Episode One – The CUPRA Tavascan Design Story
Crafting a Vision Beyond Conformity: the CUPRA Tavascan Concept
“Creating a unique design with a powerful personality means honouring our vision, even if it doesn’t appeal to everyone. Staying true to our essence is paramount.”
The CUPRA Tavascan's striking fusion of an SUV and coupe architecture was a conscious effort to break away from mundane design tropes. This union of aesthetics and engineering has culminated in the release of a new car design which exudes a powerful sensation of speed, from every angle.
Our Design Director, Jorge Díez, has prioritised the development of a strong characterful design that defies conventional norms. It does not appease to the masses but captivates the hearts of a few.
The exterior's Dark Mask, reminiscent of a superhero's enigmatic gaze creates a dynamic and sporty character, setting the tone for an exhilarating driving experience.
Creating a Distinctive Identity through Automotive Design
“For us, the eyes of a human determine our view, they determine a lot of things like character and identity”
This perspective is embedded in the design ethos of the CUPRA Tavascan and its striking new headlamp which integrates our three-triangle eye signature.
Highlighting a momentous evolution in CUPRA's design language is CUPRA Tavascan’s triangularised logo on the front exterior, a unique hallmark of our brand – an inimitable illuminating emblem.
It is also representative of the Tavascan’s powerful personality which is brought to life by the interior’s progressive central spine.
