SEAT offering two accessories packages for the new Ibiza and other models too. There's a Protection Pack for the winter and a Style Pack that introduces a little color-coding for the interior.

SEAT is slashing jobs and production as a result of the current global economic crisis but don't expect any mention of that in these press releases. There is only happy sappy holiday cheer here.

So the Christmas goodies are on offer for the new SEAT Ibiza and other models to give the car a little New Year's resolution makeover.

First, there's the cheapskate package, called the Protection Pack, which for 204.50 UK pounds you get mud flaps, front and rear, tailored carpet mats and a protective boot tray.

For 295.50 pounds there's the Style Pack. It includes chromed door mirror caps on the outside and for the interior there's gear knob covers, color-coded dashboard paneling, bespoke handbrake, and a two-meter long lead for connecting your iPod or other MP3 player.

SEAT is also offering, free of charge upon the purchase of either pack, a reflective vest and warning triangle. Because...they expect you to break down?

Well, maybe all this small stuff is an indication of the economic recession taking place after all.
