New Seat Ibiza set for debut show
Dubai, April 20, 2008
The new Seat Ibiza will be making its debut motor show appearance in Madrid as part of its European market launch.
Seat will unveil the new Ibiza at its development and production facility in Martorell on May 22, 2008.
“The new Seat Ibiza is the car for the young and the young-at-heart, people who appreciate design, sportiness and quality, and are also environmentally aware,” said chairman of the board of management Erich Schmitt.
The Seat Ibiza benefits from a new technical basis, with a longer wheelbase and greater track width, which results in enhanced dynamic qualities. At the same time, the Ibiza expands its comfort and safety specification with parking sensors and cornering light function, as well as newly developed airbag systems.
The new Seat Ibiza combines comfort and safety with a reduced vehicle weight. The lower weight, the efficient engines and the reconfigured transmission ratios all add up to reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
All of the petrol-powered models emit less than 160g CO2/km, while the entire diesel range keeps CO2 emissions below 120g/km.
“The Seat Ibiza is intended to heighten emotions and lower emissions,” added Schmitt.
The looks of the Seat Ibiza are moulded by the new “Arrow Design” concept. It’s newly designed front-end and the distinctly contoured lines running lengthwise reinforce the vehicle’s dynamic, modern statement, while tremendous attention to detail makes the sporty Spanish model more than street-ready.
