• Seat Terra/Terra box

The Seat Marbella is a three-door compact car that is based on the Fiat Panda. It was established as the revised version from the fall of 1985.

The separation of the takeover by Fiat and VW made it seem a distinction necessary. The technical review of the Fiat Panda in early 1986, which concerned the chassis especially, and the introduction of the new Fire engines were no longer accepted at Marbella. Compared to the second Fiat Panda the standard Marbella were not as well equipped. For example, there were initially a rear wiper and a right side mirror only in the GLX version.

The two front transverse-mounted 4-cylinder engines (843cc/34 PS/25 kW and 903cc/40 PS/29 kW) were first adopted from its predecessor. One year after the start of production of the smaller engine was gone, but there was the 903cc engine with 42 kW PS/31. Later, its performance increased even to 45 PS/34 kW. As of December 1986 was due to popular demand, the 34hp engine back into the program.

In 1991, the prototype Seat Marbella Playa was (German: beach) presented as a recreational vehicle between pick-up and convertible. He was equipped with a roof rack for transporting surfboards and a removable Targa roof above the front seats. The front view had been updated.

Instead, there was later a Playa, which was an ordinary Marbella with a fabric sunroof.
