For 2015, the ongoing Geneva Motor Show saw the unveiling of SEAT’s first ever compact SUV – the 20V20 Concept, which stands for Vision 2020, and according to the VW owned Spanish manufacturer, it reveals its “strategic vision for the future”, and also “puts forward the new design language”. “The 20V20 shows our ambition”, said SEAT President Jürgen Stackmann today during the company’s presentation at the Geneva Motor Show. “It is our guiding star and the lighthouse for our development for the coming five-year period”.
Stackmann emphasised that “SEAT will be applying the winning Leon product formula to the entire range. We’ve taken all product decisions to consolidate the successful path started with LEON and we have finalised our product plan for the coming years. SEAT will shift focus from the small car to the compact car category. The centre of gravity shifts upwards entering big, fast growing and more profitable segments”.
In addition, Stackmann reaffirmed the brand’s commitment to enhancing connectivity, which is backed by the agreement announced yesterday with SAMSUNG.
According to SEAT, the 20V20 combines the dynamic silhouette of a four-door sports coupé with the refinement of an SUV and the versatility and utility of a mid-size estate car.
The 20V20 has a length of 4,659 mm, and comes with 20-inch wheels, adaptive full-LED headlamps, and seats five. The 20V20, when it reaches production, will be powered by an array of drive-tains ranging from the high-performance TSI and TDI motors to plug-in hybrids. The power is delivered to the wheels via the DSG transmission and electronically controlled all-wheel drive.
