Seat IBX Concept production confirmed

IBX would be built in Martorell, Spain alongside its sibling the Audi Q3 with which it will share a platform

Seat has been given the greenlight for production of the IBX Concept by the VW Group, according to a report in the Spanish newspaper ABC.

The Spanish automaker debuted the IBX at the Geneva auto show last March as a two-door concept but the model is likely to be converted to a five-door for production as it is intended to be a compact urban crossover/SUV model.

The IBX will share a platform with the Audi Q3, which is built in Martorell, Spain. According to the report, Seat officials are looking at the plant's capacity capabilities to fit IBX production there. The IBX would debut sometime in 2014.

Woah, awesome. SEAT's lineup has seriously lacked in 4x4/crossover platforms. Impressed to see them coming in the form of a concept car turned production.

Finally! You're right, SebXX, the production model will certainly be different (by that I mean ...not so good looking as the concept) but we all hope that it'll be just fine. Its mission will be more difficult than Vw's and Skoda's , 'cause their Tiguan (the original one) and Yeti have already established a solide position, so, as the latest in the "Tiguan club" IBX (or whatever name will be given) would have to proove it's a viable option. I don't know why but I'm pretty sure it'll be desired more buy women.

Remember it's just the concept car, we'll have to hope the production model won't turn ugly (but I bet headlights will be bigger, and it'll get 5doors) So yes this one is better looking than Q3, but how about the production version... We'll see :)
