The all-new Ibiza aims to set the brand vision for the future, with a completely new design that has sharp lines and a sporty finish. The fifth-generation model is more compact on the outside and bigger on the inside than its predecessor. Now based on the A0 MQB platform the New SEAT Ibiza has a much-improved chassis, better ride quality and comfort. The fresh appearance is more sculptured with contoured lines, resulting in a youthful and sporty look with full optional LED headlights.
The New SEAT Ibiza has impressively increased its interior roominess, it is a lot more robust, and also, a lot safer. It is much wider by a stunning 87 mm, it is two mm short and one lower than the previous model, but more than anything, the change in its dimensions conveys a powerful image of a car that hugs the ground.
The key is in the new MQB A0 platform. The result is a much more comfortable car, with the new SEAT Ibiza being both roomier on the inside and larger on the outside.
Thanks to more than three decades of history and its importance as the main pillar in the SEAT brand, the 5th generation of the Ibiza has been a total challenge in terms of design. It had to be fresh and young, and yet mature and balanced too. And this is how the new SEAT Ibiza stands out straight away; it's perfect proportions, strong character and agile look. Its characteristics SEAT brushstrokes have not just been maintained, but taken to the next level, pushing the evolution of SEAT's design DNA.
Exclusive dynamic design elements have been specifically created for it like, rear diffuser, exclusive front bumper, sport suspension and exclusive exterior black pack.
The interior ambient LED lighting for the FR and XCellence versions is offered in two colours, red and white. The use of LED technology for the interior and exterior lights is not an aesthetic whim. LEDs offer much higher quality lighting while saving energy, thus yielding improved fuel economy. The full LED lights on the Ibiza (headlights, dashboard, indicators and rear fog lights) are new in this class.
The driving assistance systems built into the new Ibiza include elements that, while already present in Leon and Ateca, are quite unusual in this class. The new SEAT ibiza features Front Assist, Traffic Jam Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Keyless Entry System with heartbeat engine start button, a new generation of front and rear parking sensors and a rear view camera with a higher quality and precision reflected in a premium 8" touchscreen with glass panel.
All of the engines available on the new SEAT Ibiza comply with the Euro6 emissions regulation and lead the way in performance, with outstanding features, high mileage and low emissions.
There are three aluminium block and cylinder petrol engines to choose from. The first option is the 3 cylinder 1.0 TSI with 95 or 115 PS, along with a turbo compressor, intercooler and direct injection. A new 1.5 TSI will be available in late 2017 with four cylinders and 150 PS. Efficient 1.6 TDI diesel engines will come in 80, 95 and 115 PS varieties. Finally, the new MQB A0 platform allows the New Ibiza to offer a compressed-natural gas (CNG) powered 90-PS 1.0 TSI engine. SEAT is the first maker to offer an engine of this type in this class.
The gearboxes available are a manual 5-speed transmission for the 95-PS and lower engines and a 6-speed transmission for the more powerful engines. The dual-clutch DSG 7-speed gearbox is another of the options available on the new SEAT Ibiza. The car’s dynamic behaviour, ride quality and driving comfort are exceptional thanks to the new MQB A0 platform, as well as to the 30% higher torsional stiffness
