The decision on a car demands careful customer assessment, whether it be an individual or a company. It is essential to take into account not only the purchase price but also maintenance costs and residual value over time. This is why SEAT has put these crucial elements at the heart of its strategy when developing the new Ibiza.
SEAT’s efficient engines ensure reduced maintenance costs, and the price/equipment ratio puts the New SEAT Ibiza among the best options in the market. The maintenance periods in the after-sales service are scheduled to make SEAT, the best investment. “Thanks to its dynamic and timeless design, its improved interior roominess combined with the advanced technology coming from higher segments, the new generation of SEAT legendary model will bring the Brand to the next level in the Fleet industry.” says SEAT Vice-President for Marketing and Sales Wayne Griffiths. In other words, it does not only give total driving pleasure but also a high level of added value at each stage of the vehicle’s life cycle.
The new Ibiza most certainly has the best design SEAT has ever produced in the A0 segment. The challenge of doing justice to more than three decades of history and its importance as the main pillar of the Spanish brand has been passed with flying colours. Because it doesn’t just have all SEAT’s characteristic brushstrokes, but also characteristics that take it to the next level, marking a huge step in the brand’s expression of design. The undeniable proof of all of this is the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 with which the new SEAT Ibiza has just awarded.Read more
