Double-Whammy for SEAT at WhatCar? Awards
We are delighted that the New Ibiza and Arona Models have been announced Category Winners in the WhatCar? Car Of The Year Awards 2018


WhatCar? Car Of The Year 2018 Best Small SUV: Category Winner

Seat Arona 1.0 TSI 95 SE Technology


Category winner

"The gold medal for small SUVs has to go to the Arona. While it’s pricier than the Vitara to buy outright, great finance deals mean the Arona is actually the more affordable car if you’re paying in monthly instalments.
And while the Arona’s interior isn’t as classy as the Q2’s, it’s still a comfortable and nicely designed place to be, with all the equipment you really need.
The cherry on top is a range of personalisation options that allow you to make your Arona feel special. Given that SUVs are often bought for their style, this is something many buyers will value".

WhatCar? Car Of The Year 2018 Best Small Car


Seat Ibiza 1.0 TSI 95 FR


Category winner

"The Seat Ibiza is, quite simply, everything a small car should be. Handling, practicality and running costs are class-leading, and there are no obvious weaknesses in the Ibiza’s armour.

It’s brilliant to drive. It is very composed, easy to manoeuvre around town and genuinely fun on faster roads, with a terrific chassis and communicative steering. The turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine that we recommend is punchy from low revs and spins eagerly, and it’s remarkably efficient in real-world driving.

It isn’t just on the road where the Ibiza beats its rivals, either. Inside, it’s one of the most practical cars in the class, with a huge boot and plenty of room to get comfortable. It’s stylish as well, with FR trim adding sports seats, DAB radio, cruise control and an excellent touchscreen infotainment system".

John Vennard, Sales Manager at Wilsons of Rathkenny SEAT had this to say about the accolade, "We feel this recognition for the New Ibiza and Arona is very well deserved. Both models offer the levels of tech people want with high levels of practicality and safety, all wrapped up in a very stylish package. Plus they're incredibly fun to drive. Add to this SEAT's competitive pricing it's no wonder both the new Ibiza and Arona models have proved so popular with customers since their launch.
