The SEAT Ibiza FR has extended its engine line-up with the arrival of the 143 hp (105 kW) 2.0 TDI variant equipped with common rail technology and DPF particulate filter, making the Ibiza the first VW Group model to mount the 2.0 TDI engine on this platform, which by the way is the most powerful Diesel in its segment.
With these credentials the new Ibiza FR TDI is a full-fledged sporty vehicle, but at the same time committed to environmental sustainability. Its emissions level of 119 g/km is unique on a car of this nature, and is a considerable reduction by 20% compared to the previous FR version equipped with the 130 hp 1.9 TDI engine. Thanks to this low figure, buyers in Spain are exempt from paying registration tax.
Exclusive exterior styling
The same as with the petrol version, the new SEAT Ibiza FR TDI will be available in the SC and five-door body styling, and in both choices its design features set it apart from the rest of the range. The new FR version features specific bumpers, front honeycomb grilles, with a chrome frame surrounding the one in the centre, the characteristic Arrow Design, silver colour door mirrors, 215/40 tyres on specific 17 inch wheel rims, and a twin lateral tailpipe.
The interior also conveys the car's racing nature with shiny black inserts on certain dashboard elements such as the instrument panel binnacle hood or the ventilation nozzle bezels. Other contributing elements to its sporty looks are a specific instrument display that carries the FR logo, the sporty steering wheel design and the seat design, whose contours and stitched upholstery are different than on the rest of the range and sport the FR logo on the backrests of the front seats.
Available throughout the official SEAT sales network, the new SEAT Ibiza FR TDI signals a considerable evolution in terms of performance, noise levels and driving comfort compared to the previous SEAT Ibiza FR equipped with the 130 hp 1.9 TDI pump injector engine.
