The SEAT Ateca will appear in next month's Geneva Motor Show, based on a prototype called 20V20 - itself revealed at the Swiss car show last year.
Both long-passionate SEAT lovers and newcomers to the brand have been eagerly awaiting the new SUV, which was officially revealed on February 10.
However, an image of the new vehicle did appear to have been accidentally leaked online, after the Ateca's infotainment screen was snapped showing a picture of the car's exterior.
The car marks an exciting new stage in the firm's history, as it takes aim at the lucrative SUV market. It is also believed that the Ateca will mark the re-launch of SEAT in Australia.
The Ateca will boast a range of ‘TSI’ turbo-petrol engines outputting up to 220kW alongside TDI turbo-diesel units with up to 176kW.
The Ateca assumes the dimensions of the 20V20 concept - it will come in at 4659mm long, 1841mm wide and 1600mm high.
The new SUV marks an exciting new period in the company's design language, too, as the prototype confirmed. The production model will not feature the sloping roof seen in the concept, however.
