SEAT already has given a very necessary step with the launch of the SEAT Ateca, your first SUV. With this model it is expected that the brand achieved significant growth, rivaling with models like the Nissan Qashqai, the Kia Sportage or the Mazda CX-5. Now is brewing a new SUV B-segment for 2017, but according to sources Automarket the brand could be working on a new SEAT Marbella, a SUV model of segment A.
THE SEAT Marbella recover a mythical name in the brand, but climbing onto the rail of the SUV would be away in some way from their origins. It would be a model based on the platform of the SEAT Mii, and siblings in addition to combustion engines, would have a variant electric range with 200 km of autonomy. Apparently the new SEAT Marbella to its origins would be with the slogan “keep it simple” (keep it simple), which gives us to understand that it will be a small SUV urban economic and more simple than other models of the brand.
Could be based on the Volkswagen e-Up!
it Is expected that the petrol engines tricilíndricos the employees by the SEAT Mii, Skoda Citigo and Volkswagen Up!, while presumably the mechanical power for the SEAT Marbella, would be the Volkswagen e-Up! the electric version of the utility. Currently, this urban electric has 82 horses of power and 160 km of autonomy, which could be improved in the face to the launch of the Marbella due to the advances in batteries.
One of the peculiarities of the SEAT Marbella electric is that, apparently, the brand marketed by using a formula of renting. You must pay an initial fee and then a monthly fee, which would cover also the costs of maintenance and insurance. As the idea of a SEAT is to go progressively improved the Marbella, mainly with batteries of greater capacity and autonomy, at the end of the contract, the customer may choose to continue with a Marbella improved.
The SEAT Ibiza is very close to its renewal
In another order of things, Automarket has revealed that the new SEAT Ibiza will be presented next October at the Paris motor show, with the sales scheduled for the beginning of the year. At the beginning of 2017, probably at the Geneva motor show, would also come to the market restyling of the SEAT Leon.
