After experiencing a succession of generations, the Spanish Ibiza compact hatchback gained a more aggressive appearance, increased quite significantly by 87 mm in width compared to its predecessor, received a large 95 mm wheelbase and a wider front (plus 60 mm) and rear wheels (plus 48 mm ).

The new Seat Ibiza will enter the market in four versions, so let’s say the usual ones – Reference and Style, as well as aggressively sporting ones – FR (in a photo car in red) and XCellence. In this case, even the usual novelties look quite aggressive and bribe not only with similarity to the larger Seat Leon model, but also stylish design chips. In the form of a mass of charismatic ribs, prescribing the hood and sidewalls of the body at different levels, sporting mirrors on powerful legs, dome-shaped roof lines, sculpted sterns, neat headlamps (for top versions, full LED front optics as standard equipment) and LED parking lights Three-dimensional graphics.
Well, the modification of the FR is just an aggressor on the road: huge bumpers with bright aerodynamic elements, black decorative inserts, a pair of trapezoids of exhaust nozzles spaced on different sides of a powerful rear bumper, and, understandably, huge 18-inch wheels.

The width of the saloon increased by 42 mm, which allowed to install a wider and more comfortable first-row seats and a rear seat. The place above the head in the first row increased by 24 mm, and in the second by 17 mm. Most importantly, it is an increase in the rear legroom of 35 mm for passengers and, of course, increased by as much as 63 liters to 355 liters the useful volume of the luggage compartment.
Modern equipment and electronic systems mass: a new multifunctional steering wheel, a dashboard with a color screen of a trip computer, a multimedia complex with an 8-inch touchscreen (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Mirror Link, a rear-view camera with high resolution), a Beatsaudio 300 W, climate control, Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist, Keyless Entry System with engine start button, Traffic Jam Assist, front and rear parking sensors, 6 airbags, all-LED headlights and rear LED parking lights.
