Starting with the next generation Ibiza, SEAT states that the front bumper design of this concept will be the face of its upcoming generation of models. This new product initiative which will extend over the next few years

At the VW press event this evening, Spanish subsidiary, SEAT revealed their Bocanegra Concept sport coupe.  Slated as the next geneneration Ibiza, which debuts in 2009, the Bocanegra gets a dose of SEAT's trademark "dynamic line" body styling cues most noticeable in the Altea and Leon models, but also gets a little flavor from sister company, Audi, as well.  Looking at the overall vehicle it's not difficult to see some resemblance to the Audi A1 Metroprojekt concept which debuted in Tokyo last year, but despite this, the Bocanegra is eye-catching and very attractive.

Translated as "black mouth" the Bocanegra has a black front end.  But the interesting part about the front end is that its upper bumper section is covered by a semi-transparent Perspex acrylic sheet which extends up into the headlamps and acts as the headlamps outer lens.  The transition is seamless, and if you don't look closely, you won't notice it.  As a result, the effect is a tinted black front end which only allows the headlight units, with their eye-catching LEDs to peer out. 

Starting with the next generation Ibiza, SEAT states that the front bumper design of this concept will be the face of its upcoming generation of models. This new product initiative which will extend over the next few years will includes a new B-segment sedan vehicle which will also makes its debut in 2009. Please read below for full details.
