Seat’s newly-launched sub-brand Cupra has announced that it will be showcasing a new SUV coupe at the upcoming Geneva motor show, which is set to take place in March. The new model, rumoured to be called Terramar, is tipped to get a unique exterior look that will better help distinguish the Cupra brand from parent company Seat.

Design-wise, besides sporting a different look from mainstream Seats, the new SUV coupe will apparently adopt the body style of the 20V20 concept first previewed in 2015, but considerably tweaked for a radically different look, Autocar reports.

Word is the SUV coupe will be wider and lower than the Cupra Ateca, featuring a sloping roofline, pronounced rear haunches and a front fascia design that’s inspired from the Tarraco large SUV.

For performance, it’s likely that the Terramar will adopt the engine and running gear from the Cupra Ateca. That means motive power should come from a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, possibly tuned to produce slightly over 300 hp. A seven-speed DSG gearbox and variable four-wheel drive system are also said to be featured here.

Beyond that, Cupra may even tweak the SUV’s chassis and suspension – Autocar says the vehicle appeared to sport a wider track in previous leaked photos, suggesting an improvement in the handling department.

The Terramar will play a major part in Cupra’s goal to establish its own identity, and a new organisational structure has already been implemented. Company CEO Wayne Anthony Griffiths said Cupra plans to reach an annual sales volume of 30,000 units in the next three to five years, while Cupra-specific staff will also be hired. What do you think of this, folks?
