Seat hints at new hot hatch

2008-03-05 09:27
VW's Spanish subsidiary Seat is using its Geneva show stand to show off the striking successor to the Ibiza compact hatch. It's hot!

It's name SportCoupe Bocanegra may be unpronounceable, but who cares when it looks this aggressive and imposing.

The prototype is said to mark the start of Seat's next design cycle that includes the launches of the next-generation Ibiza and a new family sedan in 2009.

However, for now, the Bocanegra concept car under the direction of Luc Donckerwolke (Lamborghini's former design ace) is very modern and continues the design trend set by the Tribu concept shown at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show.

Key features on the car - whose name literally means "black mouth" - include a semi-transparent front end, big panoramic sunroof, and more bulging curves than a body builder.

The concept is powered by a 1.4-litre TSI twin-charger petrol engine linked to VWAG's seven-speed DSG transmission.
