Review

The Seat Ibiza is one of the best small cars you can buy, 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.

get the best price

Our favourite trim. As well as 17in alloy wheels, this trim gains you a more aggressive-looking bodykit, climate control, LED headlights, cruise control and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. You also get the sports suspension for more agile handling.

This entry-level 79bhp petrol engine is best avoided, because with no turbocharger to boost performance at low revs, it needs to be worked incredibly hard if you want to get anywhere in a hurry.
