The all-new generation of Volkswagen TDI engines, fitted with common-rail technology instead of pump-injectors, is spreading through the corporate family. Next June, Seat is getting the new 1.6-liter diesel
engines under the hoods of the Ibiza. The new 90hp version, which is the detuned version found in the Golf BlueMotion
, reduces the Ibiza's fuel consumpting from 4.5 to 4.2 l/100 km (52.3 to 56 mpg U.S.), and has a Diesel Particulate Filter as standard. The new engine reduces CO2
emissions down to 109 g/km, which makes the car exempt from registration tax under the Spanish legislation, and it's also Euro V compliant. Prices start at €14,480 in Spain.
