SEAT Ibiza hatchback

The SEAT Ibiza is a small family hatchback that competes with the likes of the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo, as well as the latest models from Korea – the Kia Rio and the Hyundai i20.

SEAT is owned by parent-company Volkswagen, and the car uses many of VW's parts, which are then hidden in a new-look body. The Ibiza can also be had as the practical SEAT Ibiza ST Estate and the SEAT Ibiza SC three-door hatchback.

The range starts with the basic SEAT Ibiza E trim level and goes up to the top-of-the-range, and very quick, SEAT Ibiza Cupra. It gets an eye-catching body kit and big alloy wheels.

Customers can choose from a variety of petrol engines that range in power from the basic 1.2-litre engine fitted to the SEAT Ibiza E to the 1.4-litre turbocharged version in the SEAT Ibiza Cupra, which has 180bhp and is the same one that is fitted to the Volkswagen Polo GTI. There's a choice of 1.2-litre, 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesels too.
