Cupra could take its first independent model to the Geneva Motor Show


The arrival to the world of Cupra has allowed Seat to demonstrate in the Volkswagen Group what they are capable of. The proof is palpable in the Ateca , because for its price, there are few SUVs on the market with the same power/performance/quality/equipment ratio. However, they have to increase their range, because they do not want to remain as a niche firm that sells few units a year.

Therefore, they are working on the following steps: launching new models. In a first phase, they will be basically the same as Seat , that is, a Cupra Ibiza and Cupra León . However, in a second step, they will begin to develop their own models that have little or nothing to do with those in their matrix. In fact, according to the rumors, the first one we could meet in a matter of a month, because it will be present in Geneva .

The" Terramar "could be very close

 Cupra Ateca

According to Autocar, the first hundred percent Cupra model will be discovered in the Salon del Geneva Automobile . In this important appointment of the calendar, we could know the latest evolution of the concept 20V20 that Seat unveiled in Geneva in 2015. However, the lines used will be more aggressive, because rumors indicate that it will be lower and wider than the Ateca .

The Cupra Terramar , which is as the rumors suggest it will be called, will take the MQB platform one step further. Apparently, for its development the engineers of the brand will try to adapt the chassis, suspensions and other components of the current Ateca. Thus, they could increase the dynamic skills of a product that is already very good. In addition, to encourage him, would have the same gasoline engine 2.0 TSI with a power close to 300 HP coupled with the automatic transmission DSG.

For now we must be cautious, then neither Cupra nor Seat have commented on it. However we must not forget that in the roadmap of the new Spanish brand there are up to six models for the coming years. However, it is still premature the arrival of a product 100% own, although dreaming is free and nobody bitter a sweet.
