Description

The fourth generation Ibiza (Typ 6J) was a B-Segment car launched in 2008 and facelifted in 2012 and 2015. The car was based on the VW Group’s PQ25 platform, like the VW Polo and the Audi A1, but featured a unique “arrow design” styling created by Luc Donckerwolke.

The updated Ibiza MK4 Cupra (facelift) launched in 2012. It was fitted with the same 1.4 TSI engine, producing 180 hp (132 kw) of power and 250 Nm of torque, mated with a 7 speed DSG gearbox (dual clutch). Thanks to extensive optimisation on the engine management system for better performance and efficiency, the car accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 6,9 seconds and could reach a top speed of 229 km/h (142 mph). The engine featured both turbocharged and supercharged forced induction, while the car was equiped with ESP (electronic stability control), TCS, anti-slip regulation (ASR), engine drag torque control (MSR), high performance brakes, stiffened suspension (MacPherson-strut front axle and torsion-beam rear suspension, 10 mm lower ride height, stiffer mapping of the shock absorbers) and an XDS self locking electronic differential at the front.

Visually the facelifted model featured redesigned bumper, new headlight graphics (bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights), 17 inch alloy wheels, black gloss mirror caps, tinted windows, new LED tailight graphics, matt black diffuser and trapezoidal tailpipe. Inside the car featured new flat bottom steering wheel with shift paddles for the DSG gearbox, sporty seats in two tone leather, aluminium pedals and updated infotainment system with 5 inch screen.

In 2016, the car was replaced by the Seat Ibiza MK4 Cupra 192 (facelift) that was fitted with a new, turbocharged 1,8 liter engine.
