Seat Ibiza S Copa: value for money
The new Seat Ibiza S Copa is based on the existing, entry-level S specification, and is offered in all three Ibiza bodystyles: SC three-door, five-door and ST estate.
Extra items of kit include 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, front fog lights with cornering function, and electric door mirrors. The latter are are now finished in the same colour as the rest of the bodywork, as are the door handles.
The S Copa also has air conditioning, which are already fitted on the Ibiza S.
A 74bhp 1.2-litre turbodiesel – with CO2 emissions as low as 92g/km and claimed fuel economy in excess of 80mpg – is available for all three bodystyles, while the three- and five-door models are also available with a 69bhp 1.2-litre petrol unit.
Prices start at just £9,995 for the 1.2 petrol Ibiza S Copa SC three-door – a bargain given that the regular Ibiza S 1.2 SC has an RRP of £10,925.
