It's time to be jealous of our European counterparts once again as we discover more exciting vehicles that won't be heading to North America. This time it's the turn of VW's Spanish subsidiary, Seat. The company has released images of its new Ibiza SportCoupe that's goes on sale across European this summer.
The engine options will include frugal gasoline units; 69hp 1.2 liter, 85hp 1.4 liter and 105hp 1.6liter. Then there are three diesel options for the even better mpg, including a 1.4 and two 1.9 engines.
Even more tantalizing is the possibility of a sporty Cupra version equipped with one of VW's TSI turbo and supercharged engine.
The three-door coupe is almost one inch lower than the five-door hatchback it's based on and is promised to be the first car in its class to offer VW's seven-speed DSG transmission.
The styling is reminiscent of Seat's earlier Bocangra concept, although it's been watered down for this regular model. But expect to see more dramatic styling in the Cupra version.
With good looks, good economy and sporty models on the horizon, US enthusiasts can only gaze from afar at what we're missing.
