SEAT New Ibiza FR And Leon Cupra Facelift Unveiled
To get straight to the point, the Ibiza FR will be powered by a 1.4-liter TSI twin charger unit that develops around 150 horsepower and is particularly aimed at reducing fuel consumption and emissions. SEAT says this powerplant perfectly complies with Euro 5 regulations, a fact that emphasizes the idea that it is particularly designed for reduced consumption and emissions. The engine is mated to a seven-speed DSG transmission with steering wheel shift paddles.
A thing worth mentioning is that the car boasts SEAT's XDS system, an electronic function that improves handling when the car loses traction by working with the ESP and braking the wheel that loses grip. Other highlights include TCS, EBA, ABS, Hill Hold Control, low tire pressure warning, driver and passenger airbags, head-cheat airbag, trip computer, cruise control, climate control, CD radio with MP3 + 6 speakers + Aux-in connection, sports suspension and cornering foglights, all of them offered as standard.
The Cupra on the other hand is fairly impressive in appearance, sporting 18-inch wheels, a redesigned front bumper, polished steel oval tailpipe and black encased door mirrors.
Power comes from a 2.0-liter TSI engine that generates 240 horsepower that pushes the car from a standstill to 100 km/h in only 6.4 seconds. The new Cupra is capable of reaching a maximum speed of 247 km/h (153.5 mph), with fuel consumption going as much as 8.3 l/100km (28.3 mpg).
Standard features include the XDS system, ABS and TCS, ESP with EBA emergency braking, low tyre pressure warning, driver and passenger airbag, side airbag and head airbag, climate control, cornering foglights, trip computer, cruise control, sports suspension and CD radio + MP3 + 8 speakers + Aux-in.
