Seat released pricing and specs of the UK-bound Ibiza ST, as the car prepares to hit the showroom floors across the Kingdom. The ST, which is the third member of Ibiza’s family including the SC and 5dr, is supposed to be the an all-rounder version of the car, offering economy, practicality and bit of sportiness, all in a nice package which is reasonably priced at £12,070.
You can order the Ibiza ST with either a 75 PS 1.2-litre TDI CR – also available in the Ecomotive version – or a 1.6-litre TDI CR with 105 PS, or an EUV-compliant 1.4 liter. There is also a sporty 1.2 TSI model with DSG-auto gearbox, which does 0-62 mph in 10.1 seconds and has a top speed 118 mph.
The car has a boot space of 430 litres, which is expendable thanks to Split folding rear sears with a 60/40 bias. It also features sleek roof rails in either black or chrome finish, a carefully designed low load height and wide rear hatch, a flat boot floor and innovative storage options throughout the ST’s smart interior enable it to work with effortless efficiency.
The standard kit you receive with any version of the Ibiza ST includes air conditioning; four-speaker stereo radio with MP3-compatible CD and AUX-in; steering column-mounted audio controls; electric front windows; roof rails; speed sensitive electro-hydraulic power steering; volumetric alarm and remote central locking with deadlocks.
All versions feature head and chest airbags for both driver and front seat passenger, head-thorax front side airbags, front passenger airbag disconnection, ABS and three three-point rear seatbelts. Optionally available, depending on engine and spec choices, are other features such as SEAT’s clever electronic XDS system – which mimics the function of a conventional limited slip differential – and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP).
Seat Ibiza ST’s pricing starts from £12,070 RRP for the entry-level 1.4-litre 16V S A/C and goes up to £14,910 for the Ibiza ST 1.2 TDI CR Ecomotive in SE spec.2010 Seat Ibiza ST Pricing and Options,
