The SEAT Ibiza is well known for its iconic and youthful design, defined by its perfect proportions. As the refreshed model enters the fray, it’s defined by subtle additions to the vehicle’s exterior design, that enhance the already characterful look of the model, across all trim levels (Reference, Style, Xcellence and FR).
Lighting technology is a central part of any vehicle’s external aesthetic, and the SEAT Ibiza now integrates 100% LED technology as standard - Eco-LEDs and the option of an upgrade with Full LEDs - offering better visibility with lower energy consumption.
The SEAT Ibiza’s side profile maintains its short overhangs with wheels pushed out to the four corners of the vehicle, providing incredible stability and highlighting its dynamics and sportiness. The visual cues are highlighted even further with the introduction of three new alloy wheel designs – two 17” and one 18” option.
One further aspect of the facelifted SEAT Ibiza’s differentiation is the inclusion of model’s name in embossed handwritten lettering. A delicate change that helps bring the urban vehicle in line with the SEAT’s design themes.
Finally, the new SEAT logo is finished in two-tone chrome - matt on the front part and glossy on the borders - both in the front and rear, adding a stylish finishing touch to the car.
Those refined changes are highlighted by the range of colours now available; customers can choose from nine exterior colours, including two new paints: Sapphire Blue and Asphalt Blue.
The SEAT Ibiza’s interior represents a design revolution. New materials, technology and illumination systems improves its dynamic character with a greater level of perceived quality.
The new floating central infotainment system display is an obvious highlight in this new interior approach. The screen has grown on average by more than 20% compared to its predecessor – the standard screen is now 8.25”, while the optional screen is 9.2”. In addition, its higher position in the cabin – at the driver’s line of sight – improves its ergonomics, making it safer and more practical. Add to this the clear 10.25” Digital Cockpit and the interior of the new Ibiza is fully digital.
Improvements have been made to the fit, finish and quality throughout; one highlight is the completely new soft dashboard, which linked to the new and ergonomic multifunction steering wheel in Nappa (available in Style as an option, and in Xcellence and FR trims as standard) delivers an increased level of refinement. New upholstery also gives the interior space a greater level of value.
The use of lighting technology adds to the SEAT Ibiza’s interior personality. The driver and passenger side redesigned air vents benefit from surrounding LED lights – for FR and Xcellence-, with a different colour available depending on the trim level chosen – Daring Red for FR trim, Burgundy for Xcellence trim and Honey for Style and Reference trims -. It means the cabin space is more in-sync with the customer.
The boot’s total capacity remains at 355 litres, making it one of the best in class, and accessing the space is easier as the loading height is relatively low, proof, if it were needed, that SEAT knows how to combine design and functionality.
