The UK-market Seat Ibiza has been recently revised and most of the models in the lineup have received a price cut. Scheduled to hit the dealerships in April, the Ibiza ST FR will be making its first appearance. It will be available with either a 1.2-liter engine with 105 PS or a beefier 1.4-liter engine with 150 PS. Both of these engines run on gasoline, while diesels include a 1.6-liter TDI with 105 PS and a more powerful 2.0-liter TDI with 143 PS.
The 3-door version of the Seat Ibiza SC will have a base price of 9995 pounds on the road, while the 5-door model will set you back at least 11,430 pounds for the 1.2 70 PS A/C version. The cheapest ST model will cost 12,140 pounds.
The core basic model of the lineup is the Ibiza S A/C is going to cost 300 pounds less than the outgoing S Copa version. Also 300 pounds cheaper is the new SE model will replaces the previous SE Copa. As for the FR models, these are up to 1100 pounds more affordable than before. 5-door versions are 500 pounds more expensive in comparison to their 3-door SC siblings, while ST versions are 710 pounds pricier than the 5-door Ibizas.
Aside from the price cut, the Ibiza comes with several revisions which should be mentioned, like the reshaped headlights that now have sculptural elements that look like the ones in the Exeo and Alhambra models. For more money customers can opt for bi-xenon headlights with LED DLRs. The car now comes with a smaller front grille, while all of the models in the lineup feature a lower grille which up until now only the hotter FR and Cupra versions came with.
At the back, we notice that the taillights have been updated, while the FR model comes with LED lightning. Inside the cabin, there is a new climate control console, a new design for the steering wheel and a bigger glovebox.
