2009 Seat Ibiza SportCoupe
The new Seat Ibiza SportCoupe raises the bar of sportiness on Seat’s newest model, combining impressive, vanguard exterior design with exceptional dynamic qualities and a wide range of engine options, which now includes the efficient 80 hp 1.4 and 90 hp 1.9 diesel versions. In addition, with a seven-speed DSG transmission making its debut in this segment, the Ibiza range now features a technical innovation that provides it with greater response and excellent driving comfort.
The fundamental sportiness of the Seat brand is maximised in the Seat Ibiza SportCoupe thanks to its compact coupe body. With a length of 4.034 metres and height of 1.428 metres to match its character, the proportions lend the car both agility and comfort in the city and on the motorway. Likewise, the new Volkswagen Group platform designed for this segment also favours the dynamic qualities of the new Seat Ibiza SC.
Design and precision quality are two elements that distinguish the brand’s new model from its competitors. The aesthetic and practical vision of the car created by Seat Design Director Luc Donckerwolke with the SportCoupe “Bocanegra” prototype lends unique strength and personality to the 2008 Ibiza SportCoupe.
The evolution of the “Dynamic Line” and the new “Arrow Design” concept are noteworthy – the latter characterised by a lower positioning of the headlights and radiator grille for a sportier look, and the robust look of the rear features light clusters set into prominent shoulders.
Painstaking interior and exterior detailing on the new Ibiza SC include the dashboard, the instrument panel, ventilation nozzles and central console, which houses audio equipment and the Bluetooth connection, accessed via controls located on the steering column.
