Which used Seat Ibiza hatchback should I buy?
The beauty of the Ibiza is that the cheapest model is probably the best. The three-cylinder 1.2-litre engine with 63bhp keeps up with traffic in- and out of town, and has low running costs.
The 74bhp 1.4-litre is worth considering, but it needs to be worked hard. Performance fans are catered for by the 150bhp FR and 178bhp Cupra models, introduced in 2004, which both have a turbocharged 1.8-litre engine.
