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

Xcellence trim is lavishly equipped. You get keyless entry, faux-suede upholstery and dual-zone climate control as standard, so don't rule it out if you love your creature comforts.

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.
