The SEAT Ibiza is well known for its iconic and youthful design, defined by its perfect proportions. The new model is defined by subtle additions to the vehicle’s exterior aesthetic that enhance the already characterful visual.
Lighting technology is a central part of any vehicle’s ‘face’ and the SEAT Ibiza now integrates full LED technology as standard. Eco LEDs are standard on SE and SE Technology models, while FR models upwards get full LED technology, offering better visibility with lower energy consumption.
The Ibiza’s side profile maintains its short overhangs, with wheels pushed out to the four corners of the vehicle, providing stability and highlighting its dynamic ability. The visual proportion of the vehicle is further accentuated with the introduction of three new alloy wheel designs – two 17” (FR, Xcellence and Xcellence Lux trims) and one 18” option (FR Sport). There is a 15” alloy and 16” machined alloy wheel also available (SE and SE Technology respectively).
Another indication of the Ibiza’s update is the inclusion of model’s name in embossed handwritten lettering. Additionally, the SEAT logo is finished in two-tone chrome – matte on the front fascia and gloss finish on the borders.
SEAT Ibiza is now available in a range of nine colours, including two new finishes: Sapphire Blue and Asphalt Blue.
The interior represents a design and technology revolution. New materials and technology systems improves its dynamic character with a greater level of perceived quality.
The new central infotainment system display is the heartbeat of the digital core. The screen has increased in size by more than 20 per cent compared to its predecessor – the standard screen is now 8.25” (SE trim only) – with the larger 9.2” screen on SE Technology models and above. In addition, its higher position in the cabin – at the driver’s eye line – improves its ergonomics and ensures it’s safer to operate.
Additionally, a high-resolution 10.25” Digital Cockpit on FR Sport and Xcellence Lux models lift the Ibiza’s interior into the digital age.
Improvements have been made throughout; one highlight is the completely new soft dashboard, as well as the new ergonomic multifunction Nappa leather steering wheel, which deliver a greater level of refinement.
The lighting technology adds to the Ibiza’s personality. The driver and passenger air vents have been redesigned and the surrounds now illuminate (LED technology) – Honey (SE trim), Daring Red (FR) and Burgundy (Xcellence).
The boot space capacity remains at 355 litres, making it one of the best in class, and accessing the space is easy with a low loading height.
