Car trim reviews

SEAT Ibiza Toca

There's only one engine available in the SEAT Ibiza Toca, but the long list of standard equipment should be enough to keep many buyers happy.

The SEAT Ibiza goes head-to-head with cars like the Ford Fiesta, VW Polo, Kia Rio and Hyundai i20. There are six trims available, the S, SE, Toca and FR, FR Edition and the Cupra.

The Ibiza Toca model is available in the three-door SC, conventional five-door hatchback and the practical ST estate – with one engine, the 84bhp 1.4-litre petrol.

Despite the engine's modest power output, it’s actually the thirstiest engine in the Ibiza range, returning only 47.9mpg. A better bet might be the 104bhp 1.2-litre TSI turbo petrol that not only provides for a more relaxing drive but can average 55.4mpg. However, you'll have to upgrade to the FR trim and miss out on the Toca's generous standard kit.

The SEAT Ibiza Toca comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, sat-nav, Bluetooth connectivity, air-conditioning, a leather gearshift lever, fog lamps, a trip computer, and anti-skid control.

Good points

The SEAT Ibiza Toca comes standard with all the equipment you’ll ever need in a supermini, apart from rear parking sensors to help you squeeze into those difficult spaces. The SEAT Ibiza is also fun to drive, good value for money, and what the engine lacks in power it makes up for in refinement.

Bad points

The 1.4-litre isn’t the best engine in the range and if you opt for the larger estate model, it will struggle with the extra weight. Other engines in the Ibiza range are both significantly more efficient or more powerful – or both. The Ibiza also isn’t as comfortable as some of its rivals like the Skoda Fabia, nor does it feel as expensive as a Volkswagen Polo.

What you get

  • Alloy wheels
  • Passenger & Driver airbag
  • Manual air conditioning
  • Sat nav
  • Bluetooth

Recommended optional extras

  • Metallic paint

Our choice

Unfortunately, there's only one engine available in the SEAT Ibiza Toca, and it's the thirsty 1.4-litre petrol. All is not lost, though, as the list of standard equipment is lengthy.
