Key Facts

Stylish yet unassuming, the Ibiza looks especially good cruising through town centres and quiet suburbs. You can trust what’s under the bonnet too; it shares more than just a parent company with the VW Polo.

Engine choice is what sets apart the Ibiza from its peers; 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6-litre petrol and 1.4, 1.6, 1.9 and 2.0-litre diesels are available. There are variants which come with three or four cylinders, depending on how much power you want behind the wheel.

Why buy a Seat Ibiza?

Despite its appearance, the Ibiza is good on fuel, with more recent models able to achieve over 60mpg. There’s plenty of on-board tech too, with even the basic models coming with air conditioning and trip computers.

It’s also one of the sportier cars of its breed. Putting out almost 180bhp with the top-of-the-range 1.4 TSI DSG-auto engine, it’s up there with the more expensive Audi A3s in terms of power. However, you can expect to pay a couple of thousand pounds less for the Seat on the used market.

Which Seat Ibiza is right for me?

Latest Range

For the speed demon: Seat Ibiza SE

For the speed demon: Seat Ibiza SE

The Ibiza SE is a little quicker than the base model SC, coming with around 15bhp more, while you can only expect to pay about £500 more on the used market. So, if you want considering stepping up from the SC, it doesn’t cost the world to do so.

The SE produces slightly more emissions however, which unfortunately drops it into tax band E, while the SC sits comfortably in band D.

Middle of the pack: Seat Ibiza Toca

Middle of the pack: Seat Ibiza Toca

Coming in at around the £8,000 mark on the used market, the Toca presents itself as a small step up from the cheaper trims. While it’s likely to come with the same 1.4 litre engine as the SE, you can expect to be treated to a few more bits of luxury both inside and out.

Even on the used market, the Toca usually crops up with air conditioning, Bluetooth and satnav installed. These additions make the Toca a good choice for longer journeys, as well as for day-to-day urban journeys.

A sporty look: Seat Ibiza FR

A sporty look: Seat Ibiza FR

The 1.4 TSI petrol engine on the FR comes with almost 140bhp, a cheap tax band and also the potential to achieve something in the region of 60mpg.

Edging towards the £10,000 mark on the used market, the FR Black is for those who really want to achieve the sporty look. Compared to the other sporty hot hatches on the market, you’ll find that the FR Black is a few thousand pounds cheaper than the likes of the Ford Fiesta ST, although the Ford puts out around 40bhp more.

What are the Alternatives?

The tried and tested option: Ford Fiesta

The tried and tested option: Ford Fiesta

One of the most popular cars on Britain’s roads, the Fiesta is well trusted and respected. You can expect to pay around the same amount for a used Ford Fiesta, but as the Ford is immensely popular, you’ll have bags more choice on the used market than if you’re looking at the Seat. Which means you’re more likely to find the perfect model for your needs.

A little more class: Citroen DS 3

A little more class: Citroen DS 3

Although it’s only available with three doors, the quirky DS 3 has a lot going for it; style and elegance, for starters. It can be quick, too; having more grunt than many associate with the Citroen badge.

There’s also a soft-top cabriolet version of the DS 3, which is great for driving around city centres at the height of summer. However, minor drawbacks include a lack of room in the back, which is purely down to all models being three-door.

Cheap to run: Renault Clio

A little more sedate than the Ibiza, the Clio makes up for it by being practical and super economical. The older models look slightly outmoded, but come in at much lower prices than their successors – used Clios can sell for less than £5,000.

For your money, you can expect a smooth ride, plenty of room in the back for young passengers and the weekly shop, as well as reliability.
