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.
With the Skoda Fabia series, Skoda Auto has established a strong foundation for its five-car portfolio. The supermini's family roots are evident throughout. From the bold, elegant lines of its look look-and-feel down to its smallest part, the Skoda Fabia exemplifies Skoda's attention to detail via easy, clever solutions and innovation. And now, in spring 2010, the Skoda Fabia has been completely updated with a new face and an even greater emphasis on energy efficiency and convenience. The breadth of its technical innovations goes far beyond a mere facelift.

The Skoda Fabia Combi and Skoda Roomster also receive the bold new exterior inside and out as well as numerous technical changes under the skin. But while the looks might have changed, the characteristics of this multi-talented pair have not have not. With luggage capacity of 505 litres with its back seatings in place and 1485 litres with them flat, the Skoda Fabia Combi continues to offer the sort of boot room that exceeds what is normally provided in this class. Meanwhile the Skoda Roomster, with its extremely versatile Varioflex back bench system, continues to fulfil the requirements of families and active people alike. Its boot volume can be extended from a minimum of 480 litres to 1810 litres, making the Skoda Roomster a load-carrying champion.

The new Skoda Fabia RS also celebrates its premiere at the 2010 Geneva Motorshow and, for the first time, the sportiest Skoda Fabia is available as an estate. Its mix of a high performance 132 Kw (180 bhp) motor and low fuel consumption of just 6. 4 itres/100 km mark it out as a class leader.

With these variants of the Skoda Fabia series, Skoda Auto provides a model range in the small-car segment to meet almost each buyer need.
