The new SEAT Ibiza received an excellent rating after the stringent crash tests organised by the prestigious Euro NCAP organisation – 5 stars in passenger protection, 4 stars in child safety and 3 stars in pedestrian protection. Officially released today, this result places the Spanish model in a privileged position, scoring it as one of the safest cars of its segment.
The 85 hp SEAT Ibiza 1.4 16V Reference was chosen for the tests. Since the equipment level is different in every country, Euro NCAP selects the unit with the minimum level of standard safety equipment for its testing.
For the purpose of the test, the new SEAT Ibiza unit features driver and passenger airbag, head-thorax sidebag, ABS, TCS + EBA, electric front seatbelts + load limiter, three-point rear seatbelts, fasten seatbelt warning light and beeper and rear window seat Isofix anchoring points.

The initial engine range includes three petrol versions (70 hp 1.2; 85 hp 1.4 and 105 hp 1.6) and one Diesel engine (105 hp 1.9 TDI) equipped with the DPF particulate filter, although the range will soon expand to include the 80 hp 1.4 TDI and 90 hp 1.9 TDI versions. All of the engines are mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and feature outstandingly low CO2 emissions, of less than 160 g/km on the petrol versions and less than 120 g/km on the Diesel models.
