Seat's special Ibizas

Seat has launched two special-edition Ibizas, called the Freerider and Sportrider.

The three-door Freerider costs 8995 and is powered by a 69bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine. It averages 47.2mpg and emits 139g/km of carbon dioxide.

Equipment includes cruise and climate control, 15-inch alloy wheels and front foglights.

The three-door Sportrider is available with a 99bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine or a 99bhp 1.9-litre diesel. The petrol manages 42.8mpg and emits 154g/km of CO2, while the diesel achieves 55.4mph and emits 132g/km of CO2.

Cruise and climate control are standard, as are 16-inch alloy wheels, sports seats and front foglights.

The petrol-engined car costs 9495 and the diesel 10,395.

However, keen hagglers should remember that the current Ibiza is set to be replaced by an all-new model this summer - that means big discounts should be available on standard current models.
