Common Rail Diesel joins Seat Ibiza line-up

30 April 2009

Common Rail Diesel joins Seat Ibiza line-up


SEAT is significantly broadening the appeal of its already-popular Ibiza range with the imminent arrival of an all-new diesel engine to the sexy Spanish superminiís line-up.

The summer debut of a smooth new 105 PS 1.6-litre four cylinder TDI, which brings with it cutting edge common rail fuelling, radically enhances both the Ibiza 5dr and Ibiza SCís market coverage and instantly places the svelte five-seater on the test drive list of many more private and business buyers.

The new diesel-engined SEATís stats speak for themselves: CO2 emissions of just 109 g/km, combined fuel economy of 67.2 mpg and a provisional 0-62 mph time of just 10.5 seconds propel the Spaniard into the supermini premier league.

Generating a distinctly healthy 250 Nm torque peak at just 1,500 rpm, channelled to the driven front wheels via a crisp five-speed manual gearbox, the diesel-powered Ibiza is capable of a 117 mph top speed.

Available in Sport specification across both the elegant 5dr and dynamic SC bodystyles, the new diesel joins an already generous selection of four cylinder petrol engines in 1.2-, 1.4- and 1.6-litre guises.

It also sits alongside the all-new Ibiza Ecomotive, which is powered by a super-frugal 1.4-litre three cylinder TDI which, like the 1.6-litre TDI CR, boasts a diesel particulate filter (DPF) as standard.

Like its fuel-sipping Ecomotive sibling, the new diesel engine allows the Ibiza to easily meet forthcoming tough new EU5 emissions targets.

More details about the new diesel-engined Ibiza, including RRP pricing, will be unveiled closer to the new modelís showroom launch in July.
