thin pillars and deep glass areas, do plenty to make the occupants feel at ease.

Space wise, the Born sits somewhere between a VW Polo and Golf, though it is closer to the latter overall.

The dashboard is clean if a bit cold and quite minimalist, and generally as you’d expect a modern VW to be, particularly if you’re used to a Golf.

Stylish and contemporary, with eye-catching details and textures, it is a nice thing to behold, but you also have to familiarise yourself with how to operate some of the basic items, such as the climate control and multimedia systems.

Other noteworthy items include an all-digital instrumentation, twist-action gear lever sited to the right of the dash, an attractive steering wheel, effective ventilation and plentiful storage ­– including the huge door bins.

And out back, it turns out that the Born isn’t quite as compact as it seems, with ample legroom as well as headroom for most people. Useful amenities include a folding centre armrest with cupholders and a ski-port, USB outlets and hungry door bins.

On the other hand, the multimedia system is difficult to fathom beyond the home screen, the slide controls for heating and cooling are fiddly, some of the plastics aren’t of a quality you’d expect from a VW Group product, and you won’t find a spare wheel anywhere – just a tyre repair kit.

Cupra Born 2023 Engine

The battery pack is actually rated at 82kWh with 77kWh being the net useable output, while the electric motor provides 170kW of power and 310Nm of boost.

Cupra Born 2023 Seats

The Cupra Born with the optional Interior Package ushers in a stylish pair of sports bucket seats up front, that hold and support you in all the right places, especially when driven hard around corners.

These have an electrical adjustment as well as heating and massaging functions when required. They feel as good as they look. We hope the standard front seat arrangement is as appealing.

And out back, the two-seater cushion and backrests are comfy, with the latter's headrests nicely soft and pillowy, and there is a folding armrest with two cupholders.

Behind that is a ski-port so extended items can be pushed through into the cabin. The backrest also has a split/fold function.

Without the Interior Package option, the Born's back seat turns into a three-seater arrangement.
