We’d steer clear of entry-level S trim, which misses out on alloys, a colour touchscreen, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and split-folding rear seats.
Stepping up to SE trim gets you all of those things, but you still miss out on the excellent range-topping 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system, automatic lights and wipers and rear parking sensors. So, we'd either recommend going for SE trim and adding a few choice options, or looking higher up the trim range.
Our favourite trim is FR. As well as adding chunkier 17in alloys, this trim gains you a more aggressive bodykit, sports seats, a DAB radio, cruise control and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. You also get sports suspension, which makes the ride a bit firmer but by no means jarring.
Usually we'd advise steering clear of range-topping trims on cars of this size, but with the Ibiza that's not necessarily the case. Xcellence trim gets you a list of standard luxuries that would shame many luxury cars, including keyless entry and start, sat-nav, part-leather, part-Alcantara seats and dual-zone climate control.
