For The Seat Ibiza ST is a spacious, attractive estate and will no doubt appeal to people who don’t like small, boxy MPVs.

Against The interior is rather utilitarian and there are some weak engines in the line-up.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The attraction of Seat’s little wagon centres on its good looks, keen pricing, low running costs, a decent amount of safety kit and relatively generous specifications. Haggle hard and you can also expect to get a big reduction from the list prices.

You'd be well advised to avoid the entry 84bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine and thrummy 1.2-litre three-cylinder diesel; the 1.2 turbo petrol and 1.6 diesel are better bets. Although the car's handling is perfectly safe and predictable, the ST is not what you’d call the last word in fun.

The ST makes up for this to an extent with a generous equipment list (even the entry-level S A/C trim has air-con, electric front windows, central locking and a CD player), and safety features including twin front and side airbags. The car scored a maximum five stars from Euro NCAP for crash protection.
