Seat Ibiza FR 1.5 TSI DSG. An example of a city car


I love how the Seat Ibiza 2021 does the new to the old. When we look at the top of the dashboard, we are in one of the most modern cars in the class. In front of our eyes we have a virtual clock, personalized with interesting views, and in the middle a large screen of the multimedia system is proud (it can be about 9.2 inches) with attractive and colorful graphics. With many beautiful screens in the menu and, of course, support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

New seat Ibiza – interior

However, when we look at it, the Ibiza still has one foot in the old, and perhaps the best (and certainly the best), school of interior design. There are few physical buttons and switches left on the deck. They are used for climate control, parking sensors, and we can sense StartStop or we select the driving mode. The only thing missing is the dial, so all the most important functions of the new Ibiza are controlled by buttons. We always put a plus on this. The simple and clear design of the front part of the cabin is also an increase in ergonomics and practicality. There is a large compartment for phones and small items (an optional induction charger can be installed in it as an option), two cup holders, plenty of storage space under the elbow and spacious door pockets.

On the side of finishing materialsThe seat is respectable. Most of the material is hard, but well packed. It has access to USB connectors in a modern way. You must get a new cable (type C) or adapter.

An interesting feature is the mood lighting and illuminated air vents. Something small, but it makes me happy. Ibiz can also be worn Beats beautiful sound.

The new Ibiza seat – dimensions, luggage compartment

Lifting will not change anything in this regard. The dimensions are also the same. The Ibiza is 406 cm long, 178 cm wide and 144.5 cm tall. The 256.4 cm wheelbase makes for a surprisingly spacious rear bench (which is finally part B). Additionally, the Little Kit can show off and a luggage compartment of 355 liters. 1100 liters with the rear seat folded down. When it comes to versatility and practicality, VAG’s three-piece is among the top performers in the segment.

You can already see it in the picture. The armchair is placed under me (180 cm).

New Seat Ibiza – engine and price

The tested Ibiza is the top proposition in the range – the 1.5 TSI engine with 150 HP is only available from the DSG gearbox and the top-of-the-range FR sports version. According to the latest price list on the manufacturer’s website, it costs 99 300 and. Most drivers, however, will go for the three-cylinder 1.0 TSI engine. In our opinion, the best option is the more powerful version, but it is currently only available with a manual gearbox in the FR version, which clearly increases the price.

  • 1.0 TSI 95 KM, 5MT – 74 300 and (Style), 84 100z (FR)
  • 1.0 TSI 110 HP, 6MT – 86,000 z (FR only)
  • 1.0 TSI 110 hp, DSG – 81 600 and (Style), 92 300 and (FR)

The Polish offer also includes an MPI 1.0 unit with a capacity of 80 HP. It is only paired with a five-speed manual and is offered in the base Reference version. It costs 64 300 and.

The new Ibiza seat – a driving experience

Ibiza drivers have never complained about the driving characteristics. The builders have worked hard on the suspension, so we can be tempted to compare it with the Fiest, considered one of the best cars in segment B. The suspension system is firm and allows you to feel the car’s capabilities well. On uneven roads, the Seat is stable, although the 17-inch rims with low-profile tires are a comfortable drag. Especially on transverse obstacles, which can make a little nervous. So if you are considering this car, choose “16”. Steering is another strong point. It accurately displays the current steering position and apparent resistance. If necessary, we have several driving modes: Comfort, Neutral, Sport and Eco Individual settings affect the power assistance and the response of the accelerator pedal Very important, the Ibiz is well silenced At highway speeds, the cabin is quiet and it faces a side bang.

The 150 hp engine is no problem for such a small car, and the Ibiza, especially in Sport mode, sometimes acts like a hot hatch. 8.2 seconds to a top speed of one hundred and 216 km / h is an excellent number. What about fuel consumption? These are some of the results of my test. Really pretty good in my opinion.

The new Ibiza without the 1.5 TSI engine has the same advantage

I eat Ibiz several times before lifting. And this doesn’t make any big changes. The exterior of the car has been updated, the interior has been updated, and a few new items have been added to the inventory, but it’s the same Ibiza. This means that the 1.5 TSI version, which costs around 100,000, is a recommendation for very demanding drivers.

In most cases, the TSI 1.0 unit is enough, which works more than well in an urban hatchback. In the 110 horsepower version, you will only complain about the possible lack of power in a heavily loaded car or when driving on hilly mountain roads. To the city in a small car? You don’t need more.

Moto.pl review: Seat Ibiza FR 1.5 TSI DSG – overview.

I never hide that as the owner of the indestructible Peugeot 206 in segment B, the closest to me is the 208, but the Ibiza, in fact, seems to me a more complete car. It’s not attractive and driver-oriented in front of the cabin, but the rear bench and cavernous luggage compartment make up for it. The version we tested also confirms that in terms of equipment and available assistance and safety systems, the Ibiza comes from the B segment and wants to chew up compacts. Nor should anyone complain about improper driving behavior or behavior. Although I would recommend a small ring k.

I am a fan of city car editing and I drive probably all the cars that have come to Poland in recent years. The Ibiza is one of the models I would recommend to anyone looking for a car of this size. Personally, I love it from my German-Czech relatives. This is one of the model hatchbacks. Unless you’re allergic to VAG groupsets, it’s worth checking out Seat’s offerings. It doesn’t have to be as high as in the picture.

The Ibiza doesn’t need much to be a decent city car. And this will positively affect its prices.
