Much is carries talking in recent months about the powerful offensive product seat entering the segment of the SUVs with the Ateca and future SUV’s more contained dimensions that will receive the name of Arona, as well as the new generation of the Seat Ibiza, the most important model for the brand in the last three decades. Precisely the Arona will take the base of the Ibiza for its development, showing an aspect more adventurous.
The Spanish brand markets since this summer the Ateca Seat, just update the Seat Leon makes just a few weeks and its targets for 2017 are, in this order, to launch the new Seat Ibiza fifth generation and, at the end of the year, start the commercialization of the new Seat Arona, which we have very little information. Already it said Luca de Meo, President of Seat, in the Salon of Paris, “2017 goes to be a year very special for Seat“.
If of the Seat Arona have few data, does not mean that of the Ibiza have many more. Martorell brand is conducting development with much silence and without that moment the B-segment model to take notice. According to our British colleagues of coach, the Seat Ibiza will be shown officially in the Hall of Geneva 2017, in mid March, and will arrive in dealerships in the summer.
We can expect pretty profound changes in this generation gap. Seat not too accustomed to introduce important changes in middle of cycle of life updates, but in the generational relay. We recall that the fourth generation has been with us many years, since 2008 specifically.
In this way, cosmetic changes on the outside will be very notable, and can guess that their body will adopt some similar with his older brother, the Seat Leon. Almost certain is that its outside dimensions will increase slightly, with what will earn a few centimetres inside and probably in the boot capacity.
New technologies will appear on the Ibiza in terms of Infotainment with a new screen in the central area of the dashboard, more choices of equipment and, of course, new aid to driving at the height of their rivals. It will also adopt the new range of engines of the Volkswagen Group, with lower cubic capacity and lower consumption and emissions. We will wait for mark to speak and, if it does not, until the month of March and the opening of doors of the Geneva Motor Show.
