Seat IBX Concept

Leaked online yesterday, Seat has revealed its new concept car, dubbed IBX. They say that it is an urban sports utility vehicle that was developed for an active lifestyle. Looking at the car, it resembles a little with the BMW X6 and combines the versatility of an SUV with the elegance of a coupe.

The car measures 4.25 meters in length, 1.80 meters in width and 1.62 meters in height and is powered by an advanced hybrid powertrain. The Spanish automaker said that in electric model, the IBX Concept is able to drive for up to 28 miles (45 km). Seat said that they are at the moment considering both a direct injection TSI and TDI engine for the combustion unit. Also in the works there is a 4WD system.

This relatively compact crossover model is a little bit smaller than the Volkswagen Tiguan and appears to be a follow up on the automaker’s 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show Tribu concept, a car that never got the green light for production. However, this time the Spanish automaker says that the IBX demonstrates “a possible expansion of the SEAT product portfolio.”
