The model, which shares Seat's corporate front-end design but also includes a short, heavily-raked windscreen and wraparound side windows, wears a prominent Cupra badge at the front. That suggests the car will be powered by the same 1.4-litre TSI engine as the current Ibiza Cupra hatchback. Its power is also likely to be close to the 178bhp of that car.
At the rear, there’s a boot-mounted spoiler and prominent buttresses behind the two front seats.
Seat says it will reveal more information about the concept closer to the Worthersee event, but the Cupster will not be the only concept car from VW Group on display. Also confirmed is the Skoda CitiJet, an open-top variant of the Citigo with sporty accents and a 74bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine under the bonnet.
Audi will also be showing its new A3 Clubsport Quattro concept, which previews the upcoming RS3 saloon. Although details are unknown at the moment, a concept car from Volkswagen itself is also expected to be seen at the event.
