The second-generation Ibiza supermini was a huge improvement on the first SEAT product to carry the name. Volkswagen's input shows in the solidly built bodies, quality finish and paintwork, durable engines, assured handling and firm ride.
SEAT Ibiza (93-99)
Sturdy design; reassuring VW parentage; value for money
Refinement and interior space could be better

New price range:

£6,767 - £15,850

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

The second-generation Ibiza supermini was a huge improvement on the first SEAT product to carry the name. Volkswagen's input shows in the solidly built bodies, quality finish and paintwork, durable engines, assured handling and firm ride. Ibiza is a competitively priced used car that offers a less expensive but satisfying alternative to VW's own Polo.
