The range-topping version of the Ibiza, the Cupra, has received a facelift recently from Seat.
The Seat Ibiza Cupra facelift has been officially unveiled over the web. The model has received some minor visual changes and it is bringing standard features such as the bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels and so on. The cabin is bringing a new steering wheel, borrowed from its larger brother, the Leon, along with an updated instrument panel, new air vents and so on.
Seat has also added a new look for the infotainment system, which now has support for the Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink. Changes performed to the range-topping version of the supermini are stooping here so if you were expecting some minor modifications, you will be disappointed. However, we have to mention the discontinuing of the 1.4 liter TSI in favor of the larger 1.8 liter TSI and output has increased from 180 HP and 250 Nm of torque to 192 HP and 320 Nm of torque.
The Seat Ibiza Cupra facelift needs 6.7 seconds in order to reach 100 km/h (62 mph), meaning 0.3 seconds faster than before, with a top speed of 235 km/h (146 mph). The average fuel consumption stands at 6 liters / 100 km, or the equivalent of 47 mpg UK / 39.2 mpg US. Seat hasn’t announced any official pricing details on the “new” Ibiza Cupra so, with the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show coming in in just 2 weeks, chances are we will see it live.
