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 115

This engine is more than up to the job, pulling eagerly from low revs and whisking the car up to speed surprisingly briskly if you allow the revs to build. However, the 94bhp 1.0 TSI is almost as punchy and a fair bit cheaper, so that's where our money would go.
