New SEAT Ibiza
The SEAT Ibiza is the brand’s best-selling vehicle and has paved the way for SEAT’s enormous success as it works towards growing its position as a global company, delivering vehicles to markets across the world.
Since its introduction in 1984 the SEAT Ibiza has sold nearly six million units across all generations, and the latest generation is set to continue the huge success of the urban car.
The new SEAT Ibiza combines a refreshed exterior design that enhances its look by incorporating features such as 100% LED headlamps technology as standard and a range of new alloy wheels designs. Smaller, more subtle additions such as the model’s name finished in handwritten lettering and a two-tone chrome finished SEAT logo add to the delicate improvements.
Inside a revolution has happened. A completely new soft dashboard that houses a larger, floating central infotainment system signifies the shift to a digital approach, putting the SEAT Ibiza more in-sync with the world around it. Control is more tangible thanks to the new ergonomically designed multifunction Nappa steering wheel, while the quality of the fit and finish is now even more apparent, highlighted most obviously by the integration of the newly designed air vents, illuminated using the latest lighting technology.
A vehicle that isn’t connected to the digital world can’t truly be a complete part of our lives, and the new SEAT Ibiza gives full control to the user whether they are in the cabin or out of the vehicle completely.
The Wireless Full Link system takes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay into the cabin, and with it access to a plethora of functionality and information. But that’s just the beginning. Out-car connectivity is enhanced thanks to SEAT CONNECT, while interaction is simplified and streamlined with the introduction of the new 8.25” and 9.2” infotainment systems (20% bigger on average compared to the previous generation of infotainment) and voice control that benefits from natural language to make the whole process intuitive and instinctive.
The new SEAT Ibiza is the safest in the model’s history. New advanced driver assistance systems such as Lane Assist, Side Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition work together to provide security no matter what the driving scenario. And Travel Assist technology delivers semi-automatic driving no matter what the speed to offer reassurance on both long and short journeys.
Under the bonnet the new SEAT Ibiza delivers performance, efficiency and driveability through its range of petrol and compressed natural gas powertrain options. Six different powertrains are available – five petrol and one CNG – ranging in output from 80PS (59kW) to 150PS (110kW) linked to either a manual or DSG dual-clutch transmission.
But the new SEAT Ibiza doesn’t lose any of its fun to drive. The powertrain line-up delivers enough dynamism to make sure that the experience is just as involving whether you’re taking on the city streets or heading out on the open road.
