SEAT today unveiled the new facelifted family of the Ibiza, including three and five-door hatchbacks, and the ST estate.
The new SEAT Ibiza features a more dramatic – or as SEAT says more emotional – design with a more pronounced trapezoidal grille, featuring the SEAT logo, new honeycomb structure of the grille and the lower air intake. The bumpers front and rear have also been redesigned to look more like the one the sporty FR version. It also gets optional large fog lamps with integrated cornering light.
The main highlight however is the new design headlights. They are available in two halogen versions or with optional bi-xenon lamps and LED daytime running lights.
Inside the cabin, besides the improved quality of used materials, highlights include the new design of the Climatronic climate control system and new instrument binnacle. It also comes with a large 10.7 liter glove box.
The 2013 SEAT Ibiza will be available with a range of petrol and diesel engines, including two 60 and 105 PS versions of a 1.2 liter, and the potent 1.4 TSI with supercharger and turbocharger. Diesel units include a extremely economical 1.2 liter with fuel consumption of just 3.4 liter/100km, and a 2.0 liter with 143 PS.
Alongside five- and six-speed manual gearboxes, a number of engines are offered with DSG transmissions either as standard equipment or as an option. Models with 100 PS or more also get an XDS electronic differential lock.
Equipments and features depend on the market, but the base models wont’ get air condition as standard. Pricing is yet to be announced.
