Life is becoming increasingly digital-first and the refreshed SEAT Ibiza is ready to be part of it, now fully connected with in-car connectivity (online-based functions and services; Full Link including wireless access to both Android Auto and CarPlay) and out-car connectivity with SEAT CONNECT.
With the integration of the wireless Full Link system, customers can access their digital lives no matter what device they use, be it Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. It simplifies the process of bringing in contact lists, music and mapping systems, as they are all available, accessed in a controlled, intuitive, safe manner that doesn’t distract drivers from the road, using either the infotainment system or the integrated steering wheel controls.
The infotainment system delivers an even richer experience with online content available at the touch of a button – or verbal request – whether it’s traffic information, parking, petrol stations or internet radio and media online.
Natural voice recognition makes using the technology safe and simple; saying “Hola Hola” wakes up the system, much like the home assistants from the consumer electronics world that everyone is so used to. Voice recognition allows the user to interact with the infotainment system using natural commands, making corrections and referencing previous commands. So, whether you need to find navigation information or search for music, it is quicker and easier.
And with two Type-C USB ports in the front of the cabin, connecting, and recharging devices is simplicity itself.
The new SEAT Ibiza also integrates SEAT CONNECT with a built-in eSIM, meaning that the eCall service is available, which directly contacts emergency services in case an incident occurs, adding yet another level of safety to the vehicle. It’s not only the possibility to make an emergency call (manual or automatic) but also that important data from the vehicle will be sent to the emergency services such as car position, engine type, vehicle exterior colour or number of passengers, making it easier for them to assist.
In addition, the built-in eSIM also offers the possibility of reaching SEAT services through the “private call” button; this assistant allows the driver to contact SEAT services in their own language, no matter where they are driving. SEAT CONNECT will be offered free of charge for one year, no matter which version or trim the customer chooses.
In addition, it includes the SEAT CONNECT App, which opens a whole new world of possibilities by giving access to remote services. The App can be downloaded to your smart device, providing remote control over a host of features that will help maximize the driving experience beyond the car.
Users can remotely access their vehicle’s data: driving data, parking position, vehicle’s status, including doors and lights, set up speed alerts so you can be warned if someone using your vehicles is driving too quickly, area and anti-theft alerts, open and close the doors with the remote lock and unlock service, or can remotely activate the horn and turn signals to find the car more easily.
