The teaser image that accompanies the announcement shows the rear lighting signature of the Tarraco. However, the rear end is wider and the roofline appears to be slightly lowered.
So, is this a concept previewing the rumored coupe-SUV that will allegedly be named the Terramar? It’s possible, given that it’s described as “the very first vehicle developed specifically for the Cupra brand” by the automaker, whereas CEO Wayne Griffiths calls is “a special and unique car with striking and sculptural design”.
Given that it will represent what the brand stands for, it is expected to use a powerful powertrain, with the Cupra Ateca’s 300 PS (296 HP) 2.0-liter turbo-four being a likely candidate.
Another option is the Skoda Kodiaq RS’ 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel that in the Czech model puts out 240 PS (237 hp / 177 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque.
Subsequent to its official unveiling next Friday, Cupra will display the new concept to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, where Seat and Cuprqa will share a stand.
The automaker didn’t say when the production version will launch, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it before the end of the year.
