Used SEAT Ibiza for sale
The SEAT Ibiza holds its own in a competitive supermini class thanks to its stylish design, spacious interior, and comfortable ride. Launched in 1984, the Ibiza is now in its fifth generation and has become one of the most iconic Spanish cars on offer.
The SEAT Ibiza sits below the popular Leon hatchback and the larger Ateca and Arona models within SEAT's range and offers a wide range of features such as:
- Generous amount of boot space
- Good amount of kit as standard
- Low running costs
- Well-equipped set of safety features
Read on below to discover what the Ibiza has to offer in more detail.
Engines and Driving Experience
The Ibiza range offers a refined and comfortable driving experience and is able to deal with bumps in the road in an effective manner. When under heavy acceleration, the popular 3-cylinder engine releases a pleasant growl, but when cruising the engine returns to its refined and quiet self.
A range of 1.0-litre petrol engines with varying amounts of horsepower are available within the different specifications. If you're looking for excitement, higher powered variants offer punchy 0 to 62mph times that are sure to put a smile on your face.
Lower powered variants are less popular, requiring a heavier right foot to get up to speed, but are still a viable option for getting around town in a stylish fashion.
The Ibiza also has a 1.6-litre TDI diesel variant on offer, but these are often harder to come by. Fuel economy is good across the various configurations, with even the most powerful engines offering upwards of 45mpg.
Practicality and Running Costs
As superminis go, the Ibiza is as practical as they come. The 355 litres of boot space places it at the higher end of the class without compromising the cabin space, whilst a 5-door setup as standard allows passengers to travel comfortably and provides easy access to the ISOFIX anchoring points in the rear of the car.
Getting insured should also be fairly inexpensive. The SE and SE Technology trims reside within insurance group three, whilst opting for any other trim sees this rise to groups nine to 13.
Overall, the Ibiza is a practical and inexpensive supermini. Service costs are low due to the small engine sizes and can be carried out at any Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Due to an extended wheelbase, the latest edition of the Ibiza has more legroom than previous generations. The sleek exterior look is matched within the interior, implementing a driver focused dashboard setup.
Features such as a 6.5-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) come as standard across the range, but many decide to go for the SE Technology trim level and above due to the added benefits such as an improved 8-inch touchscreen, satellite navigation, and cruise control.
In terms of safety, the Ibiza performs well. With a full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, a wide range of safety features are to thank such as:
- Tiredness recognition system
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Front and rear parking sensors
- Hill hold control
- Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC)
Is the SEAT Ibiza right for me?
If you're looking at SEATs we assume you're after a vehicle with a bit of that Spanish flair, right?
Whilst cheaper options such as the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa are more common, lower-spec'd versions can sometimes lack the character you're after.
Along with possessing this charisma, the Ibiza is a great small family car, offering plenty of room in the back for the kids and a high amount of boot space for its class. Alternatively, it is a suitable first car due to the low insurance group on certain trims.
However, if you're after something a bit more premium, the Audi A1 or Volkswagen Polo may be more suited.
