On the sidelines of the 2022 World…

En marge du Mondial 2022... - Nouvelle Cupra Born VZ

“And on the sidelines of the 2022 World Cup”…

Why this section? Because there are many new products this fall, and you certainly expect to see them all on our mini site “Auto World” in which you traditionally find new models from all manufacturers.

However, several manufacturers having chosen not to be present at this edition of the Paris Motor Show 2022, a certain number of new products will not be exhibited at Porte de Versailles in Paris, and in particular the one presented in this article. In order to give you an exhaustive vision and meet your expectations, we have nevertheless chosen to publish them in the mini-site Caradisiac dedicated to the Paris Motor Showbut in a special section “And on the sidelines of the Mondial de l’Auto”.

Cousin of the Volkswagen ID.3the Cupra Born directly attacks the Tesla Model 3 according to the brand’s communicators. When the American sedan only cost €43,800 with its much more powerful engine and excellent level of equipment, this statement might seem bold. But now that the entry-level Model 3 is trading from €53,490, there’s clearly a match. Especially since the “premium” division of Seat has just officially launched the VZ 230 “XL” version of the Born. Equipped with the most powerful powertrain in the range (230 horsepower) and large 77 kWh batteries, it ultimately claims a maximum range of 550 kilometers according to the WLTP standard. It thus beats the 491 kilometers announced on the Model 3, even if the latter benefits from slightly better performance (0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds against 7 seconds for the Cupra).

Despite all the emphasis on sporty driving with its “disconnectable ESP” (unlike traction control), this Cupra VZ 230 XL is trading from €46,500. Unlike the Tesla Model 3, it therefore benefits from the maximum ecological bonus of €6,000 provided that no option is added (above €47,000, it drops to €2,000). As a reminder, the Cupra Born VZ “L” equipped with 58 kWh batteries costs €44,600 and claims 421 kilometers of autonomy.

Also available with large 77 kWh batteries, the Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S Active starts at €48,150 with the less powerful 204 horsepower engine. Even if it will be necessary to carefully study the differences in equipment, the new Born VZ XL therefore seems well placed in terms of tariffs.

Caradisiac, partner of the Paris Motor Show

As in 2018, Caradisiac is once again a partner in 2022 of the Mondial de l’Auto which will take place in Paris from October 17 to 23. The Caradisiac editorial team will thus be relocated to its own stand for the duration of the show to analyze, dissect, photograph and film all the new models. And this will of course also be an opportunity for you to come, as you are used to, to meet our journalists. Which new or used car to buy? They will answer all your questions. Until then, we will give you on Caradisiac all the information that we could have obtained from the manufacturers on their new models.
