The Seat SUV, which has not yet been named, will take on the likes of the Nissan Qashqai and the style will be based on the successful, sporty Leon FR. It has been hinted from the IBX Concept that the vehicle will offer a choice of either standard front-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive. Power is expected to come from an extended range of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines shared with the Seat Leon.
Company Director Jurgen Stackmann confirmed the vehicle is already two years into development at the company’s Martorell Technical Facility in Spain after the well-received IBX concept was finally approved by parent company Volkswagen.
Stackmann declared “This is great news. It takes Seat into new territory in one of the largest and fastest-growing segments in the world,” adding, “The SUV is an important pillar in the future corporate strategy and is a major step forward on the road to reaching sustainable profitability for the company.”
Although, the exact launch has not yet been revealed, it is suggested we could see a concept version of the New SUV as early as the Geneva Motor Show in 2015.
