The production version of the concept can be fitted with either TSI or TDI engines

SEAT has just premiered the 20V20 concept at this year's Geneva Motor Show. Made by the company as a precursor to a future production crossover, the concept also aims to display the brand's new design philosophy which will be used on their future models.

“The 20V20 reflects SEAT’s ambition in the future. With this showcar we are highlighting how we intend to develop our brand’s design language. At SEAT we aim to develop and produce highly emotional cars that appeal to our customers, with plenty of character, innovative design, modern technology, quality and precision at an affordable price,” said Jurgen Stackmann, Chairman of SEAT.

It has a sleek side profile that shows a low roofline and is accompanied by 20-inch alloy wheels housed inside flared wheel arches. Defined character lines and tapered taillights dominate the rear design of the SEAT 20V20.

The concept crossover can seat 4 and gets a brown and silver finish. The cabin also features a digital instrument panel, a center-mounted infotainment system and a three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel.

In addition, the future production crossover will also have a DSG twin-clutch gearbox that is connected to an electronically-controlled 4WD system.
