The new Cordoba is a masterpiece of modern styling. Its wedge shape and rounded contours have a dynamic look reflecting its sporty appeal and performance. The SEAT family face is recognisable from its sister model, the Ibiza, but its elongated shape and neat rear with stylised light clusters give it a personality all of its own. The whole look is complemented by 10 classy paint colours including eight metallic finishes, body coloured bumpers and smart steel or alloy wheels.

Cordoba S comes with a choice of either a 1.4 75 PS petrol engine or an advanced, torquey and frugal 1.9 TDi 100 PS engine benefiting from advanced Pumpe Düse technology. Standard S specification includes air conditioning, single CD player, electric front windows, remote central locking, digital clock and outside temperature gauge. The front seats are height adjustable with height and tilt headrests. The rear seat has three headrests, three three-point seat belts and can be split-folded to create an even more roomy and flexible luggage space than is provided by the voluminous 475 litre boot. There is also plenty of storage space in the cabin with door pockets, glovebox, central console and under-dash cubby holes for personal effects and handbooks, a hidden storage box under the driver’s seat and a map pocket in the front seatback. Other comfort features include driver and passenger sunvisors with mirrors, a central sunvisor over the rear view mirror, cup holder, pollen filter, air re-circulation feature and interior light with delay.
