See how the latest version of Barcelona firm’s supermini caused a stir in Switzerland
16 March 2017

First launched in 1985, the SEAT Ibiza is the best-selling model the Barcelona firm has produced – so there was always going to be plenty of attention on the latest version of the supermini.

The All-new Ibiza made its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show recently, and captured plenty of attention for its mix of stylish design, expert engineering and cutting-edge technology.

Given the popularity of the Ibiza, SEAT wanted to ensure that as many people as possible could experience the newest version. The Barcelona firm invited two Ibiza-owning ambassadors to Switzerland to see the car for the first time, while Autocar partnered with SEAT to provide live coverage from the firm’s stand at the show.

If you missed it, check out the highlights video to see the new Ibiza – and find out what the ambassadors thought of it:

The new Ibiza wasn’t the only car SEAT unveiled at Geneva: there were also two examples of the new Leon CUPRA, the most powerful road car SEAT has ever produced, on display.

To learn more about both the new Ibiza and the new Leon CUPRA, you can still look back through our special promoted live coverage. You’ll find more reaction from the Ibiza ambassadors, updates and information from SEAT board members and plenty more. To check out the live report, click here.

Our Verdict

Seat Ibiza

The Seat Ibiza is good looking, well-priced and spacious supermini that doesn’t quite live up to Seat’s sporty image
