The New Seat Ibiza Is Just The Beginning

More than the culmination of its development, the debut of a new model can often prove just the beginning. Take the Seat Ibiza, for example, which has bread more variants than we’d care to count – and which has now been replaced with an all-new model.

You can be assured that there’ll be many, many more versions to follow, but we’ll have to wait to see them all as they trickle out one at a time. Leave it, then, to the legions of automotive rendering artists to fill in the gaps – the multiple gaps, in this case.

Hot on the heels of the new Mk5 Ibiza’s reveal, X-Tomi Design gave us a preview of what the Cupra performance version might look like. But he’s since done several more.

Included below are X-Tomi’s visual forecasts of what the new Ibiza would look like as a Cupra 250 hot hatch, X-Perience off-roader, ST wagon, SC coupe… even a convertible and a sedan.

Unfortunately most of these will never come to fruition. Seat has already nixed the idea of an extended wagon or three-door coupe, and the idea of a convertible is even less likely to come to fruition. But the renderings are certainly food for thought.

    Apparently the 3 door and Estate version will not receive a replacement (3 door hatchbacks are clearly a breed dying, and the estate will be replaced by the Arona cross over, just like it was the case with Peugeot). A convertible is highly unlikely, and the Cordoba sedan already died a generation ago (plus they have the Toledo as a cheapo sedan, and even that is far from a success)

      Yes, convertible hatches are as much use to manufacturers these days as tits on a fish.

        Exactly, hatchback convertibles have been redundant since the early 90’s. Actually, who buys convertibles? It must depend on climate, but either way you’ll look like a tit

      Globalisation is key, well, Global in the world of SEAT I mean, but it’s pretty shitty this world of zero choice. Buy a 5-door hatchback, because that’s all you are allowed; it will work for the majority I know, but those inbetween and undecided will find another car, or not buy a car at all
