Ten Second Review
SEAT's recently refreshed Ibiza makes good sense in entry-level 1.2-litre form. You still get the Ibiza's striking looks and sound build quality but the running costs will be low and the price is right. The car should prove perfectly at home one urban streets, if a little less so on the motorway.
A lot of emphasis is placed on performance in cars but how often do most of us actually push the engines in our vehicles to their limits? Certainly, chances to replicate the 0-60mph sprint times by which acceleration is judged are extremely rare and the oft-quoted top speed of almost all new cars is illegal in the UK anywhere outside the confines of a racetrack. In most instances, what we're really talking about when we mention performance is the strength of the engine and how fast the car feels in everyday driving conditions. Fast cars are more fun but not when you spend the majority of your time crawling along in traffic or on the narrow urban streets around your home. Then they can start to smack of expense and redundant capability. SEAT's Ibiza 1.2 in 70PS form is unapologetically not a quick car but it's likely to be all the supermini that many motorists need.
The 1.2-litre SEAT Ibiza takes a fairly leisurely 14 seconds to reach 62mph from a standing start and that is firmly at the slower end of the spectrum for modern cars. Accelerating from 50mph to 75mph takes nearly 18 seconds for the 70bhp 3-cylinder engine to achieve. These figures may make the step-up to the 85bhp 1.4-litre model look appealing but there's quite a premium attached and if your driving is mainly restricted to short trips around congested or urban areas, the benefits are likely to be negligible. The previous generation Ibiza's driving experience won praise from all quarters and this facelifted current generation car aims to continue that approach. With a wider track front and rear than the previous Ibiza designed to give extra stability on the road and a sharper feel to the handling generally, there can be few complaints about the way the current car tackles the twists, especially as SEAT has opted to keep the excellent electro-hydraulic power steering which, as most keen drivers will attest to, is a very good thing.
Design and Build
Despite the spruced up looks, the Ibiza continues to run on the Volkswagen Group's small car platform dubbed the 'agile chassis'. It comes in the basic five-door bodystyle and as a three-door 'Sports Coupe' which looks lower leaner and meaner with design cues more obviously lifted from the Bocanegra concept car. The five-door is 80mm longer than the previous generation Ibiza's 3,970m and much bigger inside while the 292-litres of boot space is very impressive for a supermini. The most recent design tweaks aren't radical but still manage to give the Ibiza an even sharper individualistic look. Whether you choose the Ibiza hatch, the SC three-door or the ST estate, you get a trapezoidal grille that's flatter and with a broad lower air intake to emphasise the cars width. The bumpers front and rear have been redesigned, with a look that is particularly accentuated on the sporty Ibiza FR version. The headlights are available in two halogen versions or with optional bi-xenon lamps and LED daytime running lights. The interior of the Ibiza is an upmarket affair with some nice trim finishes and good amounts of space front and rear. The sparky design of the outside isn't really carried over internally . One criticism that was levelled at the old Ibiza was that the cabin design didn''t match the extrovert feel of the exterior. That still holds true but SEAT has further improved the perception of quality. It's evident on the steering wheel, in the fresh design of the Climatronic climate control system and in the higher tone paint surfaces. The focus, however, remains on functionality - the instrument binnacle with its improved display is one example, the significantly larger glove compartment, another. With a generous storage volume of 10.7 litres, this compartment now offers space for a lot more than just the usual owners manual, your mobile charger and a bag of wine gums.
Market and Model
It's entry-level E or S trim for Ibiza 1.2-litre customers but that plays nicely to the engine's low cost strengths. Anyway, the S package still includes air-conditioning, a trip computer, electric heated mirrors, cruise control, electric windows, alloy wheels and front fog lights. There's also a height and reach adjustable steering wheel, a height adjustable driver's seat, the speed-sensitive power steering, remote central locking and a six-speaker CD stereo with MP3 compatibility. The amount of safety equipment is also far from stingy with twin front and side airbags and ABS brakes thrown in. All Ibizas have a five-speed manual gearbox as standard. The Ibiza features a number of other features more normally found in more upmarket vehicles. There's an optional Hill Hold Assist feature to prevent rollback during hill starts and buyers can specify front fog lights with a side illumination function to light the verge when cornering. All models including the S derivatives get combined auxiliary and USB connectivity so that you can plug in an iPod, a Zune, a Walkman or whatever kind of music player or data storage facility you own.
Cost of Ownership
The 1.2-litre Ibiza does ask its owners to make sacrifices with regard to performance but it pays them back handsomely with its low running costs. The 52.3mpg average fuel economy and 125g/km emissions won't match the diesel engines but the lower purchase price of the 1.2 will still make it the most cost effective choice for those covering low annual mileages. All Ibizas are accompanied by a 3-year/60,000-mile warranty and twelve years of anti-perforation cover which reflects SEAT's confidence of victory in the battle against rust. Major servicing is required at 20,000-mile intervals and a dose of fresh oil every 10,000 miles or 12 months.
