Pics Released Of Upcoming Seat Ibiza FR

When we’re looking at more and more hot hatches with 300bhp or more, a new hot hatch with 150bhp is going to struggle to make an impression. However, that is the struggle faced by the new Seat Ibiza FR.

Powered by a 1.4-litre TSI engine, the stylish new FR will have 150bhp fed to the front wheels via a seven-speed DSG transmission. The FR will also benefit from the addition of Seat’s new XDS electronic stability system that works together with ESP to improve performance when traction is lost by braking the wheel that loses grip. The new engine is said to be provide greater elasticity, brilliant performance and lower fuel buy fluconazole 150 mg online consumption figures and emissions levels, and also complies with EU-5 emissions laws.

On the inside you get a scattering of FR logos, a new steering wheel with built-in DSG shift paddles and sportier seats. Standard equipment is generous and includes ESP, TCS + EBA, ABS, Hill Hold Control, low tyre pressure warning, driver and passenger airbags, head-chest airbag, trip computer, cruise control, climate control, CD radio with MP3 + 6 speakers + Aux-in connection, sports suspension and cornering foglights.

No news of official performance figures or prices for the Ibiza FR just yet, but I’m sure the junior hot hatch will be offering plenty of value for money.
