    * New Seat Ibiza 2006, more comprehensively and better equipped than ever
    * Range now offers a total of 18 model versions, comprising five trim lines and a choice of eleven different engines
    * Five trim lines available: Reference, Stylance, Sport, FR and Cupra
    * New special package for the Reference trim line featuring: climate control, 15-inch light-alloy wheels, front fog lights and cruise control

The new Seat Ibiza has now arrived in Seat’s European dealer network. Seat's most successful model has undergone a major styling transformation, both inside and out. It may not be a new model generation but it can certainly be referred to as the new Ibiza following a body workout which has carefully honed its sporting and dynamic characteristics. At the same time, its appearance now mirrors the looks of the Seat Altea, Toledo and León more closely.

The new Ibiza range goes on sale with a choice of five different trim lines: Reference, Stylance, Sport, FR and Cupra. The model restyling measures are identical for the first three trim lines, while the FR and Cupra versions each feature specific modifications designed to further underline their even sportier character.

Wide range of engines available

The five trim lines and eleven engines combine to produce a model range numbering 18 different versions in total which will all be available from the launch of the new Seat Ibiza.

The engine range for the new Ibiza line will be one of the most complete and wide-ranging on the market, and has not undergone any variation with respect to the current line-up.

These renowned powerplants all offer proven efficiency. The petrol range starts with the 1.2 12v followed by the 1.4 16v units (with manual or automatic gearshift) and finally the 1.8 20v turbo engines reserved for the Ibiza FR and Ibiza Cupra. All of these engines are partnered by five-speed manual gearboxes (apart from the 1.4 16v with automatic gearshift).

The diesel range offers a choice of five different direct-injection TDI engines, including two 1.4-litre and three 1.9-litre units. The 1.4 is the entry-level model with the second 1.4 litre engine developing 10 horsepower more. The 100 horsepower 1.9 engine is the mid-range model, whilst the range is headed by the 130 hp 1.9 fitted in the Ibiza FR and the 160 hp 1.9 which is the most powerful diesel engine in this segment and exclusive to the Ibiza Cupra. These two last power units are coupled to six-speed manual gearboxes, while the three remaining engines come with five-speed manual gearshifts. All five comply with Euro IV emissions standards.

More comprehensively and better equipped

Standard equipment for each trim line is as follows:

Anti-theft roof-mounted aerial, "one-touch" power windows in the front with anti-trap facility, remote controlled central locking, height and reach-adjustable steering wheel, audio system with six speakers and CD player, front passenger seat with Access Plus (system for folding seat forwards to facilitate access to the rear seats) fitted in 3-door models only, height-adjustable front seats, electro-hydraulic power steering, ABS, driver and front passenger airbags, Isofix anchoring points for child seats, light in boot, steel 6Jx15" wheels with 195/55 tyres, spare wheel with the same dimensions.
