GRIP tuning test 2021

The DTE Cupra Formentor in the Grip tuning test

In the GRIP single test for the Cupra Formentor, the new PowerControl X chip tuning box from DTE Systems was convincing - from performance increase to overall package.

Thus, the new performance enhancement dominated with a convincing overall package of engine warranty, app control and service. DTE Systems shone above all with the highest performance values." With the power tool PowerControl, tuner DTE Systems increases the performance of modern cars by up to 30 percent. We drove the results in a now 373-hp Cupra Formentor.“

The test!

GRIP magazine tested the market-leading tuning systems in the Cupra Formentor. The result: GRIP found the DTE Cupra Formentor to be good.

"For the maximum standard torque without tuning, 401.1 Nm (factory specification: 370 Nm) is displayed, after tuning it is 487.1 Nm. Unfortunately, the dyno doesn't spit out any values for acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h - the factory specifies 4.9 seconds, so it should happen faster with additional power. However, the test technology at least allows a comparison of the elasticity from 80 to 160 km/h: that takes 13.5 seconds in factory condition, tuned it is only 10.6 seconds. A clear difference."
