A new report indicates the fifth generation Seat Ibiza will also form the basis of a crossover.

It was only a couple of weeks ago when Seat applied a mild facelift on its supermini but work is already well underway on a new generation already confirmed to come out in the second half of 2016. It will look even more like a mini Leon and will apparently spawn a crossover version positioned below next year's production version of the Leon-based 20V20 concept.

The Ibiza crossover won't be out from day one which means it will not reach production sooner than the second half of 2017, at the earliest. Just like the supermini, the small crossover will use an adaptation of Volkswagen Group's MQB platform and will come as standard with a front-wheel drive layout while the availability of an optional AWD system is not known at this point.
