SEAT Ibiza overview
The New SEAT Ibiza is a supermini class hatchback. Its primary purpose is to excel in the urban environment where its compact proportions, tight turning circle, and good visibility make it easy to manoeuvre. It has 5 doors, 355-litre cargo capacity and measures 4,059mm long by 1,780mm wide. Prices range from £13,130 to £17,310.
The engines effectively balance performance with fuel economy. Options include the: 1.0-litre 75PS petrol, 1.0-litre 95PS petrol and the 1.0-litre 115PS petrol.

Expect an audible/visual alert if it gets short relative to stopping distance. If the alert is ignored, the system brakes automatically to avoid the collision or reduce its severity.

SEAT Ateca overview
The Ateca is a sports-utility style vehicle. A core strength is that it blends rugged, off-road, styling – and in some forms 4-wheel-drive – with car-like handling and costs. It therefore has the look of a off-road warrior but is easier to live with. Ateca also has 5 doors, a 510-litre boot and measures 4,363mm by 1,841mm.
Petrol engines include the: 1.0-litre 115PS, 1.4-litre 150PS and 2.0-litre 190PS. Diesel power comes via 1.6-litre, 115PS, and 2.0-litre, 150PS, units. Expect 0-62mph in 7.5 to 11.5 seconds and fuel consumption from 40.4 to 62.8mpg. Emissions vary from 118 to 159g/km. Choose a 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmission.
Trims are: S, SE, SE Technology, FR and XCELLENCE. The Virtual Pedal is among the helpful features. If your arms are full of shopping and the car’s key is within close proximity, simply wave your foot beneath the rear bumper. The tailgate then rises automatically. New SEAT Ateca prices range from £18,340 to £31,260.
