Review

The Seat Ibiza is one of the best small car 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

Based on Xcellence trim but adds yet more luxuries, including adaptive cruise control. It's very expensive, though.

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.
