Model shown is the Ibiza SC 1.4 TDI 80PS Ecomotive. Priced at £12,790. *The £1,250 saving is off the recommended retail price of the Ibiza 1.4 TDI 80PS Ecomotive and is available between the 1 April and 30 June 2010. Retail sales only. Subject to availability. Offer may be withdrawn at anytime. **The total running cost savings over 3 years are derived from the Ibiza Ecomotive having a VED Band weighting of band A (up to 100g/km CO2) therefore the owner pays no road tax, a saving of £330 is based on the average CO2 emissions for the Ibiza range of 133.93g/km meaning the owner must pay road tax based on VED Band E of £110 per year over 3 years. A fuel saving of £496.42 per year is arrived at based on an average of 15,000 miles per annum using the average combined fuel economy for the Ibiza range (52.02mpg) compared to the combined fuel economy of the Ibiza Ecomotive (76.3mpg) and a fuel cost of £1.19 per litre. The total fuel saving is then taken over 3 years which is the average period a vehicle is retained giving a saving of £1,489.26. Total running cost savings over 3 years are therefore £1,819.26. Fuel prices and VED band rate correct at time of going to press.
Official fuel consumption for the SEAT Ibiza SC 1.4 TDI 80PS Ecomotive in mpg (litres per 100km); urban 57.6 (4.9); extra-urban 94.2 (3.0); combined 76.3 (3.7). CO2 emissions 98g/km.
