Review

The Seat Ibiza is one of the best small cars you can buy thanks to its tidy 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.

The range-topping Xcellence Lux option takes Xcellence a step further by adding adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors and a rear-view camera to the Ibiza. Due to its price tag, we find it hard to recommend it unless you can find a great deal.

Our pick of the three engines on offer. It has 94bhp and is turbocharged so it pulls more eagerly from low revs and whisks the Ibiza up to speed in a surprisingly brisk fashion. Wondering how briskly? Well, in our tests it managed 0-60mph in 9.8 seconds.
