A flamboyant but completely secondary show car, Seat Ibiza ranked 12th in the top-selling B + segment in the first half of 2020. Young party-goers and representatives of the golden youth of Europe clearly liked the peacock character of the car and its low cost. During the specified period of time, 29 thousand cars were sold.
As for the headline of the news, then a very strange story came out. Back in August 2017, a 1.5-liter turbo engine was installed in Seat Ibiza, working in conjunction with a six-speed manual gearbox. The modification was successfully sold for the next two years, and then it simply disappeared from the market.

When Volkswagen discovered serious problems with the cold start of the power unit, they decided to remove the diesel engine, which is quite good in its parameters, from the assembly line. And so, the other day it became known that at the plant in Martorell the production of a model with a 1.5-liter diesel engine has started again.

The unit will, as before, produce 150 forces and 250 N • m. The variation provides only front-wheel drive and accelerates the car to a hundred in 8.2 seconds. As for the maximum speed, it is 219 km / h.
Many car fans have already made pre-orders for this modification and are eagerly awaiting its appearance in showrooms.
