Petrol and compressed natural gas (CNG) take centre stage in the revised SEAT Ibiza powertrain line-up, delivering efficiency and dynamics.
Under the bonnet, the new SEAT Ibiza will offer six different powertrains: five petrol units with outputs ranging from 80PS (59kW) to 150PS (110kW), joined by a 90PS (66kW) CNG unit, linked to either manual or DSG dual-clutch transmissions.
The entry three-cylinder 1.0 litre MPI petrol engine is matched to a five-speed manual transmission. The unit’s multi-point injection system helps the engine deliver excellent response at low- to mid-revs, while the 80PS (59kW) power output and 93Nm of torque mean that it offers enough to handle the demands of modern-day driving.
Direct-injection technology is used extensively in the rest of the engine line-up, with three 1.0 EcoTSI options available and a larger 1.5 EcoTSI.
The 1.0 TSI 95PS (70kW) unit, linked to a five-speed manual transmission provides 175Nm of torque. The final three-cylinder unit delivers 110PS (81kW)/200Nm and is linked to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission.
The largest option in the range is the four-cylinder 1.5 EcoTSI. With an output of 150PS (110kW)/250Nm, it produces strong performance balanced with efficiency.
In addition to the petrol engine offer, the new SEAT Ibiza also includes a CNG version. The 1.0 TGI 90PS (66kW) unit, linked to a six-speed manual transmission provides 160Nm of torque
A CNG vehicle reduces CO2 emissions by about 25% compared to a petrol driven equivalent. As well as ecological and tax benefits, TGI technology offers exceptionally low costs per kilometre, up to 50% cheaper than a petrol equivalent model and 30% cheaper than a diesel.
SEAT is also supporting the development and availability of renewable bio-methane, which neutralises CO2 emissions generated through vehicle use. High quality bio-methane is obtained from organic waste residues and can either be added to conventional natural gas or used to substitute it completely. Bio-methane combines environmentally friendly mobility with the circular economy and reduces the CO2 impact of this engine type during its lifecycle.
