SEAT Ibiza

(2017 - present)

The SEAT Ibiza is a small, supermini-class hatchback. The current model arrived in the UK in the summer of 2017 and shares a lot of its underpinnings with the Volkswagen Polo and Audi A1.

Unlike previous generations, the current Ibiza is only available as a five-door hatch, with no three-door version. There is also a high-performance Ibiza Cupra model. We are building a separate page for this version, so check back soon.

The SEAT Ibiza has received mostly very positive reviews from the UK motoring media, as well as several awards. Based on 15 reviews we have currently analysed, it ranks second in class overall behind the Ford Fiesta. Somewhat embarrassingly for the Volkswagen Group, the Ibiza is more highly regarded by the UK media than the VW Polo.

The Ibiza has received particular praise for its comfort and refinement, although its driving dynamics are not considered to be as sharp at the class-leading Fiesta.
