Looking for Seat Ibiza Owners Manual?
The Entry-Level SEAT Ibiza Offers Big Car Quality At Surprising Prices. For a car aimed at the young and trendy, SEAT couldnt have lucked into a better name than Ibiza. In 1.2-litre guise, its a car thats still affordable even after youve booked your annual two-week bender in San Antonio, yet will never resemble the automotive equivalent of a bucket shop ticket.
When SEAT originally launched the Ibiza in 1984, they were hugely proud of the fact that it was their own undertaking and not merely a reheated Fiat. Okay, so they had a little hand from Porsche (and milked the subsequent PR opportunity) but as a first effort it was extremely good. At that time, Ibiza was just another buckets and spades Mediterranean destination. As the islands resorts developed into a sort of Mecca for holiday hedonists, so the Ibiza also became big business, attracting more new buyers to the SEAT family than any other product line.
The latest version offers fun, a little Latin spirit and a notion alien to many of the spaced-out Balearic clubbers a little sophistication. The 1.2-litre version that we examine here is fitted with a high-tech three-cylinder lightweight alloy engine that generates a modest 64bhp. This equates to a specific capacity of 53bhp per litre, not a whole hill of beans for a modern engine but this does go some way to endowing the little SEAT with an exceptional fuel economy average of some 47.
1mpg and a guaranteed place in the lowest carbon dioxide emissions taxation band. If youre interested in all out performance, the Ibiza isnt going to do a great deal for you with 60mph appearing in 14.7 seconds. The top speeds a respectable 103mph, but this is a modern supermini with the commensurate safety features that all tend to add weight.
If you want a quicker 1.2 wed recommend a Suzuki Bandit motorbike, but aside from that, youll not find too much to touch the little SEAT.
"Compared to its predecessor, the Ibiza is a dramatic improvement."
Available solely in Reference trim, the Ibiza 1.2 also offers the choice of either three or five doors in a package that starts at 7,545 for the base three-door and tops out at 8,145 for the five-door. Even in this model that props up the Ibiza range, buyers can expect to find big car features like tinted glass, a body-coloured rear spoiler, remote central locking, a six-speaker stereo system, one touch electric windows, a split-folding rear seat, electro-hydraulic power steering, a pollen filter and twin front airbags. The Ibiza of today carries the effects of a facelift which edged the car closer to its newer SEAT stalemates on aesthetic grounds.
Aggressive air-intakes are now evident, carved into the lower reaches of the front bumper. These evoke the ones on the SEAT Leon World Touring Car and emphasise the link that that the brand is always keen to make between its production models and motorsport ventures. Twin headlamps are also fitted as standard to all Ibizas, as are wheels of at least 15" in diameter - even on this entry-level model - but its round the back where most alterations have been made. The bumper is reshaped to incorporate a mock diffuser, another nod to SEATs motorsport activities. As with all modern SEATs, the Ibiza displays its name centrally on its tailgate, below the large SEAT badge which doubles as the boot release. Inside youll spot a number of VW Group parts, reappearing like old faces at a school reunion.
