Variation on a theme: Ibiza Bocanegra

At the Barcelona Motor Show (9th - 17th May), Seat will be presenting a revamp of the popular Ibiza. The latest incarnation of three-door supermini has been christened the 'Bocanegra' and is due to arrive in the showrooms in around twelve months' time. A Bocanegra prototype already made its debut at the Geneva Auto Salon.

Translated into English, the Spanish name means 'black mouth'. And this dark orifice is indeed the most characteristic feature of the vehicle, a jet black grille dominating the front aspect. There have been a few other modifications to the front valance, including integrated fog lamps. In addition, Seat have given the Bocanegra new wings and a reshaped tailgate. The sporty character of the car has been accentuated by the addition of 17-inch wheels. This new version comes equipped with a 1.4-litre TSI engine delivering either 150 or 180 horsepower.
