Seat has published a teaser image depicting a concept which will preview their 2016 crossover.

It was about four years ago when Seat unveiled the IBX concept and now they are teasing a more near production concept previewing the company's first ever crossover which will probably be unveiled in final form this September at the Frankfurt Motor Show. As noticeable in the attached image, the design will be closely related to the Ibiza supermini and Leon compact hatchback.

Test mules have been spotted by our spy photographers several times and we know the model will be closely related to the MQB-based Leon but with an increased ride height, plastic body cladding and an optional all-wheel drive system. The model - described as being Leon's big brother - will actually be built by Skoda in Czech Republic and could later on spawn a hotter Cupra version with a more aggressive design and additional power.

Seat has previously announced the crossover will go on sale in 2016.
