If you are not impressed by the sprint time of the SEAT Ibiza SC, the handling will not fail to impress. This is where the 'Sport comes into play. The Sports suspension makes for great agility and dynamics and, with help of the optional, 17-inch, low profile tyres, it sticks to the road, staying flat on fast bends and taking changes in direction, in its stride. It The SEAT Ibiza SC feels like a much bigger-engined car and there's a similar noise from the exhaust, too.

As is the norm, the SEAT Ibiza SC has ABS with EBD, while Traction Control and ESP are optional extras. The Ibiza SC has earned the maximum 5-stars for passenger protection, 4 stars for child protection and three for pedestrian protection in the EuroNCAP safety tests putting it in the top section of the supermini class. Front and side airbags are standard and curtain airbags are extra. On that subject, there are quite a few options and packs on the list, including a panoramic sunroof, rear parking sensors and heated front seats. It is easy to get carried away but not necessary - just enjoy what it does on the open road.
