How much does the cheapest Seat Ibiza cost and what does it bring? "Much" more than before

Seat Ibiza cheaper

All cars have risen quite a bit in price in the last two years. The microchip crisis and rising costs have been some of the reasons, but not the only ones. In any case, today we were wondering how much does the cheapest version of the Seat Ibiza, a utility vehicle that has sold like hotcakes for three decades in Spain.

The Ibiza is the cheapest car that it offers us Seat. How much does the access version cost? What equipment does it include? What engine is it associated with? And already, what price do the more balanced versions of the Seat Ibiza have? And the most expensive and powerful of all? Let's see it.

The cheapest Seat Ibiza

The starting price of the Spanish utility vehicle, which by the way is also manufactured in Spain (in Martorell), is $14.450. It corresponds to the finish called ReferenceXM. It is true that it is currently more expensive than a few years ago, but it must also be recognized that it comes better equipped.

For example, we can highlight the digital instrument panel with an 8-inch screen, the EcoLED headlights, the lane maintenance assistant, a fatigue detector or an 8,25-inch touch screen for the multimedia system. Of course, with the always unattractive sheet metal wheels and hubcaps.

One detail to keep in mind is that for only 200 euros (14.650 euros) plus we can make the leap to the Reference XL finish. For that little extra, cruise control, rear parking sensor, fog lights and two-part folding rear seats are added. Honestly, I think it's very worth it.

What we like least about the Seat Ibiza Reference (both “XM” and “XL”) is that can only be configured with a engine, and it is not very solvent if we want to go out on the road from time to time. It's about the engine 1.0 MPI with 80 HP, linked to a 5-speed manual transmission. It is a three-cylinder without turbo, this being a handicap when overtaking.

The most sensible version of the Ibiza: Equipment, engine and price

As a general rule, Spanish citizens tend to go one step further in terms of equipment and engine. In this case, it certainly seems quite sensible to me, but the bill increases.

Probably the most sensible version of the Seat Ibiza is in the Style finish. In the Style XM option we already have Full LED front and rear headlights, cruise control, full link to synchronize our phone with the multimedia screen, front fog lights with cornering function and, finally, 15 inch alloy wheels.

All this for a starting price of $16.270, although again with the inefficient 1.0 MPI 80 HP engine. At least, with this level of equipment we can now upgrade to a more powerful engine, probably the ideal one for this car. I mean the block 1.0 TSI 110 hp, which is turbocharged and offers many more guarantees if we leave the city. But of course, it's not free, it adds to the bill almost 2.000 euros more…From €18.250.

As in the case of the Reference finish, we have a superior variant for little money that is very interesting. Is called Seat Ibiza Style XL and has a supplement of 210 euros that will not hurt the client too much. In that case, a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, electric folding and heated mirrors, light and rain sensors and rear electric windows are added to the previous one. If we choose it with the 110 HP gasoline engine it is 18.460 euros.

What is the most expensive Seat Ibiza?

Finally, why not look for the most expensive Seat Ibiza? According to the Seat configurator, the most expensive Ibiza is the FR. Specifically the Ibiza FR XL, which equips more aggressive bumpers, firmer suspension, 17-inch wheels, driving modes, front center armrest, navigation system with 9,2-inch screen, 10,25-inch upper digital panel, wireless charger and cruise control adaptive.

This equipment level can be combined with the 1.0 TSI 110 HP engine which we like so much, but there is also a more performance-oriented and stimulating option. We refer to the 1.5 TSI, a four-cylinder turbo that increases power to the 150 CV. The performance is increased considerably and, in addition, it is also compulsorily combined with a double clutch transmission, the 7-speed DSG.

As always, everything has a price. While the Seat Ibiza FR XL with a 110 HP TSI engine costs 20.420 euros, the 1.5 TSI with the same equipment it rises to 25.769 euros. Yes, we already know that it is a high rate for, after all, a lifelong utility vehicle. In any case, there are few models in this B segment that can be equipped with gasoline engines in this power range.
