The new Seat SUV will be a rival to the Nissan Qashqai and Mazda CX-5, and will be similar in size to them.

It will be based on the Seat Leon, so expect it to have a similar footprint to that car, albeit with all the usual SUV benefits including a raised driving position, a more spacious interior and a larger boot.

Seat boss Jurgen Stackmann says the car will stand out ffrom its opposition for its focus on driving agility, space and stand-out design.

"The first test mules are on the road now and we are already optimistic for what is to come," said Stackmann. "We are looking for agility and precision from the dynamics, utility inside and great design that expresses our values. We have done a lot of research in to why people buy these kinds of vehicles and what our competitors already offer, and these characteristics should help us stand out.

"The design is perhaps the most interesting part. It is not about giving the vehicle a rough and tumble look - most will never go off-road. People buy these cars for their function, because the high seat gives them better visibility and a feeling of safety and because they express personality perhaps better than any other mainstream section of the car market."
