At Frankfurt the Spanish brand's unique design language is extended to a
sports saloon concept with a dynamic, confident look. The Seat IBL combines a
clean, minimalist exterior with an innovative, premium interior that clearly
conveys its quality and precision.
James Muir, President of Seat, S.A.
said: 'The IBL shows that sports saloons within the Seat brand portfolio will
play an important role in future. However, this concept car does not pre-empt a
specific model, but rather shows the design philosophy we are applying to bring
the unmistakable Seat identity to a saloon car, too.'
He added: 'The IBL
is the perfect representation of Seat brand values - with its distinctive look,
its precision and its premium feel. Over the next few years, Seat will embark
upon a product offensive that will see the spirit of the IBL reflected in
several series-production models.'
The IBL completes Seat's
series of concept cars that define the genetic design pool for the ongoing
development of the sporty Spanish brand's cars. Laying the groundwork was the
highly acclaimed IBE compact electric sports coupé. The IBX that followed
showcased the new DNA code of Seat design in a completely different vehicle
architecture - a crossover between SUV and sports coupé.
Dr Matthias Rabe,
Vice-President of Research and Development at Seat, said: 'In Seat's Technical
Centre (CTS) we have combined the latest technology that the Volkswagen Group
offers with our design language to achieve products as exciting as the IBL.'
