The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

If you like a fairly low-slung driving position, the Seat Ibiza will suit you better than many small cars, including the Ford Fiesta. The seat is supportive (especially in FR trim models) and you’ll easily find a comfortable driving position, thanks to a good amount of seat and steering wheel adjustability. It’s a shame you can’t get adjustable lumbar support, but lower back support is reasonable without it. 

The interior is laid out in a logical fashion. True, the air-con controls are positioned quite low down on the dashboard, but they’re clearly labelled and not too distracting to use while you’re driving.

To help you see where you’re going at night, automatic LED headlights come as standard on all trims. Their brightness varies depending on your trim level – SE and SE Technology models get eco-LED lights while the higher trims get full LEDs.

Sat nav and infotainment

All versions of the Ibiza come with a touchscreen infotainment system, which measures 8.25in on entry-level SE models and 9.2in on all other trims. You have to go for the bigger screen to get built-in sat-nav, although a DAB radio and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring come as standard across the range.

We’ve yet to try the smaller screen, but the larger version is one of the better touchscreens in the small car class. It's crisp and bright, responding quickly when you prod it, and the operating system is relatively easy to get used to.
