What alternatives should I consider to a used Seat Ibiza hatchback?

A Volkswagen Polo will cost you more than an Ibiza, but will also hold on to its value better thanks to its classy image. Don’t ever rule out the Ford Fiesta in this class, either, for it remains the car that best combines practicality, fun and low running costs.

The Vauxhall Corsa and Skoda Fabia are even better value than the Ibiza, if not as good to drive, and it’s also hard to ignore the Kia Rio, particularly if you can find an example that is still within its seven-year manufacturer warranty.

Verdict

The Seat Ibiza was intended as a more stylish take on the Volkswagen Polo, but how does it fare as a used buy?

  • Keenly priced
  • Low running costs
  • Lots to choose from
  • Cramped rear seats
  • DSG gearbox reliability
  • Rivals are better to drive
