Seat is pushing forward with its offering offensive - the Seat Ibiza ST is the third body style in the successful compact line-up from the Spanish maker. The estate version of the Seat Ibiza is the ideal car for a youthful and sporty lifestyle, combining all of the brand's strong values - it has an emotional and appealing layout, it is dynamic and efficient, practical and simple to use and financially attainable. The Seat Ibiza ST provides six modern motor variants and a broad range of features and technologies. Sphere release is planned for May 2010, with impressive value-for-money across all variants.
In creating the Seat Ibiza ST, Seat developers have taken a highly functional concept and clad it in the Spanish company's original layout language. It retains the youthfully sporty character of the Seat Ibiza model range despite the estate principle with its big luggage compartment. The roofline stretches far to the back with the back overhang integrated perfectly into the overall layout, while the taut side profile lends greater visual impact to the proportions. The front end bears Seat's hallmark arrow layout and the back end has an individual and distinctive exterior courtesy of the two-part light clusters.
With an overall length of 4. 23 metres, the Seat Ibiza ST is longer than the 5-door version by 18 centimetres - enabling a lot of of load room to meet all the demands of a sporty and mobile lifestyle. The base volume starts at a generous 430 litres and can be expanded in steps by folding the split back bench rear. Developers paid particular attention to optimising the breadth and depth of the load opening. The entire bodyshell is built with the exceptional precision and stiffness that distinguishes Seat offers.
The dashboard of the Seat Ibiza ST provides an cool level of room and a luxury character. Seat developers and developers paid enormous attention to the tiniest details. All components are functional, practical to use and meticulously crafted - as evident in the high class of the materials. A taut feel to the cockpit, circular air vents, a modern gear stick - the emotional character expressed in the layout of the Seat Ibiza ST is also evident in the dashboard.
