Supermini buyers are now able to enter the digital age of radio in true style for as little as £149 per month on PCP, with the exciting new SEAT Ibiza 1.4 DAB Special Edition. Typical of the SEAT brand’s youthful attitude, this purposeful-looking hatch has all the in-car entertainment (ICE) features considered a ‘must’ by today’s generation of dynamic customers. That means not only DAB, which offers a host of benefits over standard analogue radio, but also an iPod connection and a CD player with MP3 compatibility.
Digital radio enables listeners in most major towns and cities in the UK to receive a huge choice of between 30 and 50 stations, which in many cases is more than double the number offered by analogue. Most of those extra stations are new and exclusive to DAB, and not available to analogue listeners.
Sound quality is also much improved, as DAB always seeks out the best signal. The difference of course is most apparent when compared with analogue AM stations, such as BBC Radio Five Live, which sound crystal clear on digital. The set is tuned by station name and not frequency, while the screen can display information such as what’s on, latest news, travel, weather, website addresses, phone numbers etc.
But the Ibiza 1.4 DAB Special Edition is not just about its 21st Century ICE. This Ibiza also features a 100 PS version of the familiar 1.4-litre 16-valve petrol engine, which is reserved exclusively for this limited edition model. With this engine, the sporty Spaniard can dash from rest to 62 mph in 11.2 seconds, before going on to a top speed of 118 mph. Average fuel economy is 42.2 mpg on the combined cycle, with CO2 emissions of 161 g/km.
Other standard features of this limited edition Ibiza, which is based on the Sport model, include stylish 16" alloy wheels, air conditioning, electric windows and door mirrors, sports suspension, a trip computer, sports seats and remote central locking.
The Ibiza 1.4 DAB Special Edition is just one of a number of special offers currently starring at your local participating SEAT UK Dealer. For more details of the Ibiza 1.4 DAB Special Edition PCP offer and all other offers, visit www.seat.co.uk
