About Seat Ibiza
The Ibiza Mk3 (Typ 6L) was the second Ibiza generation model to be fully produced under Volkswagen Group ownership. Built on the same PQ24 platform as the Volkswagen Polo Mk4 (Typ 9N), it is styled by the Italian designer Walter de Silva, intended to have a sporty, performance image. The model line up includes two hot hatch variants, the Ibiza FR and Cupra, which compensate for the lack of Polo hot hatch variants (the Polo GTI wasn’t launched until 2006).
Its production was initially focused in SEAT’s main plant in Martorell, Spain, however in September 2002 a decision was taken by the Volkswagen Group, i.e. SEAT’s parent company, that a part of it (up to 50,000 units annually) would be transferred to Volkswagen’s own plant in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Apart from the more aggressive styling, it was larger than the previous two generations, with room for five adults, and a spacious (if rather short) boot. The standard trim level on this model is noticeably higher than previous models. This is regarded by some magazines to be the best supermini, with What Car? magazine calling it “Car of the Year” in 2003, and their best “Supermini of the Year” for three years in a row.
The SEAT Ibiza Mk3 has also been used for several purposes, from police cars to rally cars
The Ibiza Mk3 pre-facelift model was available with the Award, S, SX, Stylance, Reference, Signo, Stella, Sport, FR and Cupra R trim levels.
The facelifted third generation Ibiza was made from 2006 to 2008. In 2006, slight cosmetic changes were made to both the interior and exterior, but is otherwise the model is very similar to the original one.
