All-New SEAT Ibiza SE 1.0 review

The recently launched SEAT Ibiza has impressed the motor industry and customers alike since hitting showrooms. Named Auto Express ‘Best Supermini’ for 2017 and awarded the maximum 5* Euro NCAP rating for safety,  the SE 1.0 petrol version was recently reviewed by leading motoring publication Auto Express to see just what they thought.

Impressed by what the All-New SEAT Ibiza SE 1.0 had to offer Auto Express commented “We rated its peppy turbo engine highly, while its grown-up cabin, smart styling and engaging handling were plus points, too. It’s also loaded with tech, and offers plenty of space in the back for adults – making it feel more grown-up than many of its rivals”. They added “While lots of buyers will favour the more powerful 1.0 TSI, the entry-level car uses a non-turbo 74bhp MPI unit. It offers younger drivers cheaper insurance.”

In summing up Auto Express commented “If someone handed you the keys to an entry-level SEAT Ibiza, few would feel short-changed. It offers the same spacious cabin, responsive handling and sleek looks as its more powerful siblings, and around town it’s just as agile and easy to park.”
