The SEAT Ibiza is one of the icons of the history of the Spanish car market and this year it's up to renew its fifth generation and that will be released soon (It is expected to be in the month of June). It is not bad eh?
They have sold over 5,4 million units to date, and surely there will be many more because by the SEAT León, Ibiza has the largest numbers of production of the Spanish brand. approximately 20 % of its production is for the domestic market, and 80 % remaining is exported to 75 countries. He's been on the market nothing more and nothing less than 33 years old, and was the weapon he used the brand for internationalization.
All generations of Ibiza are designed, developed and produced in the facilities of the brand in Martorell (Barcelona), and the fifth will follow the same guidelines. Every day, about 700 Ibizas leave the plant to the different markets.
A curiosity that shows the evolution of the model is that it has reduced its fuel consumption by half when it was launched ago 33 years old. Of the 7,8 liters 100 kilometers to the only 3,6 liters of a TDI Ibiza 90 CV’s.
Also do not forget the world of competition, where the SEAT Ibiza has written his story also. Their biggest challenges are being the official car of the Barcelona Olympics 1992 and its 3 FIA World Rally titles the years 96, 97 and 98.
The fifth generation comes bursting and drawing style and jerk of his older brother, the SEAT León. aggressive design that aims at helping the new offensive of the Spanish brand has also begun to open up a gap in the fashion market, the SUV's with its first model the SEAT Ateca, and the next to come, the SEAT Arona will be smaller than the Ateca and will be released in late 2017.
It is less for the Geneva Motor Show, where the brand will show worldwide. No doubt that it will be one of the photos that attendees will want to take. As we can see in Switzerland, remember the 4 previous generations with this video:
