Seat SUV nears production ahead of 2016 launch

Seat SUV to arrive in 2016

New compact SUV is close to being given the go-ahead as Seat tries to claw its way back into profit

Seat’s long-mooted SUV is close to getting the green light for production, say company insiders.

The struggling Spanish car maker, which is the only unprofitable part of the Volkswagen Group, has made a number of attempts to get a compact SUV into the showroom, starting with the Tribu concept in 2007.

Not much is known about the new model, although Autocar understands that it won’t arrive until late 2015 or early 2016 and will be based on a new version of the MQB platform which is early in its development.
