ACURA Sport Car | Seat Ibiza


It’s proving to live a stellar yr for superminis – all-new kids on the block include the transformed Nissan Micra as well as latest version of the market-leading Ford Fiesta.
Now it’s Seat’s plough amongst the fifth-generation of the pop Ibiza. Originally launched inward 1984, it’s the Castilian brand’s best-selling model amongst to a greater extent than than 5.4 1000000 sold.
The novel auto is a meaning step-up from the outgoing model amongst to a greater extent than space, the latest tech as well as security features, addition a boost inward lineament as well as on-road dynamism.
Wider as well as really slightly shorter as well as lower, the novel Ibiza at nowadays bears to a greater extent than of a menage unit of measurement resemblance to the Leon, adjacent upward inward the range.

The fourth-generation Ibiza was cute, but a flake frumpy compared to its successor. Sharper, sportier styling combined amongst Seat’s signature LED triangular lights upward front, the newcomer has a to a greater extent than sophisticated look.
One of the nigh dramatic differences is within where it’s far to a greater extent than spacious thank y'all to an extra 87mm inward width as well as a longer wheelbase. The seats are 42mm wider, which Seat claims are best-in-class. Legroom inward the dorsum is increased past times 35mm, piece headroom is upward past times 24mm inward the front end as well as 17mm inward the back.
The Tardis flim-flam isn’t over because the kick has also grown 63 litres, bringing its total capacity to an impressive 355 litres – i time again best-in-class. Combined amongst a lower loading lip, this makes the Ibiza seriously spacious.
The attain of petrol as well as diesel fuel options available include a three-cylinder 1.0 TSI (95PS or 115PS), a novel four-cylinder 1.5 TSI 150PS (available inward belatedly 2017), addition a 1.6 TDI diesel fuel (80PS, 95PS as well as 115PS).

Gearbox options include 5 as well as six-speed manuals, addition a dual-clutch DSG 7-speed automatic gearbox.
Now solely available every bit a five-door, the Ibiza is offered inward 4 cut down specs, starting amongst S, followed past times SE, hence the sporty FR as well as top-of-the-range XCELLENCE.
Most impressively, every bit standard, all Ibizas offering Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) – known every bit Front Assist – addition Hill Hold Control, automatic lights, Multi-collision Brake, tyre pressure level monitoring organisation as well as daytime running lights. No wonder it was awarded a maximum 5 stars inward Euro NCAP crash tests.
Other options include Adaptive Cruise Control, wireless charging, interior ambient lighting, Keyless entry & Go, front end as well as parent parking sensors, a parent persuasion camera, addition an integrated 8-inch touchscreen amongst drinking glass panel.

Naturally, the Ibiza is also fully connected amongst Apple Car Play, Android Auto as well as Mirror Link access.
I tested the model that’s probable to live the nigh pop choice, the SE cut down amongst the 95ps 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine as well as five-speed gearbox.
Apart from its fashionable novel looks, measurement within as well as it’s instantly to a greater extent than spacious amongst plenty of room for adults front end as well as back.
With a straightforward nevertheless attractive driver-focused dashboard as well as a decent 5-inch color touchscreen, it’s simply the job.

Start her upward as well as it’s right away obvious that the novel Ibiza is really refined. There’s a subdued thrum from the three-cylinder engine, but nada to a greater extent than unless pressed hard.
The ride lineament is upward at that spot amongst the best inward its class, but the biggest surprise of all is that it feels planted on the route amongst well-controlled trunk roll, making it a truly engaging auto to drive.
Its punchy petty engine pushes it along at to a greater extent than than plenty speed for most, piece lite steering as well as expert visibility larn inward ideal for town too.
On a varied exam run nosotros got to 50mpg without likewise much trouble, which is first-class considering Seat claims it’s capable of 60.1mpg. The expert intelligence doesn’t destination at that spot because its CO2 emissions are a depression 106g/km.

Frankly, the novel Ibiza is all grown-up as well as difficult to fault, but no auto is perfect.
For instance, at that spot are no soft-touch plastics used inward the cabin hence it’s non just plush, piece due south as well as SE cut down models larn an FM/AM radio amongst DAB (a £145 option) solely measure for the FR as well as XCELLENCE. There’s also a flake of route dissonance over rougher surfaces.
That said, overall it’s an impressive packet that provides worthy opposition to its major rivals which also include the Vauxhall Corsa, Citroen C3 as well as Renault Clio.
