2010 Seat Ibiza FR TDI news, pictures, and information
The new 143 hp SEAT Ibiza FR 2.0 TDI CR• New Diesel version, the most powerful in its §egmènt
• This Ibiza platform is mated wîth the 2.0 TDI engine for the first time
• Only 119 g/km of emissions wîth excellent performance levels
The SEAT Ibiza FR has extended its engine line-up wîth the arrival of the 143 hp (105 kW) 2.0 TDI variant equipped wîth common rail technology and DPF particulate filter, making the Ibiza the first VW Group model to mount the 2.0 TDI engine on this platform, which by the way is the most powerful Diesel in its §egmènt.
With these credentials the new Ibiza FR TDI is a full-fledged sporty vehicle, but at the same time committed to environmental sustainability. Its emissions level of 119 g/km is unique on a car of this nature, and is a considerable reduction by 20% compared to the previous FR version equipped wîth the 130 hp 1.9 TDI engine. Thanks to this low figure, buyers in Spain are exempt from paying registration tax.
Brilliant performanceFitted wîth the new 2.0 TDI CR engine, the new Ibiza FR delivers performance levels to match its distinctly sporty set-up. Top speed is 210 km/h, 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is 8.2 seconds and in-gear acceleration is equally swift. But these figures do not imply greater consumption; on the contrary, the new Ibiza FR registers an average figure of only 4.6 litres for every 100 km, and naturally fully complies wîth EÚ-5 emissions legislation.
Careful work has been done to the new Ibiza FR TDI chassis and suspension ratings in order to tap its power potential, resulting in effective performance to match the model's sporty philosophy. Much of the merit goes to the electronic XDS system, which works as a self-blocking mechanism to provide constant traction capacity.
Exclusive exterior styling
The same as wîth the petrol version, the new SEAT Ibiza FR will be available in the SC and five-door body styling, and in both choices its design features set it apart from the rest of the range. The new FR version features specific bumpers, front honeycomb grilles, wîth a chrome frame surrounding the one in the centre, the characteristic Arrow Design, silver colour door mirrors, 215/40 tyres on specific 17 inch wheel rims, and a twin lateral tailpipe.
The interior also conveys the car's racing nature wîth shiny black inserts on certain dashboard elements such as the instrument panel binnacle hood or the ventilation nozzle bezels. Other contributing elements to its sporty looks are a specific instrument display that carries the FR logo, the sporty §teering wheel design and the seat design, whose contours and stitched upholstery are different than on the rest of the range and sport the FR logo on the backrests of the front seats.
Available throughout the official SEAT sales network, the new Ibiza FR TDI signals a considerable evolution in terms of performance, noise levels and driving comfort compared to the previous Ibiza FR equipped wîth the 130 hp 1.9 TDI pump injector engine.

Attractive optional equipment line-up
The FR version features an attractive list of optional elements that completes the list of standard equipment.
SEAT's new vehicle can come equipped wîth the Carbono package, which enhances the exclusiveness of the interior wîth an instrument panel binnacle hood, §teering wheel spokes and radio casing wîth a carbon fibre finish.

Another novelty recently introduced on the Ibiza range is the possibility of adding leather upholstery to the sporty seats, an optional element that is not only available on the Spanish brand's two sportiest models, but on the Style and Sport trims as well.
Furthermore, the Ibiza FR is available wîth the new adaptor for the new generation of portable Tom Tom navigators, which joins the current adaptor to plug in the Tom Tom One V4 navigator.
