Would make sense looks very much like the rear end of the Porsche Cayenne. However if you look at the images of the leon in the other mk4 thread the back end looks identical to the one in the image.

Exciting times....

Ah yeah that makes more sense. So this means there’s a suv between the ateca and the tarraco? Wow how many different types of suv do they want?

This model was advised as the first stand-alone Cupra model as opposed to being based on previous SEAT models.

Its supposed sit between the Ateca and Tarraco.
It's essentially an Ateca coupe.

It was also suggested that a SEAT version could follow afterwards.

SUVs are the in thing these days, people seem to want them.It was only a matter of time before the hot ones were going to be the in thing.

Had another look, those seats look so cool, look like they're out of a Lambo.

Also like the copper detailing on the exhaust trims, but I suspect they'll be fake tips similar to the Golf R Estate before the facelift.

So it’s a hybrid that has less power than the ateca with only 245ps. I assume they are relying on the electric motors to get the initial acceleration so it has the 0-60 time of the 300 ateca but with a smaller petrol engine?

Worth mentioning that although the paper numbers say the GTi is quicker than the GTE, the GTE is closer to the R in 0-60. So lot to be said about electric.

Not that I’d want one.
