SEAT Ibiza Cupra Concept

SEAT HAS DEBUTED the concept version of its new hot Ibiza supermini at the Beijing motorshow.

SEAT say its new Renaultsport Clio and Fiesta ST rival is being shown as a “close-to-production” concept and is fitted with a 1.4 litre, turbocharged and supercharged, TSI petrol engine producing 178bhp and 184lb/ft torque.

Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a seven-speed, paddle-shift DSG gearbox and an XDS electronic differential.

The performance is backed up with aggressive looks; at the front there is a larger grille and air intakes, detailed bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and large foglights.

Elsewhere there are 17-inch alloys wheels and a larger rear bumper featuring a matte black diffuser and large, central exhaust.

Inside there is a new sports steering wheel, leather sports seats with Crono yellow highlights to match the exterior paint and the new SEAT Portable System; a five-inch removable screen which can be used for sat-nav, hands-free phone calls, voice controls and the onborad computer. The SEAT Portable System will eventually become an option across the whole Ibiza range.
