New SEAT Ibiza

Written by Tim Barnes-Clay

SEAT has announced the pricing and technical specifications for the newly-updated Ibiza, which is now available to buy in the UK.

The entry price point starts at £16,945 OTR for the SE 1.0 TSI 95PS, reaching £21,725 OTR for the 1.0 TSI DSG-auto 110PS.

You can select from six distinct and highly-specified trims: SE, SE Technology, FR, FR Sport, XCELLENCE and XCELLENCE Lux.

For the new model, the power outputs are carefully matched with the desired trim level. The Ibiza 1.0 TSI 95PS is available across all trim levels, whilst the 1.0 TSI 110PS, and 1.0 TSI DSG-auto 110PS are for FR trims and above.

The Ibiza arrives as standard with a three-year/60,000 mile warranty, upgradable to four-years/75,000-miles for £165 RRP, or five-years/90,000-miles for £285 RRP.

Not bad, eh, dads? Let’s face it, we all need peace of mind when carting our little ones around.

Fresh Look

The facelift sees the introduction of a number of new-look features. There are three new alloy wheel designs available (two 17-inch and one 18-inch), as well as LED exterior lighting as standard. There is also a stylish, two-tone chrome SEAT logo with the Ibiza model name in embossed, handwritten lettering, and two new body colour finishes: Sapphire Blue and Asphalt Blue.

Reflecting the exterior enhancements, the interiors have also been updated, now featuring SEAT’s renowned Beats audio system as an option, and a 9.2” navigation screen available on SE Technology trim and above (SE trim comprises an 8.25” Touchscreen display).

Additionally, the Ibiza houses a high resolution digital cockpit in both FR Sport and XCELLENCE Lux trim.

To further create atmosphere within the cabin, the newly designed air vents have surround LED lighting, available in a range of colours depending on the trim selected – Daring Red for FR/FR Sport and Burgundy for XCELLENCE/XCELLENCE Lux.

Connectivity

As is always a priority with new SEAT vehicles, connectivity takes pride of place. To that end, the Ibiza features the SEAT Connect system and integrated wireless Full Link smart phone functionality, ensuring that you never feel digitally disconnected.

The new SEAT Ibiza is designed, developed and built at SEAT’s facilities in Martorell, Barcelona.
