The Past

on the sidewalls review SEAT Ibiza ST FR

You join us at a tricky moment. Our forehead’s sweat seeping out one molecule at a  Our right ankle’s like Michael J Fox in a Mannheim war.

Our eyes are piercing and time. The last time we a mental frenzy like was 30 seconds before a fight in a

But we’re not fighting. In fact, not moving. We’re very not moving. We’re in Worcestershire, trying to join the A435 from Tanners Green

Up until now we’d been on reasonably well with face-lifted Ibiza FR. It looks like an MS handbag than the VW with which it shares its It also WON’T lead to believe that you’re a stash of Tena Lady in the – and you can’t say THAT about its brother from the Veedub the Skoda Fabia. Oh, and this version’s estate rear end is so well that it might you 4 full days to realise an estate.

Spotted it already? Just us

But here’s the catch. This car has an FR badge on it, which means the contains a 148bhp, 1.4 litre petrol engine and a DSG gearbox. combining these two things all sorts of bad mechanical alchemy.

call it badchemy.

Let’s about throttle response. If travelling at a speed the engine appropriate, and you’re in a gear the transmission finds agreeable, a reasonable chance of being forward within a second or two of such a thing to the accelerator. if the box and motor have a disagreement their leisurely exchange, put you on hold indefinitely.

It’s like the bad old days of lag in auto-boxed turbo-diesels. You may as well Greensleeves and put a brew on.

Which is a Because if you change gear CONCENTRATE on what the engine’s up to and what gear the transmission fancy a few yards down the the Ibiza FR can shuffle along well. But can most people be with that, most of the

Doubt it. They shouldn#8217;t to in a car they#8217;ve paid £18k

The quick shuffle is exactly has led us to the end of Tanners Green Lane, Betty Swollocks is paying us a We’re suffering the most symptom of the badchemy created engine and transmission. Traction.

Or lack thereof.

Like cars with DSG boxes, the FR isn’t a fan of quick getaways. But it is keen on axle tramp and to blow the bulb in its ESP light. It like this… you press the and very little happens the engine hasn’t got the memo So you press it harder. Then the finally receives the memo, via messenger pigeon, thus into action and immediately one of the front wheels to get flustered and traction.

Obviously the ESP won’t for any such ruffianism, so it cuts the immediately. At this point, doing 4mph with the brain assuming the road is so that the wheels can’t deal with more 20% of the engine’s power without themselves.

The 178bhp version of this like what you get in Polo Ibiza Cupras and Fabia vRS as peaky or laggy, has an easier-to-modulte and#8230; is better. In the FR, you quickly to never attempt quick at all. Which, when trying to join a damp without any slip-road run-up, is frustrating.

And so, we’ll leave you to get on because we’ve given up on the of riding on the A435 (North). doing a three-point turn, back the long way and acting as in a counselling session between two pieces of engineering.
