Which is disappointing, after through the brochure, full of of beautiful, tanned young grooving in the sunshine, clearly in with each other and their Seat Ibizas. spirit has always been the heart of the Seat Ibiza, the says. A car that fizzes fun while laying down serious performance.

Again, not feeling the fizz or the fun, not the serious performance. There’s of passion, exilaration (sic), a definite glint of mischief in its All of which has been achieved something called enjoyneering.

Annoyeering, more like. The range may be a step in the right in terms of not doing too much to the planet, but these copywriters are the English language.
