Concept-inspired style pack set for latest Seat Ibiza Cupra

Seat will unveil a production version of the Bocanegra concept, based on the Ibiza Cupra, at the Barcelona motor show this May.

Inspired by the Seat Bocanegra concept from the 2008 Geneva show, the Ibiza Bocanegra will be based on the new 178bhp 1.4 TSI Cupra model, but will add the striking black grille that dominated the concept car.

Seat has yet to confirm whether the production car – essentially a styling pack – will retain the Bocanegra name, or whether there will be any other elements to the style pack other than the solid black nose, but expect sales to begin later this year after the regular Ibiza Cupra goes into production this July.

Our Verdict

Seat Ibiza
The Seat Ibiza is the marque's biggest-selling model, and with good reason

The Seat Ibiza is good looking, well-priced and spacious supermini that doesn’t quite live up to Seat’s sporty image

    The DS 5 is hard to pigeonhole but it works as a package. Impressive French-style long-range cruiser, albeit at strong money for an unproven brand

    The 4C improves, and the Spider is a good conversion, but it remains dynamically troubled and absurdly expensive

    More traction and nothing separating Jag's monstrous V8 mouthpiece from your ears. It's the shoutiest, priciest F-Type on sale, but is it the best?

    The C63 may have lost its big V8, but its replacement makes it difficult to mourn
