2011 Seat Ibiza ST news, pictures, and information
SEAT Ibiza ST – compact dynamics with great usability• Sporty estate is the third model in the Ibiza line-up
• Expressive design wîth plenty of load capacity
• Dynamic driving fun wîth high safety levels
• Six efficient engines, new 1.2 TDI and 1.2 TSI
With a World Premiere at the Geneva Motorshow, SEAT is pushing forward wîth its product offensive – the Ibiza ST is the third model to join the successful Spanish line-up. The compact estate car is the perfect vehicle for a youthful and sporty lifestyle, bringing together the brand's most powerful characteristics – it is emotional and well-designed, it is dynamic and efficient, it is easy to use and financially attainable. SEAT will deliver the Ibiza ST in six modern engine variants and wîth a broad palette of equipment and technologies. Market launch is planned for early summer.
The stylists at SEAT Design have taken the highly functional concept of the Ibiza ST and clad it in the Spanish brand's unique design language. Despite the estate layout and generous load capacity, it retains the youthful, sporty character of the Ibiza range. The roofline stretches rearwards, the rear overhang is integrated perfectly into the overall design and the tight span of its flanks lends tautness to its proportions. The front end bears the hallmark SEAT 'arrow design'; wîth the rear end receiving a new look courtesy of the split rear light clusters.
With a length of 4.23 metres, the Ibiza ST is no less than 18 centimetres longer than the Ibiza. This creates ample load capacity to satisfy all the requirements of a sporty and mobile lifestyle. The base capacity of 430 litres is already comparatively generous, and can be increased in stages by folding the split rear seat. Engineers paid particularly close attention to the optimal width and low height of the load opening. Overall, the bodyshell is finished to the high levels of precision and stiffness characteristic of all SEAT models.
The interior of the Ibiza ST is impressively spacious, wîth an accomplished and high quality character. The designers and engineers paid close attention to the tiniest detail; every single element is functional, practical to use and meticulously crafted, as evidenced by the high material quality and tight tolerances. The cockpit feels taut. Circular air vents, a short gear stick – the emotional character expressed by the design of the Ibiza ST is clearly evident in the interior, too.
Sporty dynamics wîth a high degree of efficiency is par for the course for every SEAT. The basis for this is delivered by state-of-the-art engines, wîth the Ibiza ST offering a choice of three petrol and three TDI units wîth common-rail injection. Four of the six engines operate wîth direct injection and turbocharging. They span an output range of between 51 and 77 kW (70 to 105 hp). Particular highlights include the exceptionally efficient 1.2 TDI and 1.2 TSI.
Another guarantee of agility and dynamics comes from the precise and safe running gear. Together wîth the excellent equipment of the three model lines Reference, Style and Sport, as well as the broad range of hi-tech optional equipment – such as the dual-clutch transmission – this makes the Ibiza ST the one to beat in the small estate car §egmènt. Especially as excellent value for money is an integral part of the youthful character that defines this kind of SEAT.Source - Seat
