Seat Ibiza Space news — Space Ibiza - 2009
This little sketch gives you a rough idea of what Seat’s
next big project will look like - it’s an estate version of the little Ibiza.
Led by Seat design chief and ex-Lamborghini man Luc Donckerwolke, the
Ibiza ST is a rakish shape that’ll probably put looks ahead of capacity - a bit
like a ‘small premium estate’, as the man at Seat was keen to tell us.
It sits on a slightly stretched Ibiza platform (itself
shared with the latest Polo) and will get some new engines not offered in the
existing line-up. The idea is to take the fight to the French - namely Renault
Clio and Peugeot 207, which, let’s face it, isn’t going to be much of a scrap.
Other details at this stage are, er, sketchy. A concept will
probably be ready for the Paris show later this year and that’d mean an on-sale
date of early 2011.
