SEAT Ibiza – Heritage
En 1982, un changement crucial intervient dans la vie de la ‘Sociedad Española de Automóviles de Turismo’. Depuis l’arrêt de la coopération avec Fiat, plus aucun projet nouveau n’est étudié. Les ventes chutent inexorablement et le constructeur espagnol cherche des contrats pour produire des automobiles pour le compte d’autres constructeurs afin de ne pas faire faillite. Volkswagen devient partenaire industriel et commercial de Seat : la marque allemande assistera Seat dans la vente de ses modèles hors de son marché d’origine tandis que certains modèles Audi et Volkswagen seront fabriqués en Espagne dans les usines Seat.
Le gouvernement espagnol a choisi de renflouer Seat avec 180 milliards de pesetas sous forme de subventions, puis de vendre une première tranche de 50% de Seat à Volkswagen pour 40 milliards de pesetas. À cette occasion, Fiat exprime largement son désaccord, faisant remarquer une différence de traitement manifeste par le refus en 1980 du gouvernement espagnol de couvrir les 20 milliards de dettes de l’entreprise en échange du prix de vente de ses parts.
La Seat Ibiza, lancée en 1984 à partir d’un projet refusé de Volkswagen Golf II, constitue le premier modèle entièrement original de Seat. Elle a tout pour créer l’événement : dessinée par les équipes d’Italdesign du styliste italien Giorgetto Giugiaro sur la plateforme de l’ancienne 127, ses moteurs sont conçus par Porsche comme l’indique un monogramme de la marque allemande sur les ailes de la voiture sauf le moteur diesel qui est celui de l’ancienne Seat Ritmo.
SEAT Ibiza – A legendary car
Martorell, 26/01/2017. – In 1984, Michael Jackson took the music world by storm with Thriller. On the big screen, Ghostbusters and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom smashed all box-office records. It was also the year when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was born, and the year the first SEAT Ibiza was launched on the market. Since then, this model has been driving on streets and roads all over the world continuously for 33 years. Keep reading to find out some interesting facts and figures about this legendary model.
In three decades, the SEAT Ibiza has accumulated four generations. It is the top-selling Spanish passenger car – to date, more than 5.4 million units have been sold. If they were arranged in a straight line, they would exceed the distance between Barcelona and New Zealand.
Every generation of the Ibiza was designed, developed and produced in Barcelona. Italy’s Giorgetto Giugiaro was the Design Director responsible for the first generation. The engine was developed with the collaboration of Porsche, thereby creating the System Porsche designation, and car module manufacturer Karmann helped build the bodywork.
The Ibiza was the official car of the Barcelona ’92 Olympic Games. It also achieved notable successes in competition racing, such as the three FIA World Rally Championship titles in the 2 litre category in 1996, 97 and 98.
SEAT Ibiza I – 1984 – 1992
It was introduced at the 1984 Paris Motor Show as the first car developed by SEAT as an independent company, though it was designed by SEAT in collaboration with well-known firms such as Italdesign, Karmann and Porsche. The SEAT Ibiza Mk1 (codenamed 021A) entered production in the ‘Zona Franca’ assembly lines.
By the time Giugiaro was assigned to the Ibiza project, his previous proposal for the second generation of the Volkswagen Golf had been rejected by Volkswagen. So when SEAT approached him with the proposal for a spacious supermini class contender, that particular project was reincarnated as the first generation of the SEAT Ibiza.
La première génération d’Ibiza a vu le jour en 1984. C’est alors la première voiture inédite créée par la marque. Elle fut dessinée par Giorgetto Giugiaro, d’après un dessin… refusé par Volkswagen pour la Golf II.
Lors de sa commercialisation, elle proposait deux moteurs essence, 1,2 litre et 1,5 litre System Porsche, et un diesel d’origine Fiat de 1,7 litre, hérité de la Seat Ritmo.
En 1988, Seat complète son offre avec une version sportive, la Ibiza SXI, motorisée d’un 1,5 litre injection Porsche et une version Junior équipée du fameux moteur Fiat 100GB bien connu de Seat qui l’avait largement utilisé sur ses modèles anciens lorsque la marque Seat faisait partie de Fiat : 850, 850 Coupé, 127, Fura, Panda, Marbella.
SEAT Ibiza II – 1993 – 2002
La deuxième génération a vu le jour en 1993. Châssis et mécanique sont étroitement dérivés de la Volkswagen Polo. Cette seconde génération d’Ibiza dite 6K a connue trois phases. Un léger lifting a été opéré en 1996, de nouveaux pare-chocs font leur apparition. puis en 1998, modifications de quelques détails mineures.
Fin 1999 arrive un restylage profond, ce sera la 6K2, qui perdurera jusqu’en 2001.
SEAT Ibiza III -2002 – 2008
Ibiza III by the Italian designer Walter de Silva, intended to have a sporty, performance image.
Le design de l’Ibiza III inclut une calandre basse en nid d’abeille, des pare-chocs couleur carrosserie et un becquet arrière. Des phares bi-xénon réglables électriquement pour plus de visibilité.
Seat Ibiza IV – 2008 – 2012
a Seat Ibiza IV (6J) a été présentée au salon de Genève de 2008, sous le nom de la Seat CoupeSport « Bocanegra » Concept, le constructeur espagnol en dévoile la version cinq portes. Ce modèle est sorti officiellement en France le 26 juin 2008.
L’aspect général de cette Ibiza 5 portes est plutôt dynamique (ligne Arrow Design), le gabarit est plus imposant qu’auparavant et la face avant qui n’est pas sans évoquer celle du Seat Tribu Concept (découpe des fenêtres par exemple) vu à Francfort fin 2007. Cette Ibiza a inauguré une nouvelle plate-forme, utilisée depuis par les Audi A1, Volkswagen Polo et Skoda Fabia.
La Seat Ibiza IV dispose au choix de 5 blocs essence allant de 75 ch à 210 ch ainsi que de trois diesel allant de 75 ch à 90 ch. Lancée avec les diesels ancienne génération à injecteurs-pompes si cher au groupe Volkswagen, l’Ibiza a progressivement profité des nouveaux blocs maison à rampe commune comme tous les diesels actuels (common rail) malheureusement toujours aussi bruyants. Ceux-ci sont communs à la Volkswagen Polo ainsi qu’à de nombreux autres modèles du groupe.
The SEAT Ibiza is currently used by German team Münnich Motorsport in the FIA World Rallycross Championship. Debuting at the 2016 World RX of Portugal, the vehicle has had a best result of fifth in the French round of the 2016 season.

Design SEAT Ibiza 2017
The New SEAT Ibiza is already here loaded with the latest technology features, outstanding dynamics, and an impressive improvement in interior space and comfort. The Spanish brand’s most important model has all-new styling while preserving the same youthful, functional, sporty and comfortable spirit as always. And it does so with a fresh design that reflects the latest SEAT distinctive character by continuing with the brand’s DNA but with an edgier, sportier design, featuring more sculpted, accentuated, exciting and streamlined surfaces. The fifth generation of the SEAT Ibiza will make its public debut at the next Geneva Auto Show and go on sale in June 2017.
The new SEAT Ibiza, then, is a completely new model that was created with very ambitious goals in mind: To go a major step ahead in safety, design, performance and comfort. This huge advance in quality was achieved thanks to the new MQB A0 modular platform. The new SEAT Ibiza is the Volkswagen Group first model to use this platform, highlighting SEAT’s importance within the Group and offering countless advantages.
Launched in 1984 for the first time, the Ibiza has become an icon of SEAT. This car has been around the longest in the history of the brand and is its top-selling model, with over 5.4 million units sold. The Ibiza is one of the three pillars of the company, together with the Leon and Ateca, on which SEAT relies to continue building the success of the company in the future.
The new SEAT Ibiza has impressively increased its interior roominess, it is a lot more robust, and also, a lot safer. It is much wider by a stunning 87 mm, it is two mm shorter and one lower than the previous model, but more than anything, the change in its dimensions conveys a powerful image of a car that hugs the ground. And the key is in the new MQB A0 platform.
The wheeltrack is 60 mm wider at the front axle and 48 at the rear axle, while the distance between the axles is 2,564 millimetres, a 95-mm increase. The result is a much more comfortable car, with the new SEAT Ibiza being both roomier on the inside and larger on the outside. For example, leg room in the back seats has increased by 35 mm, while the head room has gone up by 24 mm in the front seats and 17 mm in the back. The seats are an astonishing 42 mm wider, making the new SEAT Ibiza one of the best in its class in this area. The boot has also been enlarged by 63 litres, bringing its total capacity to 355 litres, making it best in class. The loading height has also been lowered, proof that SEAT knows how to combine design and functionality.
The car’s dynamic behaviour, ride quality and driving comfort are exceptional thanks to the new MQB A0 platform, as well as to the 30% higher torsional stiffness. The new SEAT Ibiza is only available in a 5-door option, which is now more functional and the new design offers the sportier look of a 3-door model. There have also been qualitative leaps forward in terms of noise control, vibrations and ride harshness. The new SEAT Ibiza offers the quality of a more luxurious automobile. It’s also agile in the city, efficient on curved roads and offers excellent comfort on long trips.
The interior ambient LED lighting for the FR and XCellence versions is offered in two colours, red and white. The use of LED technology for the interior and exterior lights is not an aesthetic whim. LEDs offer much higher quality lighting while saving energy, thus yielding improved fuel economy. The full LED lights on the Ibiza (headlights, dashboard, indicators and rear fog lights) are new in this class.
The New SEAT Ibiza presents a partnership with Beatsaudio soundsystem, a brand bringing energy, emotion and excitement that has changed the way people listen to music. It uses a digital signal processor (DSP), 7 premium speakers and an 8-channel with 300W amplifier.

Design extérieur SEAT Ibiza 2017
Thanks to more than three decades of history and its importance as the main pillar in the SEAT brand, the 5th generation of the Ibiza has been a total challenge in terms of design. It had to be fresh and young, and yet mature and balanced too. And this is how the new SEAT Ibiza stands out straight away; its perfect proportions, strong character and agile look. Its characteristic SEAT brushstrokes have not just been maintained, but taken to the next level, pushing the evolution of SEAT’s design DNA. You only need a glance to feel what the designer sketched when creating the new car and see that this is the best design SEAT has ever come up with in the A0 category.
At the front of the car, the triangular Full LED headlights and the iconic daylight graphics make the new SEAT instantly recognisable. The badge is not only displayed proudly on the grille, but is also enhanced by the two characteristic lines on the bonnet, with a slight gap in the chrome frame. The x-shaped design gives great dynamism and incredible visual stability.
The front and rear overhangs are very short, with the four wheels situated on the four corners of the car, making the car stable, dynamic and sporty. The longer wheelbase and window graphics accentuate the size of the new Ibiza, while the double blisters down the length of the car are typically SEAT, giving the car a more expressive, three-dimensional look. The bodywork has been beautifully sculpted, combining sharp lines and smooth surfaces. Its new wheels, up to 18 inches and with two tones to choose from, give an elegant touch.
The rear of the car is also typical of the Ibiza. Its rear lights wrap around the car, interacting with the blisters at the rear, properly proportioned within a unique design and offering fantastic aerodynamic performance. The boot’s strong lines and bumpers make the car appear wide and give the car an almost monolithic look, while the rear reflectors appear to bring the car closer to the ground. The FR trim comes with details that bring out its sporty character, such as the exhaust tips either side of the rear bumper. The XCellence trims receive chrome details that emphasise their sophistication and refinement.
Design intérieur SEAT Ibiza 2017
In terms of the interior, the same design steps have been followed that are now in the SEAT Leon and Ateca, but this time with a new vision for its design language. More tension, more technical and precise lines and lighter proportions have all been added in order to achieve a more elegant look and a greater level of perceived quality, while new materials have managed to safeguard its youthful and dynamic character. Structurally, a special emphasis has been put on its horizontal proportions in the assembly of its different functional areas, including the elevated console in the interior to improve ergonomic performance and safety. The aim was to achieve perfect proportions and a greater sense of space and comfort.
All of the controls and instruments are situated around the driver in the highest position possible to avoid the driver having to take his or her eyes off the road. Just as with the new Leon and Ateca, the start button is in the same place, to the left of the gearbox. This is also in the highest position possible for ease-of-use. Upon analysing the top quality of each and every detail of the new SEAT Ibiza, one cannot help but think of models in higher categories, from the innumerable personalisation possibilities to the possibility of choosing the colour of the interior LED lighting, without forgetting of course the onboard technology, such as the 8-inch touchscreen and the Full Link connectivity system. The cockpit is protected by an Air Care filter that isolates the occupants from any type of allergens, creating a completely contaminant-free space.
Its exciting design, its dynamic behaviour and driving quality, the feeling of incredible stability and reliability on the road, vastly improved interior quality, incredibly safe and easy-to-use technology, roomier interior, all combine to make the new SEAT Ibiza, a really attractive option and of course at the best price.
Châssis SEAT Ibiza 2017
The latest technology from the Volkswagen Group, the MQB platform – Modular Quer Baukasten -, allows higher manufacturing flexibility and robust implementation, as it supports different models and allows for different body types within the same segment and different wheelbase configurations can be achieved within the same base platform. SEAT’s investments and R&D expenditure in recent years were partially allocated to adapt Line 1 at the Martorell factory to the new MQB A0 platform, allowing SEAT to be the first company of the Volkswagen group to use this technology.
The number of parts using Hot-Forming technology has been increased, and that contributes to reduce weight and to increase rigidity, therefore improving performance and accounting for lower consumption. In particular for the new Ibiza, 900 robots and more than 4000 welding points guarantee the robustness of the vehicle. Spot welding combined with laser technology bring components together with a great result: A lightweight body with extreme structural stiffness.
Moteur SEAT Ibiza 2017
All of the engines available on the new SEAT Ibiza comply with the Euro6 emissions regulation and lead the way in performance, with outstanding features, high mileage and low emissions. There are three aluminium block and cylinder petrol engines to choose from. The first option is the 3 cylinder 1.0 TSI with 95 or 115 PS, along with a turbocompressor, intercooler and direct injection. A new 1.5 TSI will be available in late 2017 with four cylinders and 150 PS. Efficient 1.6 TDI diesel engines will come in 80, 95 and 115 PS varieties.
Finally, the new MQB A0 platform allows the New Ibiza to offer a compressed-natural gas (CNG) powered 90-PS 1.0 TSI engine. SEAT is the first maker to offer an engine of this type in this class. The gearboxes available are a manual 5-speed transmission for the 95-PS and lower engines and a 6-speed transmission for the more powerful engines. The dual-clutch DSG 7-speed gearbox is another of the options available on the new SEAT Ibiza.
