The fifth generation of the SEAT Ibiza will only be available with a 5-door body. Already orders can be made for the petrol versions although, for the moment, SEAT has not informed us of the discount that can apply to the rates. Its starting price is 14,060 euros for the version with 75 horses.
It is, therefore, significantly more expensive than a Mazda2 , a Renault Clio or a Škoda Fabia equivalent (to which the discount that each mark gives applies, comparative tab ). The first units will arrive in June 2017, at which time the versions with diesel engine will also go on sale.
There will not be, as in the previous generation , a variant of three doors, nor a family type. The Ibiza 2017 is the first vehicle of the Volkswagen group that uses the new modular platform MQB A0. The body of the Ibiza 2017 is 4.06 meters long, 1.78 m wide and 1.44 m high. It is, therefore, 2 mm shorter, 87 mm wider and 1 mm lower than the model it replaces. Some of its main rivals are the Ford Fiesta , the KIA Rio , the Opel Corsa and the Renault Clio.
The wheelbase grows 95 mm (in total measures 2.56 meters), which according to SEAT translates into more space for the legs of the rear occupants (35 mm more, we will check when we can take measurements) and in 63 liters more Of trunk. The volume of the latter is 355 liters. With the exception of the Suzuki Baleno , there is no 5-door tourism that measures less than 4.20 meters in length that has a larger luggage compartment ( listing sorted by trunk size ).

At the end of 2017 SEAT will add to the range another petrol engine, four-cylinder, called 1.5 TSI with 150 hp.
