Seat launched a new sub-Cupra range at last week’s Bologna Motor Show. The 148bhp Ibiza FR goes on sale early next year ‘for under £13,000’, and offers a 135mph top speed and 0-62mph in 8.4sec.

Power comes from a 1.8 20-valve turbo engine; stiffer suspension is designed to sharpen handling.

The Ibiza is the first of a range of warm FR models to slot in beneath the more extreme Cupra.
