Intrinsic attributes such as first-rate engineering, stylish design and premium comfort spurred the unbounded popularity of the first-generation SEAT Ibiza. There are now three different versions, all of which retain these core principles whilst introducing new individual benefits to complement specific driving requirements and styles. The classic Ibiza five-door, the athletic SC and the spacious ST each offer unique advantages.
The energetic look of the Ibiza is consistent throughout the range, with strong dynamic lines highlighting the car's incredible capacity for movement. The Sport Coupé's curving bonnet and wraparound headlamps accentuate this athletic feel, whilst the lengthened Sports Tourer offers added space inside and out, with a roomy cabin and roof rails for extra transportation space. In each of the three versions new bi-Xenon headlamps offer increased visibility on the road, whilst dark tinted windows and stylish alloy wheels add captivating charm.
The impressive design features continue inside the Ibiza with luxury upholstery options, steering wheel-mounted controls, premium comfort seating and a stylish dashboard finish. With the ST a large illuminated glovebox compartment provides storage for longer journeys and the central front armrest provides added comfort.
The automatic climate control function regulates the interior environment too, to maintain a steady temperature within your SEAT. All your entertainment needs are covered with an in-built radio/CD player with four crisp speakers and USB connectivity options, as well as a Bluetooth® hands-free communication system.
Across the range there are a number of different high-performing, fuel-efficient units to choose from to suit your individual needs. The 1.2-litre diesel Ecomotive engine has staggeringly low emissions of just 92g/km of CO2. This places it in the cost-effective tax-free band. Top of the efficiency stakes in the petrol range is the 1.2-litre 105bhp TSI, with just 119g/km of CO2. Speed-sensitive assisted power-steering makes manoeuvring a breeze and with the Direct Shift Gearbox available in the automatic range, gear-shifting is smooth and simple.
As well as being incredibly fun to drive, the SEAT Ibiza is incredibly safe. With a range of measures to ensure that you have total command of the road, you are protected at all times. The Electronic Stability Control system and Electronic Brake Assist functions are all aimed at keeping you steady and safe on the roads. Automatic warning lights signal to alert other drivers in the event of sudden braking. Other key features include head and chest airbags, three-point safety seatbelts, and tyre pressure monitoring to let you know when you need to give those treads a top-up.
