SEAT’s customer offer of free insurance on new Ibiza models has been extended to run through the summer. The offer applies to all new Ibizas registered between 1 July and 30 September 2003 purchased through participating dealers and applies to drivers aged between 25 and 80.
The Ibiza is a range of sporty 3- and 5- door hatchbacks with a model to suit all tastes. The sprightly 64 PS 1.2-litre petrol 5-door version was What Car? magazine’s choice not only to top the Best Supermini list, but to be awarded its coveted Car of the Year 2003 title. But the range doesn’t stop there. The Ibiza S, which gains ABS in conjunction with emergency brake assistance over the base model, is available with either a 1.4 75 PS petrol engine, a 1.9 100 PS TDi engine, or the recently introduced, advanced, frugal 1.4 litre 75 PS TDi engine.
Moving up the range the Ibiza SE gains alloy wheels, height adjustable seats, climate control, electric windows all round, front foglamps and alarm. It also comes with the 1.4 75 PS petrol engine but has the option of a more powerful 100 PS 1.9 litre TDi. The final specification, Ibiza Sport, boasts the most powerful diesel engine available in a supermini, the 1.9 TDi 130 PS linked to a 6-speed gearbox for sporty and dynamic driving experience. The other available Sport engine is a 2.0 litre 115 PS petrol option which is new for the 2004 model year. In keeping with its name, Sport specification includes 16" alloys, leather steering wheel, gearknob and handbrake, front side airbags, climate control, ABS, EBA and traction control.
Add free insurance to good looks inside and out, high specifications including air-conditioning and CD player as standard, 3 year/60,000 mile warranty, 12 year anti-perforation warranty, 5-years SEAT Assistance and prices starting at £8000 on the road, and the Ibiza is truly an award-winning package of value and style.
* Offer applies to UK mainland only (excluding Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man) and is available to retail customers only.
