The facelift of the famous Seat Ibiza is refreshed with new interior technologies and many subtle exterior changes
Along with the Arona SUV, the cars are quite optimized, but the Ibiza is more focused on technological updates.
The exterior design has been left largely intact, but the LED lights are now standard at both ends, there are three new versions of alloy wheels. The model name is written with “handwritten” inscriptions on the back. Two new colors are also available: Sapphire Blue and Asphalt Blue.
The new Ibiza replaces its integrated touchscreen with a 20% larger, Leon-inspired “floating” item, available in 8.25-inch or 9.2-inch sizes, depending on performance. Located closer to the driver’s eye line, it is said to improve both ergonomics and safety.
The top-of-the-line FR Sport and Xcellence also receive a 10.25-inch digital display on the dashboard. All variants receive a multifunctional leather steering wheel made of nappa, illuminated air vents and a soft touch on the dashboard.
The smartphone’s mirroring feature is equipped as standard as part of the move to enhance the connectivity offered by Ibiza. The voice recognition capability – activated by saying “Hola Hola” ☺️ – aims to make the system work faster.
Additional new features include a pair of USB-C ports on the front and a built-in SIM card that allows access to Seat’s eCall emergency response service and other Internet-based features, including live traffic data and gas station prices.
Modern technology is becoming the standard
2021 Ibiza complies with the updated Arona for advanced driver aids, receiving a “semi-autonomous” travel support function, lane maintenance assistant, high beam assistant, road sign recognition and blind spot warning.
