General info

1.Has front-wheel drive
SEAT Ibiza 1.4 TSI (2014)

Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

2. smaller turn radius

10.5m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.

4. less CO2 emissions

139g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
