Ibiza Cupra puts you in the hot SEAT

It's only fitting that a car named Ibiza should have a 'hot' version. Just in is the hot hatch Cupra version of SEAT's Ibiza.

This turbo-charged 1.4-litre three-door, pictured, summons a massive 180bhp – not bad for a car costing €22,875 ex-works.

It hits 100kmh in 6.9 seconds but manages to keep fuel consumption to a claimed 5.9 litres.

There's a 7spd DSG gearbox, XDS electronic differential (helps handling and steering on corners) high-performance brakes, but the road tax is decent at €280 (139g/km).

SEAT claims the Ibiza Cupra costs thousands less than rivals, going so far as to claim its massive power comes at the lowest cost of any new car on sale right now.
