SEAT to launch seven-seater SUV in 2018
SEAT has confirmed plans to launch a large SUV from 2018.
The unnamed model will sit above the newly launched Ateca and be available in both five and seven-seater versions. It will use the MQB platform that also underpins the new Skoda Kodiaq seven-seater SUV.
No engine details have been announced but are expected to bring a range of turbo petrol and diesel units along with front-wheel and four-wheel drive powertrains and a choice of manual or DSG automatic gearboxes.
SEAT president Luca de Meo said: “This car will bring new customers to us, will boost brand image and will have a very big effect on our ability to generate margins. It will be designed in Barcelona and made in Germany. Producing the new SUV in Wolfsburg, in the heart of the Group, will reinforce the ties between SEAT and Volkswagen.”
