SEAT is updating its Ibiza, adding a refreshed exterior look, a revolution to the interior, as well as new levels of connectivity and driver assistant systems.
The SEAT Ibiza has been a key pillar of the brand’s success since it was first introduced back in 1984, and after 37 years, five generations and nearly 6 million sales, it’s SEAT’s most successful vehicle to ever roll off the production line. The facelifted fifth generation is aiming to maintain that winning mentality as a key model in its segment in Europe.
“The SEAT Ibiza is an icon in the automotive industry and one of the key pillars of the brand,” said Wayne Griffiths, President of SEAT and CUPRA. “The refreshed fifth-generation’s new exterior modifications and interior revolution, together with new levels of connectivity and safety mean it’s ready to continue the success story.”
The world’s become increasingly digitalised and the SEAT Ibiza is ready to be part of the journey, bringing greater intuitiveness, functionality and quality to the interior space, achieved through an improved design language and increased levels of connected technology and new, more elegant materials.
Add to this the use of lighting technology to improve the cabin’s ambience and the inclusion of the latest infotainment display systems, to bring a strong updated language and feel to the car’s personality.
Under the bonnet, the new SEAT Ibiza will offer six different powertrains between 80PS and 150PS, in petrol and compressed natural gas, linked to either manual or DSG dual-clutch transmissions.
Finally, the SEAT Ibiza adds a range of new driver assistance systems that make driving the urban car more relaxing no matter what the scenario.
Designed, developed and produced in Barcelona, at SEAT’s headquarters in Martorell, the new SEAT Ibiza will enter production in the third quarter of the year.
