Seat Crossover To Launch In 2018 : News

Seat is set to launch a seven-seat crossover before 2018.

Although the new car has yet to be formally confirmed, Seat boss Jürgen Stackmann told Autocar at the Paris motor show in 2014: "A seven-seat SUV would be interesting, but such a proposal has not yet been approved."

The seven-seater is expected to be one of three Seat crossovers to be launched in the next three years. A Nissan Qashqai rival is expected to be revealed in 2015, a Nissan Juke sized rival in 2016 and this seven-seat crossover before the end of 2018.

The new seven-seater would likely follow similar launches from VW and Skoda, and be based on the VW Group's MQB architecture. The rearmost row of seats are likely to be comfortable for occasional use only, and will likely fold in to the floor of the car when not in use.

The Skoda seven-seat crossover is expected to go on sale at the end of 2016, as a direct rival to the Hyundai Santa Fe. It's likely that the Seat equivalent would be similarly priced but have more dramatic styling.

As with its counterparts, the Seat crossover is expected to be available in front and four-wheel drive form. The engine line-up will likely mirror that of the Seat Leon range, with a 1.4-litre petrol turbo the entry-level option, and the 1.6-litre turbodiesel the likely best seller.
