Seat reveals revised Ibiza

Spanish supermini gets a mid-life makeover

Seat Ibiza

Seat will unveil its refreshed Ibiza at the Geneva motor show at the beginning of March.

But before you book your flight to Switzerland, the changes are small and subtle.

Twin headlights are now standard at the front, while the rear now features a mock diffuser for a more sporty look.

The rear 'Ibiza' badge has shifted to the centre of the tailgate, while 15in wheels become standard on base models. Ibiza models with more than 100bhp also gain more prominent exhaust pipes.

The sporty FR model gains 17in alloy wheels and honeycomb grilles behind its front air intakes.

Cupra models now have 158bhp for the diesel versions and 178bhp for the 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol car.

The revised Ibiza reaches the UK in April, and Seat will announce prices closer to the launch.

Now share it...
