JE Design Seat Ibiza
JE DESIGN gives the Seat Ibiza (model 6J) an air of sporty self-confidence. The car tuner from the town of Leingarten in Baden-Württemberg has made improvements to all versions of the Spanish car with its new aerodynamics package, filigree alloy wheels and stylish interior.
As usual, the new aerokit displays the two JE DESIGN hallmarks: design and quality. The bodykit elements don't just give the Seat Ibiza a sporty appearance; they're also distinguished by their first-class workmanship and perfect fit. Using high-quality ABS or composite materials, JE DESIGN manufactures the CNC-milled attachments to OEM standards. The fact that the tuned cars have passed the pedestrian protection test is further evidence of the high quality standards.
The racy look of the JE DESIGN Ibiza is due largely to its new front. The front apron with the sports radiator grille (without the Seat logo), frame the car's striking LED daytime running lights, each with six light emitting diodes at each side. The cleaning system for the headlamps retains its full functionality. In addition, the headlamp covers give the Seat that menacing appearance. The curved side skirts and the rear apron attachment complete the car's aerodynamics package, the components of which can also be fitted individually. The body parts can be purchased for all Seat Ibiza versions, in other words for the 3-door, 5-door and Estate ST models as well as for the sports versions, the FR and the Cupra.
In keeping with the car's sporty appearance, the suspension lowering springs lower the Ibiza by around 35 millimeters, giving the Multispoke alloy wheels a particularly dynamic looking edge. The complete wheel sets are available from JE DESIGN either in size 7 x 17 inches ET 35 with sports tires of size 215/40 or in size 7.5 x 18 inches ET 35 with tires of size 215/35. The wheels' surface comes in either Shadow Silver or in Matte Black with silver wheel rims.
The car's sporty transformation by JE DESIGN is not just about appearances though. The power of the 1.6 TDI CR engine for example is boosted from 105 hp (77 kW) to 121 hp (89 kW). This is made possible by the additional electronics box, which is connected by way of a plug-and-play system and reduces the time taken for the car to go from 0 to 100 km/h from 10.9 to 10.2 seconds. With torque of 282 instead of 250 Newton metres, the JE DESIGN tuned Seat Ibiza can attain a maximum speed of 194 km/h (compared with 188 km/h in the standard models).
The car's interior is first rate too. The Elegance leather upholstery rarefies the Ibiza's interior with its exclusive luxury. The steering wheel, the gear lever and the handbrake sleeve are also covered with fine rawhide. The color of the stitching and of the leather can be chosen by the customer at no extra charge from JE DESIGN. If desired, JE DESIGN can even add an individualized, stitched on logo to the backrests of the front seats. The Ibiza can be made really comfortable with the two-level heating system for the seats, the electrically adjustable lumbar support system for backache-free driving and the massage system with its 12 different programmes.
And thus the Seat Ibiza is transformed into an individualized sports car with a self-confident look, dynamic driving characteristics and a luxurious interior. Needless to day, JE DESIGN provides all the components in question together with their accompanying certificates, so that you can register all the modifications made.
