The new SEAT Ibiza Cupra displays the essence of the SEAT brand in its purest form - a stunning design, amazing performance and state-of-the-art technology come together in the Ibiza Cupra to create the most dynamic package in its class. With its compact format and high level of functionality, the SEAT Ibiza Cupra is an enjoyable, dynamic car for everyday use. Performance is scintillating - accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in just 6.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 228 km/h - and yet exceptionally efficient, with average fuel consumption of just 5.9 litres/100 km. Market launch is scheduled for February 2013.
The state-of-the-art 1.4 TSI power unit is a compact piece of hi-tech with dual forced induction via supercharger and turbocharger, as well as direct injection. Its 132 kW / 180 PS and torque of 250 Newton metres guarantee exceptionally refined performance, while a unique sound actuator in the exhaust system gives an extra sporty sound characteristic. The seven-speed DSG transmission with its extremely short shift times can now also be operated via paddles mounted behind the steering wheel.
