Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Eco Car
The latest SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive brings a big improvement in carbon emissions to what was already an impressive car. Despite the new level of environmental friendliness and economic motoring, the Ibiza Ecomotive remains a stylish, fun and remarkably practical hatch back. Prices start at around £13,000 for new models.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Car Tax Exempt
The SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive range contains some of the most fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly cars available anywhere. All of the Ecomotive models in the Ibiza series have very low carbon emissions, meaning they sit in the lowest car tax band, so you pay nothing for your tax disc. (Tax Band A_
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Low C02 Emissions
The SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive produces a truly impressive 92g/km, making it one of the greenest cars you can buy. This also makes for very frugal motoring, so you can enjoy being environmentally friendly and financially prudent.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Miles Per Gallon (MPG)
The incredibly efficient Seat Ibiza 1.2 Tdi Cr Ecomotive S version with Air Conditioning does up to 92.1 miles to the gallon, an average of 80.7mpg and at worst 67.3MPG. Even the urban cycle is incredibly impressive.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Safety
The SEAT Ibiza enjoys a great range of safety features and technologies, which contribute to the cars 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating. The Ibiza comes with head and chest airbags for both driver and passengers. Driving safety is boosted by ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) and the XDS electronic differential. Anti lock brakes keep things stable under braking.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Extra Efficiency
The SEAT Ibiza Ecomotive is more than just a highly-efficient engine. Seat’s Start-Stop and Energy Recovery Systems ensure that the car makes the most efficient use of all energy possible, meaning you spend less at the fuel pumps. The free car tax means extra savings every year as well.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Comfort
The Ibiza’s suspension is an excellent compromise between sporting stiffness and bump absorption. Lack of unnecessary body roll and the relatively quiet engine in town (thanks partly to the start/stop system) make the Ibiza a pretty comfortable place to be.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Quality
SEAT is part of the same company that produces Volkswagens and Audis, both of which are noted for legendary quality of design and construction. The SEAT Ibiza should enjoy similar levels of quality, even if some of the interior materials may not quite be up to the most expensive standards. Mechanically, the Ibiza Ecomotive is unlikely to suffer quality issues.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Performance
As the accent here is on economic performance, don’t expect a fire-breathing speed demon. It would probably be a bit excessive to refer to the Ecomotive as energetic but it does a pretty good job of getting around and with that taut chassis, the Ibiza Ecomotive makes for a surprisingly fun drive. The Seat Ibiza Ecomotive has a top speed of 108 mph and it reaches 62mph in 13.9 seconds.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Space
The five-door Ibiza Ecomotive offers plenty of room in both the front and back. The three-door is perhaps more stylish but then getting into the back is not so easy. There’s a good amount of cargo space in the Ibiza and, combined with the low running costs, this is an extremely practical car to own and drive.
Seat Ibiza Ecomotive – Tyres
The Ibiza Ecomotive uses low rolling-resistance tyres that give up some grip in order to boost fuel economy. Though this means some loss of ultimate grip, the car retains its entertaining handling. What’s more, the feedback actually improves with the slight loss of grip, making the car even more fun as a driver’s car.
