SEAT Ibiza Good Stuff Limited Edition Partners Shakira’s European Tour

Published by on Jun 29th, 2010, No Comments

What’s SEAT doing with Shakira? The launch of the car maker’s limited edition Ibiza Good Stuff in the UK takes off from the pop diva’s forthcoming European tour and has been named after her Good Stuff concerts.

The Columbian pop sensation-inspired Ibiza GS has been built on the same platform as the popular Ibiza 1.4 SE, and would be rolled out in hues of Candy White or Speed Blue. To be available in SC and five-door variants, the limited edition beauty would sport 16-inch Sonda alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, TomTom satellite navigation, an 8GB iPod Nano, a Bluetooth hands-free phone system, automatic climate control, power windows
and mirrors, and a six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system. The car would run powered by an 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp) 1.4-liter petrol engine connected to a five-speed manual transmission.

The car offers 85 PS at 5,000 rpm, and would have the capability to race to 62 mph in just 11.8 seconds – 12.2 seconds for the 5dr. Prices would start at £12,300 for the SC and £12,710 for the five-door.

Environment concerns too are taken care of with CO2 emissions locked at 142 g/km. The Ibiza Good Stuff’s fuel consumption would be something around 47.1 mpg. Prices start at £12,300 for the SC and £12,710 for the five-door. The Shakira connection is extended beyond just the Good Stuff name.

SEAT will be bang in with the tour sponsorship and multimedia advertising campaign around the Good Stuff model, and also is believed to be an active supporter of Shakira’s initiatives for her Barefoot Foundation .

Seat IBE to hit the Production Floor

Published by on Mar 10th, 2010, 1 Comment

Sometimes the national government can bring about pleasant changes which are never just anticipated and the Spanish ruling party pushing Seat to produce the IBE all-electric commuter is a thorough example. Seat IBE was showcased at the Geneva Motor Show last week, but, no comments were made on its production future.

Seat IBE Concept 1

Spain is one of the leading nations when it comes to developing renewable energy resources and a lot of expenditure has been done to see green commuters on the road. The nation hopes that 30% of its 2010 energy needs will be met with these renewable sources. As far as the Seat IBE goes, the concept was in Geneva staging a 75-kiloWatt motor capable of producing 200Nm of torque which helped the car pelt to 50Km/h in 3.4 seconds. Given that VW is the parent organization which owns Seat, we are hoping for some real good features on the production ready Seat IBE.

SEAT Ibiza FR Diesel TDI 1

SEAT was tremendously successful with its Leon FR TDI and that has motivated the company to announce the Ibiza FR Diesel for the UK market — as it aims to delve deeper on the success of its hatchback sales numbers. FR models are the perfect combination between “performance and outstanding economy” and that is what the SEAT Ibiza FR TDI will strive to deliver. The four wheeler will be offered in three and five door models and will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0L commonrail turbodiesel engine capable of churning 143 hp at 320Nm of torque. The engine will allow the three door variant to pelt from 0 to 62 mph in 8.2 seconds (8.3 for the 5-door) with an overall top speed of 130mph (129 for the 5-door). The economy numbers are also impressive at 62.7mpg on a combined cycle and the CO2 emissions will be 119g/km. Going on sale in March, the SEAT Ibiza FR Diesel will cost £16,465.

Styling Upgrades for the Facelifted SEAT Leon Cupra by JE Design

Published by on Sep 3rd, 2009, No Comments

The facelifted SEAT Leon Cupra has only been around for sometime and JE Design did not exactly like what it saw and hence came up with a tuning package to make it an untamable racing machine.


The kit picks up the horsepower of the car to 285 hp with 380Nm of torque and this has been achieved thanks to a revised ECU module which solely costs €1,499. Consequently, the Leon Cupra can now pelt from 0 to 100km/h in 5.9 seconds and can hit a top speed of 261km/h. With a better engine, you need better cooling and hence there is a stainless steel sports exhaust system which individually costs €899. The suspension of the Cupra has been lowered by using a coilover technology which brings down the ride height by 40mm and 19-inch gloss black multi-spoke wheels equipped with high performance tires (all costing €2,930) complete the package.

SEAT Ibiza ECOMOTIVE Does 2.9l/100km

Published by on May 7th, 2009, No Comments

Environmentally conscious drivers are starting to demand better and more fuel efficient cars. With that in mind the Spanish folks from Seat have just announced that their Ibiza ECOMOTIVE managed to set a world record for fuel efficiency and has the ability to drive over 1,500 km on a single tank of gas. A great example of efficiency and technologically advanced capabilities, the best part is that it’s not even considered a hybrid and it goes for a consumption rate of 2.9 liters per 100km. Seat said that “optimized streamlining, weight reduction and modifications to the 80 hp 1.4 TDI” (quite an engine) was needed in getting those numbers.

Published by on Mar 21st, 2009, 3 Comments

The future for SEAT and what the firm is likely to dish out in the coming years has been what company’s Erich Schmitt has been talking about. Apparently high on their agenda— launching the SEAT Ibiza ST (Sports Tourer), the rumored car has been finally confirmed officially. Expected to be available somewhere next year, it is safe to assume that the new Ibiza ST is a far more luxurious, spacious and powerful version of the base model that is now on offer. Rumors have it that under the hood there’s a VW 1.4 liter TFSI, twin-turbocharged engine mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox, that develops 160 hp. Looks pretty awesome, isn’t it? [ & ]
