Default 20?? SEAT SUV

Allegedly leaked photo of the future SEAT SUV. It seems to be the finished product, not some proto.

We all know a SUV was an overdue necessity for SEAT, and this really is a bold one. It looks very nice, except for the grille which lacks any personality.

This looks really promising, interesting that it seems to be coming as a 3 door as well.

A Seat SUV is really long overdue.

It's overdue, true. A 3 door is an interesting take on "the poor man's Evoque", but for volume sales, I hope a 5 door is in the cards as well. And hopefully, unlike the finished SEAT SUV we've seen through leaked patent shots, this will eventually really be available. And I guess this is the Seat/Skoda SUV confirmed this week to be built as Skoda in Czech republic...

I have to disagree! VW is seen by consumers as a Toyota/Ford/Hyundai level brand here. It's bad enough that VW doesn't "know its place" in NA, thinking it is a near-premium/premium brand rather that entry level brand, but it would be far worse if they added another brand. As it is, VW and Audi step on each other too much. Adding a brand that would step on VW and Audi would be unwise, but cherry picking Skoda an SEAT for VW's NA portfolio--and pricing them appropriately would be brilliant.

sorry for my ignorance - but who is SEAT? Obviously not available in North America - but are they entry level? Which markets do they play in?

Crash, once a Spanish FIAT, VW bought SEAT quite some time ago and have attempted to fashion them (with little success) as an Alfa-like, except as a Mediterranean equivalent to the price point Skoda occupies in Central and Eastern Europe.

What's a Mediterranean equivalent to Skoda? Alfa is?
