Seat Ibiza ST estate (2010) first pictures

Published: 04 February 2010

This is Seat's new compact estate, the Ibiza ST. It will be unveiled at the 2010 Geneva motor show, and sales start in the summer.

It’s all about the space – presumably the Seat Ibiza ST has a bigger boot?

Of course. The ST is 18cm longer than the regular Ibiza hatch, so there’s 430 litres of cargo capacity, up from 292 litres. It’s not a match for the Clio Sport Tourer (439) or Seat's in-house Skoda Fabia Estate rival (480), but folding the split rear seats does liberate some extra space.

The ST is the third model in the Ibiza range – after the regular hatch and three-door SC – so the front end remains the same, but there's a higher roofline and a longer rear overhang. Under the bonnet there's a choice of six engines (three petrol and three diesel), two of which are new to the Ibiza: a 1.2 TDI and 1.2 TSI.
