The Top Gear car review: Seat Ibiza
Running costs and reliability
Aware that its audience is young, Seat is working on helpful lease and insurance packages that will ease the Ibiza into the hands of inexperienced and capital-starved drivers. But, as we’re still four months ahead of UK launch, we don’t have details.
The list prices are in any case pretty attractive, especially for the SE Technology trim and above, as that rolls in the big screen and navigation. Beyond that, the range splits into Xcellence (luxury-ish) and FR (sporty-ish).
The 1.0 engine hovers around 110g/km depending on power output, equating to 60-odd mpg on the official test. Insurance numbers aren’t in as we write this, but city-safety braking on all models should suppress the premiums as well as raise the NCAP score.
Warranty is three years, 60,000 miles.
