Seat delivers a bold new design language with its Bocanegra mini-car at Geneva

11 Mar 2008

SEAT presented its new mini-car at the Geneva motor show, displaying a bold new design theme.

While the Bocanegra won’t come to Australia, it does use the VW Group’s next-generation mini-car platform which will be employed under the new Polo.

The hot-hatch show car is powered by the VW 1.4-litre TSI turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine linked to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic.

It will become the only car in the mini-car class to run a dual-clutch automatic, although it is likely the new Polo will also be offered with the same engine and transmission.

It features a semi-transparent black front bumper surface that also covers the headlights.

A strong design crease runs down from corners of the headlights to the rear wheels, while another line runs from just behind the door-handles to the top of the tail-lights.
