The most successful model in the Spanish based automaker’s history, the Ibiza, is currently celebrating its 30th year since it has been introduced.
Seat has managed to sell almost 5 million units of the Ibiza in its 30 years of life and over four generations and the carmaker is now celebrating the three decades of the small B-segment hatchback with a special anniversary model, which will be introduced at the end of June. No details on the special 30th anniversary Seat Ibiza have been announced so far as the company is currently keeping the model a surprise.
The first generation of the Seat Ibiza has been officially introduced back in 1984, with a front engine and front-wheel drive. The model has been kept in production since 1993, when the second generation has been introduced. Back in 2002, Seat has pulled the wraps off the third-gen of the Ibiza and in 2008 this has been replaced by the newest version up to date. The 4th-gen Seat Ibiza is produced in Martorell, Spain, in three body styles, 3-door hatchback, 5-door hatchback and 5-door estate, coming with a choice of 8 engines and two transmissions. A future generation of the model will probably be introduced over the next couple of years.
