COMFORT. The 2017 SEAT Ibiza is wider than the previous model. There is enough space for the passengers' comfortable ride, which is also made possible by its longer wheelbase.

The new model's bigger size also results to another level of comfort. The new Ibiza also carries properly fitted, bigger seats to bring more comfort for passengers.

PERFORMANCE. The 2017 SEAT Ibiza now utilizes the latest A0 version of the VW Group MQB platform. The new model is now lighter and stiffer because of the new platform. The new characteristics of the new Ibiza means improved performance and handling.
