Shown at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show, the SEAT Bocanegra has apparently been green-lit as the next variant of the SEAT Ibiza.

According to AutoCar, the Bocanegra will be unveiled on home turf at the Barcelona Motor Show. It's essentially a styling package for the SEAT Ibiza Cupra with 178 HP 1.4 liter four cylinder TSI, getting a more aggressive grille treatment, lowered suspension and special wheels. No doubt there will be unique interior upgrades as well to round out the deal. New, more aggressive-looking trim levels for compact cars? Oh Malaise II, we knew you wouldn't let us down.
