The new design gives sharp lines and a sporty finish, whilst this 5th generation version is more roomy inside.
The all-new Ibiza will be the first Volkswagen Group product to use the group’s new A0 MQB platform, which can be used for a variety of models in the same range. This gives the car a huge number of benefits, including a much-improved chassis, better ride quality and comfort, plus access to new powertrains, hardware and infotainment systems.
The new look includes full optional LED headlights. The all-new interior comes complete with an eight-inch infotainment screen and ambient lighting that can be changed between red and white. The longer wheelbase provides a roomier cabin, and the boot space has increased from 292 to 355 litres.
The New Ibiza comes in a selection of quality trim levels, including:
Safety Features (some standard, some optional)
The all-new Ibiza has beaten its main supermini competitors in a nine-car group test by leading weekly motoring magazine Autocar.
The comparison, published in the 5 July edition of the title, pitted the latest addition to the SEAT line-up against the Ford Fiesta, Mini One, Mazda 2, Citroen C3, Kia Rio, Suzuki Swift, Renault Clio and Nissan Micra – and the Ibiza beat the lot.
This victory comes hard on the heels of a five-star review in Autocar’s sister title, What Car?, and Auto Express’s ‘Best Supermini’ award last month, giving the car three terrific results even before it hits showrooms this summer.
Autocar concluded: “One thing is clear: with its handsome looks, practical and appealing cabin, superior infotainment functions and a driving experience that comes closer than any other to equalling the Ford’s in the broadest terms, the new SEAT Ibiza is the biggest achiever in 2017’s brave new world of small cars.”
