The Auto Trader expert verdict:
An all-electric hot hatch, the Cupra Born puts a stylish twist on the VW ID.3 foundations it also shares with the Skoda Enyaq IV. In keeping with Cupra’s sporty image, the Born is sharper to drive than both and, while the shape is familiar, the trademark bronze embellishments on the outside and sustainably sourced fabrics inside mean it feels as cool as it is worthy. Of the various battery and power options the fastest e-Boost version offers a convincing combination of performance with the practicality of over 300 miles of range, though there are more affordable options if you don’t need to go so far – or fast - between charges.
Reasons to buy:
- Cooler than the ID.3
- Sharp to drive
- Enough range for most drivers
