The Seat Ibiza is a rightfully successful small hatchback based heavily on the VW Polo. Which means an excellent chassis and engine options but without the big price tag. Easy to use and cheap to run the Ibiza is a sensible, practical choice in this sector.
If you are looking for a small hatch in this sector, the Ibiza is a cool and sensible choice. A great range of VW petrol and diesel power plants combine with incisive handling and a roomy, comfortable interior.
Go petrol with the Ibiza. The diesel power plants command a premium of around £1000 and these engines are getting to a point where reliability can be an issue.
The 1.4 petrol is more than adequate for such a small, light car. Trim-wise, we recommend the SE model, as this should have air-conditioning and all you need, save the alloy wheels.
Pay in the region of £7,300 for a 3 year old SE model with the 1.4 petrol engine. A similar diesel model should cost no more than £800 more.
Depreciation is steady on these cars as they benefit from the 'small car premium.’ There is no best time to buy.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Seat Ibiza you would aim to buy a 5 year old and you can keep it for some time before needing to worry about a big drop in value.
Diesel Seat Ibiza cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Petrol Seat Ibiza cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Seat Ibiza cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
