Most models in the latest Seat Ibiza range have been priced lower than the outgoing models. The new series will arrive at showrooms next month. For the first time, Seat offers the Ibiza ST in warm FR trim. This model will be available with a choice of 105PS 1.2 or 150PS 1.4-litre petrol engine. Seat will also offer a 105PS version of the VW Group’s 1.6 TDI and a 143PS 2.0 TDI.
The three-door Ibiza SC will have a starting price of £9,995 on the road. The five-door range has a starting price of £11,430 for the1.2 70PS S A/C model. The entry-level ST model has a price tag of £12,140. The core basic model of the range – the Ibiza S A/C – is £300 lower than the current S Copa edition on average.
The SE model, the replacement for the SE Copa, is lower by the same amount. The FR models are as much as £1100 lower than before. Just like before, the five-door variants have a £500 premium over the three-door SC. The ST models are priced £710 higher than the five-door. In addition, the Ibiza gets various model year revisions.
Its headlights have changed shape and have sculptural elements comparable to those used in the Alhambra and Exeo. The optional bi-xenon lights include LED daytime running lights. The front grille is smaller.
In addition, all models use the lower grille formerly reserved for FR and Cupra models. The rear lights have a new style and LED lighting has been added to the FR models. The key interior changes include a redesigned steering wheel, a new climate control console and a bigger glovebox.
