Seat Ibiza 2017 will go on sale in the Uk with prices starting at just £13,130.
The Spanish car manufacturer has completely redesigned the supermini from top to bottom, giving the car a fresh new look, power options and features.
“Ibiza is an iconic model for SEAT, a best-seller that’s been at the heart of our line-up for more than 30 years,” said Richard Harrison, Director, SEAT UK.
“With that kind of heritage, you can be sure the new model will be a benchmark car, taking SEAT quality, design, engineering and technology to an even higher level.”

More energy efficient engines have been made available to the updated Ibiza range too.
The first option is the three-cylinder 1.0 TSI with 95 or 115PS, along with a turbo-compressor, intercooler and direct injection.
A new EVO 1.5 TSI unit will also be available in late 2017 with four cylinders and 150PS.
