Review

The Seat Ibiza is one of the best small car on the market, thanks to its fun handling, roomy interior and low running costs. Go for the 1.0 TSI 95 engine and SE Technology or FR trim to get the best value for money.

Trim: FR

If you value sporty looks, it’s worth considering FR trim. As well as adding bigger 17in alloy wheels, this trim gets you a more aggressive-looking bodykit, sports seats, a DAB radio, cruise control and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. It's our favourite trim.

Engine: 1.0 TSI 95

This is effectively a turbocharged version of the entry-level 1.0 MPI. It's the pick of the engine line-up, being punchy from low revs and whisking the Ibiza up to 60mph in around 10 seconds – very respectable by class standards.
