A Seat Leon coupe could go on sale as soon as winter 2011, Autocar has learned.
The car is designed to build the brand’s sporting credentials, and Seat hopes it wil provide a Scirocco style boost to its brand.
“A design proposal already exists for this car,” said Seat sales and marketing boss Jan Lafrentz.
“We see Leon and Ibiza as the two main pillars of our product line-up, and it makes sense for us to expand them as much as possible. A C-segment coupe is much more easy to package than a B-segment coupe, and would be more profitable for us.
“The Scirocco has done great things for Volkswagen, and I believe this car could do even greater things for us."
