Just a few short months after the arrival of the all-new SEAT Ibiza, SEAT Ireland has added a new model to the Ibiza line-up in the form of the Ibiza FR model.
The ‘warm hatch’ of the Ibiza range adds the peppy 1.2-litre TSI engine with 105bhp. Yet despite this additional power, the car remains in Motor Tax Band A with emissions of just 119g/km. Performance is brisk, with 0-100km/k in just under ten seconds.
The Ibiza FR includes eye-catching exterior accents, such as new headlights with optional LEDs and rear lights with LEDs as standard, special bumpers with FR badging, a twin chrome tailpipe and stunning 16” alloy wheels, while the interior features supportive sports seats and a specific FR-branded instrument display.
Under the skin, the FR features the latest generation electronic XDS system, which together with ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) provides better transfer of power out of corners.
There is a powerful CD/Radio/MP3 player with AUX-In, USB and Bluetooth connectivity which will fulfil the needs of most audiophiles. You also get air conditioning and a specific FR Leather steering wheel as standard
The new Ibiza FR is on sale now, priced from just €16,940.
