Rather than stick to traditional naming protocols, when it came to the three-door version of the new Ibiza, SEAT decided it was time to up the ante and make a statement of intent. So, it isn't the 3-door Ibiza, it is the SEAT Ibiza SC.

Although SC stands for SportCoupe, the current engine sizes would suggest that is just a name rather than a proclamation of its prowess, but more of that later. Even taken at face value, the SportCoupe label might seem a little pretentious for a super-mini but the body language alone is enough to give pause to that thought.

Featuring an updated version of the distinctive lines that make the SC unmistakably, SEAT from any angle, the car has a proud, almost arrogant attitude. At the front, the new chromed grille sits above a broadly grimacing lower, mesh grille, while design creases flow across and around the body at various angles, And somehow, it all manages to come together...
