DRIVING

What is it?

The Ibiza is Seat’s stylish supermini hatchback available in three and five-door guises, with the three-door version being badged SC. There is also as an estate which is badged Ibiza ST.

What is the Seat Ibiza like to drive?

The Ibiza is a cracking drive. The supermini not only looks great with rakish styling on the sides and front, but get behind the wheel, show the car an open road and you’ll come back beaming thanks to sharp steering and responsive engines. The car’s also nimble and economical round town.

What engines are available?

The diesel engine line-up is simple in the Ibiza with a choice of either a 75hp, 90hp with an auto gearbox, or 105hp 1.4-litre. The petrol line up is more extensive. Depending on trim level, the following range is available; a 1.0-litre in 75hp, 95hp or 110hp (with an automatic gearbox), then there’s a 1.2-litre in 90hp or 110hp outputs and at the top of the range there’s a 150hp 1.4-litre.

What are the key options?

Seat offers some great bright colours on the Ibiza, some of which are optional, satnav is also a useful option to have with the standard 5in touchscreen. You can also have parking sensors and a panoramic sunroof.

How spacious is the Seat Ibiza?

The five-door versions have lots of room in the cabin for a supermini. Adults can be carried in the rear seats without too much complaint. However the coupe-like three-door version has less head room in the rear. Boot space in the three-door SC is 284 litres against the five-door’s 292 litres. However, the estate ST version has a cavernous 430 litres of boot space which easily rivals cars from a class above.

Running Costs & Safety

What will it cost to run?

Business drivers have a good choice of engines to keep tax bills to a minimum. The 75hp diesel can be found as low as 90g/km for CO2 which means it sits in the 15% benefit in kind tax band. However, those looking for a petrol and an even lower tax bill, can opt for the 95hp 1.0-litre starting from 94g/km which sits in the 13% benefit in kind band.

What safety features does it have?

The Ibiza is well equipped for safety kit. All models get four airbags, active head restrains, child locks on the rear doors and three three-point seatbelts in the rear.
