Seat has anticipated the new Ibiza Cupra displaying a concept in its almost definitive form at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. Compared to the original, the facelift version boasts a more streamlined outline, aggressive front and rear bumpers, black wing mirrors and all-new lights: the bi-xenon headlights feature LED daytime running lights and cornering lights are integrated into the large fog lamps. 17-inch alloy wheels and a trapezoidal exhaust system complete the aesthetics of the sports hatch. Inside we find the Seat Portable System entertainment system with 5-inch detachable monitor.
The Cupra concept is equipped with a 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine featuring both a turbocharger and a supercharger with output of 180hp and 250Nm, mated to a seven-speed DSG gearbox with double clutch technology (as seen on the Skoda Fabia RS and Volkswagen Polo GTI).
