Seat Ibiza

The new Seat bursts onto the scene of energy and youthful dynamism, but to its origins. It’s an innovative whose precision quality, and new Arrow Design concept perfectly with high of safety and comfort. The car shows how the new platform developed by the VW Group for segment adapts to the Spanish newcomer.

To be produced exclusively in the facilities, the most modern have been applied on the new Seat Ibiza in all the manufacturing resulting in a development time by 14 months compared to the previous Ibiza and featuring the use of virtual in the initial stage, instead of the physical models.

The most result of this has not only reduced lead times and expenses, but the enhancement of one of the values Seat applies to all its models, quality, which has reached its level on the new Seat Ibiza.

special attention to detail, on the exterior as well as the interior of the several elements can be found on the new Ibiza that have crafted with exquisite for example the detailing on the dashboard, the panel, the new ventilation nozzles or the console, where the newly radio includes a Bluetooth that can be activated via controls on the column.

Externally, the new Arrow concept makes a bold where the headlights and radiator lower positioning provide a more forceful silhouette. qualities are also present in the Dynamic Line that an impressive sweep across the of the car. The robust rear and attractive wheel arches the design of the new Seat Ibiza, the production model created by Design Director Luc Donckerwolke.

Seat Ibiza

The novel used on the new Seat Ibiza the car’s wheelbase by 7 mm and widens the 30 mm more at the front and 33 mm more on the This has led to modifications to the steering front sub-chassis, stabiliser lower transversal arms and the that attach to the body.

The greater distance between the and greater diameter wheels also contributed to the significant of the characteristic Agile Chassis which affects the performance of steering and brakes.

All of these provide the new Seat model enhanced dynamic qualities, driving comfort, more and more practicality. Besides, an 8% in boot space makes it the leaders in its segment, with a capacity of 292 litres (25 more the previous Ibiza.)


The new Seat Ibiza features environmental friendliness – it can be fully recycled and its CO2 emissions been lowered across the All Diesel engine emissions are below 120 g/km, while on the versions the figure is below 160 g

A lot of time has also been to safety, with demanding simulations, real crash and more than two million of gruelling road tests. The of a standard head-thorax airbag passenger safety on the new Seat and pedestrian safety has been with a newly-designed bonnet and bumper.

Furthermore, the new Ibiza standard ESP electronic stability in markets such as Spain and as well as Hill Hold which maintains the vehicle on slopes for two seconds between the brake pedal and accelerating. A cornering light function on the fog is also available, which visibility when turning or at speeds lower than 40

Other important new features well worth mentioning are the Bi-xenon headlamps with AFS Frontlighting System), rear sensors, a radio-integrated Bluetooth or the pre-installation in the middle of the dashboard of a dock to connect a portable system.

Although the initial engine features three petrol (70 hp 1.2; 85 hp 1.4 and 105 hp 1.6) and one Diesel with the DPF particulate filter hp 1.9 TDI), the range will expand to include the 80 hp 1.4 TDI and 90 hp 1.9 TDI. All the are mated to a five-speed manual The new Seat Ibiza will be with three trim – Reference, Stylance and with an outstanding standard level even from the model.

Exterior Design

The ground-breaking design of the new Seat stems from a new design The car’s imposing sportiness is by its Arrow Design, which to simpler, more defined lines that create balance and aesthetic continuity.

The end looks much more due to the positioning of the captivating eye-shaped and the radiator grille. Both have been lowered, an arrowhead design which is of the new car.

In the design concept of the new Ibiza, Seat Design Luc Donckerwolke underlines that is greater tension on the car’s surface treatment, with concavities that create colour shades. He recognises on the new body there are more nuances and more obvious

There is a highly important new in the design of the Ibiza that the car’s sporty nature the distinct shoulder line rises over the rear arch to convey more to the rear of the vehicle. The robust stand out visually over the wheel arches.

The Dynamic that personalises the silhouette of current model range special significance to the new Seat Compared to the others, this one is a line that begins at the on the side of the body and the rear creating a perfect visual with the line of the boot, and with the line that lengthwise from the front end the doors and downward to finish in the of the rear wheel arch.

According to Luc Donckerwolke, this Line is different and lends balance to the car’s volumes.

the sporty looks and clearly image surrounding the new Seat are emphasised by the door mirrors beneath the base of the windows and the air intake underneath the bumper.


The philosophy applied to the of the interior is based on facing all the toward the driver to create a atmosphere to match the car’s At the same time, the shape of the lets in enough light to set the mood, creating a perfect in the passenger compartment between and design.

The interior dimensions are resulting in greater roominess and The first thing that your attention is the sporty position, which has been by 22 mm compared to the previous model. Now is a distance of 986 mm (20 mm more) to the ceiling for the driver and passenger, and 60 mm (16 mm more) the head to the area where the and the doors meet.

Since the is 99 mm longer, the boot capacity is 292 (25 litres greater than on the Ibiza. On selected versions, the lining includes a storage net for objects, and a recess with a to hold the light bulb Surrounding the lock there is a recess and restraints for the emergency and there are four further anchoring rings to attach a net.

The newly designed, dashboard features a driver-oriented panel with two large dials for easy visual

Some areas on the dashboard are to the touch. They are located from the windscreen and feature a colour range, including shades. There are also a lot painted components compared to the model, including metallic

The new circular air nozzles guarantee an air flow direction for greater compartment comfort.

Safety on the new Seat Ibiza have carefully studied since the of the project. Its uniform structure of and profiles meets the established after simulations and real of achieving a balanced deformation of its This prevents passenger with structural elements could cause injuries in the of a rollover.

The new Seat Ibiza two airbag setups – one which includes side airbags and two front airbags; and equipment which includes thorax-pelvis airbags and head

The safety concept has been enhanced on the new generation Seat One key area is the development of a new driver module, focusing efforts on the airbag’s performance under temperature conditions. Results are a reduction and less complexity on the previous model.

Since the area on the lining is seamless and to the eye, also the looks of the has improved in case of the passenger

The new Seat Ibiza also a fasten seatbelt warning for the front seats, and Isofix points for the rear seats, two child seats to be securely A complementary accessory is the possibility of a third anchoring point Top Tether, which prevents the seat from rotating in the of a crash.

Active safety on the new Seat Ibiza include TCS and ESP with EBA and tyre pressure

Demanding crash tests

tests were used in the programme of the new Seat Ibiza at an speed of 64 km/h, instead of the 56 km/h. Another area of and passive safety examined was the systems.

Rear crash were even more with a speed of impact of 50 instead of 38 km/h, while the of the impact beam was also

High resistance steel was on the side protection bars of the and at waist height, which to protecting passengers in the event of a impact.

The wholly new steering is more ergonomic, weighs performs better in case of and is more rigid, increasing the of comfort and quality. The total is one kg less than on the former This has been achieved design improvements and the addition of support on the transversal beam.

The column ergonomics have generally improved by placing the lever that adjusts its on the side, rather than providing an important 9 mm more for the driver’s knees in the event of a

Increased pedestrian safety

protection is one area of safety has been particularly closely on the new Seat Ibiza. The two zones on the car are more prone to cause to a pedestrian’s head and lower are the bonnet and the bumper.

The bonnet two areas of maximum energy where the risk of causing injuries is the greatest. On the whole, the distance between the bumper and its but no distance between the bumper and its support both contribute to the legs in the event of collision. The guarantees that the knee impact and at the same time forward and reduces its acceleration.

The implies that the resulting is very rigid (the beneath the bumper) and not prone to so a leg impact prevents the shinbone advancing.

The combination of both causes reduced angles to the femur/shinbone, much less 15 degrees, which implies a pedestrian’s legs are better

The Seat Ibiza has been put more than two million of endurance tests, and the resulting has been analysed at the Martorell Centre as the basis for introducing to the new model during its development.

Although the engine line-up on the new Ibiza will gradually the initial offer includes different versions – petrol and one Diesel. Each one is to a five-speed manual gearbox and the strict EU4 emission guidelines.

The 1.2 litre petrol engine has a cylinder block, a cylinder with four valves per and multi-point fuel injection. It 70 hp (51 kW) and its maximum engine torque is 112 Nm at rpm, giving it exceptional consumption and performance levels. fuel consumption is 5.9 litres per 100 km and CO2 are listed at 139 g/km.

The intermediate 1.4 petrol engine has four a cylinder head with 16 and multi-point fuel injection. It 85 hp (63 kW) and its maximum engine torque is 132 Nm at rpm. As with the smallest this one strikes a perfect between performance, consumption and

Average fuel consumption is 6.2 per 100 km and CO2 emissions are listed at 149 g/km.

The powerful, four cylinder 1.6 petrol engine also has 16 and multi-point fuel injection. It 105 hp (77kW) and 153 Nm of engine torque at rpm. Despite its higher fuel consumption is still at 6.6 litres, and CO2 emissions fall 160 g at 157 g/km.

The only Diesel available for the moment is the 1.9 litre cylinder TDI equipped with a fuel pump-injection system with an Intercooler turbo. It 105 hp (77 kW) and delivers a maximum torque of 240 Nm at rpm. It features a DPF particulate and consumes 4.5 litres on average for 100 km, and maintains CO2 emissions at 119 g/km.

additions to the Diesel range include the 80 hp 1.4 TDI and the 90 hp 1.9 TDI, both with the DPF particulate filter.
