VW's Seat returns to profit; to launch third SUV in 2018


In terms of styling, the new large SEAT SUV is likely to borrow certain design cues from the SEAT 20V20 concept (seen in the images above) shown a couple of years ago, much like the Ateca did. Awards in January, the Spanish manufacturer is now gearing up to launch its second model, the Arona, later this year.

And soon enough - next year - the company in Martorell will expand its newly formed SUV range with a third additional entry in the form of a flagship model, a midsize crossover packing five- and seven-seat versions.

The SUV announced today will be built at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg, enabling improved synergies within the Group by maximising the MQB A2 platform which is already installed there.

Seat will have the Seat mid-size SUV manufactured in Germany.

The new model will be available in both five and seven-seat forms, and although a name has yet to be confirmed, Seat has a history of choosing the names of Spanish towns for its cars. The new SUV will be built in Wolfsburg, Germany, the home of SEAT's parent Volkswagen.

Seat has announced that it will launch a third SUV model, and these are the first shady pictures.

"This vehicle will bring new customers to us". The company could offer the large SUV with 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol, 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol and 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engines in varying outputs. A six-speed manual gearbox will nearly certainly be standard, with a dual-clutch automatic offered as an option; this is likely to come with six or seven speeds depending on which engine it's paired with.
