Seat has been considered the problem of Volkswagen group but it is certainly making a great new turn towards redemption. With the introduction of 2017 Seat Ibiza, this trend will surely continue. There is a good deal of latest advancements on the Ibiza making it one of the best superminis.

According to Auto Express UK, the 2017 Seat Ibiza gets a new platform which makes for a more spacious interior in spite of it being a supermini. The car also looks lower and wider, however, the inside is impressively roomy for a vehicle of this size. It is satisfactory as there were no complaints regarding its head, leg, and shoulder room.

There is also more space for cargo. Some vehicles compromise passenger space for the sake of bigger cargo space, while some don't have much cargo because of a more spacious cabin. This is not the case for the Ibiza as both passenger and cargo space are not compromised. The cargo space measures 355-liters.

The Ibiza makes for a quiet drive. The car comes powered by 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo engine which produces 114-bhp. It can also accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 9.3-seconds. Revving it to its limit gives that engine growl, however, for the most part, it is extremely quiet. Who would want to rev up a 1-0-liter three-cylinder mini car anyway?

The gearshift is also easy and the steering is reported to be positive and secure. As added by Top Gear, the FR, on the other hand, provides more power capable of producing 150-bhp because of its 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. There is also a diesel version soon to come, however, it is not expected to be widely accepted in Britain.

The 2017 Seat Ibiza's exterior follows Seat's recent angular, sharp-edged, and polygonal themes. Lines on the bonnet and body-sides catch the light. The proportions also help because the longer wheelbase and wider track push the wheels to the corners.

The 2017 Seat Ibiza is one impressive supermini and is expected to have a good following. Thanks to the Ibiza, Seat will greatly improve its sales figures. Small cars are definitely a prime commodity in Europe, and the Seat Ibiza may easily be on the top of every buyers' minds.
