The new Seat model is based on the old, outgoing Audi A4 and even though Audi has no more use for the platform, it is still a very modern, safe and agile foundation to work from.

Based on old Audi A4

Seat has been testing an early mule for their upcoming range-topping sedan under the cover of darkness and a small army of security guards. Our spy photographers still managed to catch this test mule in the Swiss Alps undergoing road-testing only days after catching Seat's brand new Ibiza.

The new Seat model is based on the old, outgoing Audi A4 and even though Audi has no more use for the platform, it is still a very modern, safe and agile foundation to work from. The test mule, with Seat's new front design securely taped up, still mostly resembles the A4, but the wider and lower radiator will be accompanied by more Seat particular styling cues when the project progresses.

From Seat's statement in May 2007: “SEAT will have two versions: a saloon and an estate car....whose market launch is planned for 2009”. Stay tuned for more on the topic when it becomes available.
