All-new SEAT Ibiza wins Autocar supermini group test

All New SEAT Ibiza

The all-new Ibiza has beaten its main supermini competitors in a nine-car group test by leading weekly motoring magazine Autocar.

The comparison, published in the 5 July edition of the title, pitted the latest addition to the SEAT line-up against the Ford Fiesta, Mini One, Mazda 2, Citroen C3, Kia Rio, Suzuki Swift, Renault Clio and Nissan Micra – and the Ibiza beat the lot.

This victory comes hard on the heels of a five-star review in Autocar’s sister title, What Car?, and Auto Express’s ‘Best Supermini’ award last month, giving the car three terrific results even before it hits showrooms this summer.

Autocar concluded: “One thing is clear: with its handsome looks, practical and appealing cabin, superior infotainment functions and a driving experience that comes closer than any other to equalling the Ford’s in the broadest terms, the new SEAT Ibiza is the biggest achiever in 2017’s brave new world of small cars.”
