You could argue that throughout Seats history they have produces some rather dull cars. However, one particular range has always impressed whilst still offering the good value for money purchase the Spanish badge has become known for. Anything with the Cupra performance name tagged onto it tends to be a bit of a dark horse in the hatchback arena. The new Seat Ibiza Cupra looks to continue that tradition.
Sporting a sharp new look, this little Ibiza has so much aggression in its design that it should probably receive an antisocial behavior order. Underneath the angular bodywork is a 1.4 litre TSI engine that produces 178BHP and 250Nm of torque. For a car of this size that concoction is particularly potent. 0-62MPH is completed in just 6.9 seconds with the aid of a DSG gearbox, but the Ibiza wont yield until it get to its top speed of 142MPH. With those sort of number being batted about you my be surprised to hear that this 2013 Seat Ibiza Cupra will also do 47.9MPG.
Prices start from £18,825.
