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

I liked the ST until i saw the TV advert yesterday, which made me laugh thankfully rather than vomit. It's such a ridiculous poor and cheap advert i dont know how it got approved, unless it was by an idiot.

"FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION


You value your freedom and individuality and stay away from imposed conventions. Being able to express yourself is a non-negotiable priority. You need room to make things happen, get things done, work, play, plan and live. So long as you have space to add sense to your life, you're content. But let's face it - space is a scarce resource.

SEAT Ibiza ST gives you the freedom. The rest is up to you.

what a load of crap. An thats just from their website!!

if you havent watched the mind numbing tv ad yet, i have warned you.

i feel embarassed on Seats behalf.

I thought the pricing for the ST had been available on the SEAT website for ages?

Anyway, I think it's a neat looking design; certainly more stylish than the Skoda Fabia Estate and neater than Renault's rear-heavy Clio Sport Tourer. I do quite like the rugged distinctiveness of the Peugeot 207 SW Outdoor, however, even if it is somewhat awkward looking from certain angles!

I agree. I saw one on the road the other day and thought it's a good looking estate car. Certainly the only one of the small estates I'd consider.

Weirdly I find myself drawn to the VRS Fabia Estate. When I first saw it I thought Jesus what an ugly car. It's very gawky and odd shaped, yet somehow I quite like it now because it's unusual. The engine is rather interesting being supercharged and turbocharged too. Might be a cheeky 2nd hand purchase in 2 or 3 years time. Couldn't pay full wack for one. 5 or 6 grand it could be a tempting purchase. I'd get laughed at but who cares.

I often like quirky small cars though. Always fancied the old Daihatsu Sirion Rally 2, a slightly breathed upon and styled version they produced in 2003ish.

Colour coded inserts for the dash haven't come quickly enough for VW group products!

Where has all Japanese design went to?

Quite. Cheesier than a Ferrero Rocher ad.
