The Highly Anticipated CUPRA Born Compact EV Could Officially Arrive In Singapore Very Soon
If you’ve been religiously on YouTube searching for car reviews to pass time, chances are that you’ve also been wondering why certain brands or models, given their appealing prospects, haven't gained a strong foothold in Singapore.
CUPRA, we reckon, is one such brand. Headquartered in Barcelona, it falls under the Volkswagen Group umbrella and offers sporty, sometimes quirkier alternatives to more mainstream cars in the VW Group stable. Our reviews of the CUPRA Leon, Ateca and Formentor suggest that despite their roots derived from a family responsible for no less than 10 brands, they are comfortable in their own skin, too.
It has gone a bit quiet since then in the local context, but fret not, because from 1 June 2023 onwards, Volkswagen Group Singapore will be the exclusive distributor and service centre for CUPRA, and authorised service centre for SEAT, replacing Vertex Euro Motors.
"We are proud to welcome CUPRA and SEAT owners to Volkswagen Group Singapore, where we now service the Volkswagen Group’s volume brands all under one roof. We are confident that they will enjoy our after-sales services and products, and we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with them. Our dedicated team will ensure a seamless transition, while providing an enhanced ownership experience and peace of mind," said Dr. Kurt Leitner, Managing Director, Volkswagen Group Singapore.

CUPRA owners who have outstanding complimentary servicing packages can complete their packages with Volkswagen Group Singapore on the same terms and conditions as stated at time of vehicle sale. SEAT owners who have outstanding complimentary servicing packages are advised to claim their packages with Vertex Euro Motors.
