SEAT Ibiza Cupra Concept

This can be what the next SEAT Ibiza Cupra looks like. The concept car is a showcase of how far the designers can go with the current shape to bring more sport to the fans of the Ibiza.

The Ibiza Cupra Concept is fitted with SEAT’s award-winning 1.4-litre TSI four-cylinder petrol engine, featuring direct injection and both a turbocharger and a supercharger.  It produces a maximum power output of 180 PS, transmitted to the front wheels via a highly-sophisticated seven-speed DSG transmission with shift paddles.  Other highlights include XDS electronic differential lock, high-performance brakes and an optional SEAT Portable System that combines navigation and entertainment functions and is removable for mobile use.

The cool looks of the new car are because of the new front fascia with mesh grille and LED headlights, and a rear diffuser with a massive single tailpipes.


SEAT press release:

Expressive design with powerful lines
The sharp design communicates the spirit of the new Ibiza Cupra Concept from the very first glance – this compact hot hatch has a solid and powerful stance.  The new face with its broad grille and bold air intakes emphasises the breadth, solidity and power of the Ibiza Cupra Concept.  The sophisticated design of the headlamps shows the attention to detail in the work carried out at the SEAT Design Center.  Typical of SEAT’s design language are the highly defined outlines to the lamps, which at the same time are integrated perfectly into the Ibiza’s sculptural form.  The LED daytime running lights trace the line of the headlamps to deliver a unique light signature, as do the LED rear lights.  From a technical point of view, the bi-xenon headlamps provide enhanced illumination, while cornering lights are integrated into the large fog lamps.

In profile the three-door Ibiza SC bodyshape is brought to life by its sharply drawn lines and edges, while the muscular rear shoulders and 17-inch wheels underscore its dynamics.  The exterior mirrors are painted gloss black – as is the Cupra tradition –  and offer a clear contrast to the distinctive Crono Yellow paint finish of the Cupra Concept in Beijing.  The powerful rear end underscores once more the special role of the Ibiza Cupra as the new benchmark among compact sports cars – the yellow of the broad bumper frames the substantial, matt-black, diffuser and the trapezoidal exhaust outlet.

Clear interior of the very best quality
The emotional power of the exterior design is also apparent from the interior of the Ibiza Cupra Concept and in the clean, minimalist and clearly structured cockpit.  The exceptional feeling of quality and precision craftsmanship serves to underscore SEAT’s incredibly high standards.  The new sports steering wheel with the Cupra logo and the shift paddles for the DSG transmission, the dedicated instruments and the leather sports seats with their lateral flashes of yellow to match the Cupra exterior are all clear indications of the special role held by the top version of the Ibiza range.

The entertainment system in the Ibiza Cupra Concept is completely new – and the powerful audio set-up can be complemented by the innovative SEAT Portable System. The highly affordable solution with a 5-inch screen is removable for mobile use and yet perfectly integrated into the vehicle’s electronics.  Its many functions include a navigation system, hands-free phone system with voice control and an on-board computer.  At a later point, the SEAT Portable System will be available as an option for the entire Ibiza family.

With the Ibiza Cupra Concept, driving enjoyment and cutting-edge engineering are guaranteed.
