The dashboard is made using something called ‘one-shot’ moulding.
Overall, the changes to the revised Ibiza include new front and rear bumpers and more aggressive front air intakes, which are now in three sections. Twin headlights are now fitted as standard throughout the model range.
The dashboard is made using something called ‘one-shot’ moulding. It gives the fascia a smoother appearance most noticeable in the passenger air bag cover. Instead of a hinge, this section is micro-perforated so that it detaches easily if the airbag is deployed.
I like the way in which the centre console begins as a surround for the instrument pod. It then flows down towards the centre where it angles towards the driver housing the climate and audio system controls. All Ibiza models have a single radio/CD player with six speakers, Satellite Navigation is not available for the Ibiza in the UK.
Overall we enjoyed our time with the SEAT Ibiza which we feel appeals to the design conscious consumer who requires practicality but not at the expense of driving pleasure. It is a very likeable vehicle that is easy to drive and live with.12 March 2007
