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.
