Seat planning crossover, might be launched in 2016 image

The Spanish based automaker Seat is planning to introduce a crossover over the following years, which is believed to make its way onto the market in 2016.

The announcement hasn’t been made by the car manufacturer yet but according to a report, published by the guys at Auto Express, the model in questioned is believed to be named the Tribu. Our source is saying that the styling of the upcoming Seat Tribu will be heavily influenced by the Leon. Auto Express was given a preview of the model but they were not allowed to take pictures. The crossover will get a prominent character line, a sculpted hood, LED lights and others.

The new Seat Tribu will also come with squared off wheel arches and some plastic body cladding. We don’t have a clue on specifications of the model but this is believed to be based on the MQB platform and to hit the market in the same size of the Kia Sportage or the Nissan Qashqai. As far as the engine lineup goes, four-cylinder units from Seat’s current lineup will be used. The crossover has been given the green light and it could be launched in 2016. Additional details on it are limited for the moment.
