The Spanish based automaker Seat will develop a crossover, as this is the main priority of its new boss, Jurgen Stackmann.
With the Volkswagen Group already making several crossovers, Seat wants a piece of the pie too and its newly-appointed chairman, Jurgen Stackmann, has recently announced that its main priority will be the development of such a vehicle. The announcement has been made in a short talk with the guys at Auto Express when Stackman first talked about the crossover. The new Seat vehicle hasn’t been detailed but the magazine is reporting that this will ride on the MQB platform, the same one used on models such as the VW Golf 7, the new Skoda Octavia or the 2013 Audi A3 lineup.
The new Seat Crossover is expected to be the same size as the Volkswagen Tiguan and its looks should be inspired by the IBX Concept. Rumors are saying that the new Seat crossover should only be the path opener for a new model, which will hit the market in 2016. This is expected to be based on the VW Taigun, which was unveiled back in 2012, during the Sao Paulo Motor Show. Additional details on the future Seat crossovers are limited for the moment and will probably be announced close to their launch
