Station wagon Seat Ibiza for the first time was presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in 2010 as part of the 4th generation. The car is built on the PQ25 platform, the same which was used for the German Volkswagen Polo and Audi A1. Two years later there was a restyling of the model, resulting in the appearance of FR model in a line together with ST. Seat Ibiza Review reveals the characteristics and features of this wagon vehicle.
Restyling allowed increasing the dimensions of the car, which became longer by 184 mm (4236 mm versus 4052). The width and height remained the same: in 1693 and 1445 mm. ST is compact and its dimensions are similar to the 5-door hatchback. But unlike it, ST has a spacious luggage compartment of 430 liters (but inferior to similar class models Renault Clio and Skoda Fabia), which may be increased by the unfolded rear seats to 1200 liters.
The car was presented at once with two new engines of 1.2 liters: petrol (105 hp) and diesel (75 hp). Apart from them station wagon Seat Ibiza comes to the European market with engines of 1.4 and 1.6 liters. Like the hatchback, it is equipped with two types of transmissions: manual and robotic. Buyers are offered 5-speed manual or 7-speed robotized transmission. All versions are front-wheel drive station wagon.
Productivity and Drive
The car is economical enough. The engine with 1197 cubic cm is considered the most profitable. The version with manual transmission consumes 6.8 liters of gasoline in the city and 4.5 on the highway. Robot “eats” 7l and 4.4l respectively. Speed limit for wagon is 190 km / h, which is gained by the weakest engine - 1.2 liters, equipped with a 7-speed robot. The suspension is similar to hatchback - MacPherson front and multi-link rear which are perfectly balanced for the fast and comfortable ride.
Seat Ibiza wagon is available in three trim levels: FR, Reference and Style. All of them are equipped with power steering, heated front seats, anti-lock braking system ABS, tinted side windows, and cloth decorated seats. Each version is equipped with an onboard computer, the data from which is displayed on the panel on right side from the steering wheel. All modifications have sports driver's seat.
Version Style offers cruise control, heated outside mirrors, adjustable climate control and audio system with 6 speakers, volume control on the steering wheel. As an option, you can set a panoramic electric sunroof, tire pressure monitoring system, rain sensor and rear parking sensors.
The front seats are designed for tall people, even people with the height of 190 cm will be comfortable to sit there. For rear passengers wagon Seat Ibiza provides much less comfort. Man with a 180 cm tall will feel constrained, resting his head on the ceiling and feet in the front seat. Vehicle design is carefully thought out and is on a par with the same Volkswagen models. But also has shortcomings, such as hard plastic in the design and dull gray-white palette of the interior, which, however, makes it easier to get used to the characteristics of the dashboard.
