Power: 178 bhp (132.7 kW) @ 5,800 rpm

Re: Seat Ibiza Cupra

It is ugly and it has that dull sounding VAG turbo motor so it's not off to a good start with me..

Re: Seat Ibiza Cupra

Impressive power and close to being cool but just falling short.

Too fussy styling is a bit too in-yer-face to be cool and the interior looks vile.

I suspect the hot Saxo brigade would think it is the dog's danglies and therefore cool as far as they are concerned though. All the more reason to tip it just into uncool.

Decent enough little car, but not really cool.

Park it next to an Abarth Punto and you'll see...

Mrs R has an Ibiza Sport and my bro has a new Leon TDi. They're both cracking cars.

Hideous Jelly mould styling, Bland interior.
A salesman at our local Seat dealer mentioned to me once that Seat are VAG's "performance brand, like Alfa are to Fiat"
