Seat created a facelifted version of the 2012 Ibiza

Carmaker Seat revealed the facelift 2012 Ibiza model range, the base model, the ST station wagon and the three-door SC. Last, but not least, it had prepared the sporty FR version as well. The facelifted model has a lot of interior and exterior design updates, the carmaker used more quality materials and it managed to improve the efficiency. On the outside it features a trapezoidal grille, fog lights, also a re-designed bumper and a hood that has a new style. The back of the new Ibiza is not really that different from the base model except the mirror styling updates and the taillights. On the inside it features a new steering wheel, improved instrument cluster and also a larger glove compartment.
The options the carmaker prepared for us are: a 1.2-liter engine that delivers 60 PS, a 1.2 TSI Ecomotive that delivers 105 PS and 175 Nm of torque, a 1.4-liter TSI that produces 150 PS and that is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds and can reach a top speed of 212 km/h. The list continues with a 1.2-liter TDI E Ecomotive that develops 75 PS and 180 Nm of torque and last, but not least a 2.0-liter TDI that is capable of delivering 143 PS and can reach a top speed of 210 km/h.
The power will be sent to the wheels through a five- or a six-speed manual transmission and the DSG gearbox. The model runs on 15-inch and 17-inch alloys. In terms of aerodynamics, the 2012 Seat Ibiza FR features new aerodynamics. The price was not revealed yet, but apparently it will go on sale at the middle of this year.
