This is the Seat Ibiza ST.
The baby estate will join the three and five-door models in Seat’s Ibiza range when it launches in the UK this summer.
The Ibiza ST is 180mm longer than the hatchback model at 4230mm. Boot space is 430 litres, up from 292 litres in the hatch, and this can be further increased by folding down the split rear seats.
Seat says it has tried to optimise access to the rear hatch by making the opening as wide and as low as possible.
Much of the styling mirrors the hatchback’s, incorporating Seat’s ‘Arrow Design’ front-end package. Changes at the rear include split rear light clusters.
There will be three petrol and two diesel engines available at launch, including 1.2-litre TDI and 1.2-litre TSI units. Four of the motors feature direct-injection and turbocharging, and power outputs range from 84bhp to 104bhp. A six-speed DSG gearbox will be optional.
The Ibiza ST is expected to be priced from £12,500 to compete with the Peugeot 207SW and Renault Clio ST.
