Seat Ibiza 5-Door
From Seat press: To date, Ibiza is the SEAT brand’s best-selling car in the UK and worldwide. Chief rivals include Renault Clio, Peugeot 207, Vauxhall Corsa, Ford Fiesta, Fiat Grande Punto, Toyota Yaris, Citroën C3 and MINI
Although the engine line-up for the new SEAT Ibiza SC will gradually increase, the initial offering comprises three petrol versions. Each one is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and easily meets the strict EU4 emission standards. Additionally, the 1.6 can be ordered with SEAT’s new seven-speed DSG system, offering both full automatic and sequential manual functionality.
The entry-level 1.2-litre has a three cylinder block, four valves per cylinder and multi-point fuel injection. It develops 70 PS at 5,400 rpm and maximum engine torque is 112 Nm at 3,000 rpm, giving it exceptional fuel consumption and performance for its size. Average fuel consumption is 47.8 mpg and CO2 emissions are listed at 139 g/km.
Sure to be popular and predicted, in fact, to be the best-seller, the 1.4-litre petrol engine has four cylinders, a 16V cylinder head and multi-point fuel injection. It delivers 85 PS at 5,000 rpm and its maximum engine torque is 132 Nm at 3,800 rpm. As with the smallest engine, this unit strikes a great balance between performance, consumption and emissions. Average fuel consumption is 45.5 mpg and official CO2 emissions are put at 149 g/km.
The most powerful, all-new, four cylinder 1.6-litre petrol engine also boasts a 16V head and multi-point fuel injection. It generates a meaty 105 PS at 5,600 rpm, and the torque peak of fully 153 Nm is available at 3,800 rpm. Despite its higher performance, fuel consumption is still contained: the 1.6 is good for 42.8 mpg on the combined cycle while CO2 emissions are 157 g/km.
