Although it seems that this SUV C-segment with the name of aragonese village will not be the only one in the range. Everything points to that in 2017 will arrive a little brother of the Ateca, a B-SUV willing to continue with the saga.
as Well as confirming the very Luca de Meo, CEO of SEAT, in an event of the brand. The management stated that the three pillars for the future are the best-selling SEAT Leon, the small SEAT Ibiza, and this range SUV that is in its first year of life. With the boom in the segment of crossovers, the brand needed to have presence in this sector, that will surely help you to boost sales in the coming years.
Of the new compact SUV still there are no details nor know much of anything. It is expected to be based on the next generation of the SEAT Ibiza, in the same way that the Ateca takes the base of the Lion. There is also no official confirmation, but it is said that the new B-SUV will only be available front wheel drive. It is not something far-fetched bearing in mind that many buyers do not be used out of the asphalt.

In the event, Luca de Meo praised the SUV will arrive at dealers in June, and said that 7.2 million people have shown interest in this model in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
