In recent years, Seat has become very easy for a positive review of any of its products. The new Ibiza that has just started his business career is no exception, and though not as prominent as it could be stylistically 3rd generation -dibujada by Walter De Silva, highlighted by a perfectly combine sober but tasteful design, with excellent interior roominess approaching a car C compact segment.

At New Seat Ibiza, the most significant gain in the space for the legs of the occupants of the rear seats -72 cm- and in the height in the rear seats -94 cm-, weak points of the projection model. the capacity trunk does not reach the 350 officers liters promised by the mark, the same, incidentally, that measure the outgoing generation, although its 330 liters They are, together with the Renault Clio, and with the exception of Skoda Fabia, of the best in the category. I had something to lose if we consider that the exterior length is virtually identical, providing the new Ibiza from relationship between trunk and cabin right one. As for the interior width it is of greater just as height, although it is true that the door panels are thinner and feel of perceived quality is lower with excess hard plastic with no license materials garrisoned higher quality.

This version of the Seat Ibiza is powered by tricilíndrico propellant -gasolina- 999 cm3 and 115 hp, a slight gain -before 110 hp- it does not translate into better performance despite maintaining a weight -only 1.135 kg- and similar developments the previous Ibiza. This decline is due to the increased interference of traction control and the torque remains unchanged. Overall it is a solvent propellant for the needs of most drivers that, without the refinement of a 4-cylinder, makes us forget this fact with immediate delivery of torque below 2,000 rpm and ripped it does not require unnecessarily abusing clutch as in some engines of their rivals. He consumption obtained our tour highway It stands at 5,2 l / 100 km and in 6,2 l / 100 km in urban use, almost record and below rivals like the Renault Clio and Peugeot 208 with such power level.

By behavior, without detracting from the last two generations that were already remarkable, the fact is that the New Seat Ibiza wins aplomb Y steering precision, with a facility to support changes to the Seat Leon slashing basic outline finish and rear suspension torsion beam wheel spin. Again, the Ibiza It has all the ingredients to become sales leader.
