Generally, the interior of the SEAT Ibiza SC is without superfluous frills and gimmicks.

Generally, the interior of the SEAT Ibiza SC is without superfluous frills and gimmicks. The tidily focused fascia design echoes some of the exterior lines, using different materials in a variety of blacks and greys to create a calming effect.

The dashboard and in particular, the centre console, has two distinct levels, separated along the line of the top of the glovebox. In the test car, the neat button arrays surrounding the MP3 compatible CD/radio system and the air-conditioning unit beneath were in piano black, adding an extra touch of class.

Actually, the car I drove had the optional climate control air-conditioning, which is an extra £250 on top of the £10,280 asking price. Before moving on, I should mention that in all trim levels of the SEAT Ibiza SC, the audio system includes secondary controls on the steering column, six speakers and an AUX socket. Fixtures and fittings for an iPod or similar are also available, as is a built-in docking port on top of the dashboard, for a TomTom navigation system, so you don't have to stick it to the windscreen.

The driver sits some 22mm lower in the new car and is rewarded with a driver-focused cockpit, where all the instruments are angled towards the driver and everything is within easy reach. Being the Sport model, the seats were justifiably supportive, hip-huggingly comfortable and you almost feel ready to take a spin around Oulton Park circuit.
