SEAT is introducing the 1.5 litre TSI engine to the Ibiza, linked to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission. The new option produces 150PS (110kW) of power and 250Nm of torque.



The new TSI unit will boost the SEAT Ibiza’s performance, giving it a top speed of 219km/h, and the Ibiza will be able to reach 100km/h from a standing start in 8.2 seconds.



This engine will only be available with the seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission.



The DSG technology makes shifting smoother and faster, providing a more dynamic experience behind the steering wheel, while also increasing comfort levels for all vehicle occupants.



The SEAT Ibiza 1.5 TSI 150 PS DSG uses between 5.6 and 6.4 litres/100km based on the official WLTP test cycle. CO2 emissions are 128-147 g/km.

Interesting it’s to be available only in conjunction with DSG transmission. Maybe to avoid potential kangaroo-ing issues associated with the 1.5 EVO TSI engine when mated to a manual gearbox than many owners of various VAG models have experienced.

Isn't that the same performance as the same combo in a leon/a3 which are heavier cars?

The Ibizas look nice though, they need to do another quick one.

I fondly remember my Ibiza 1.4ACT 150Black Edition, that was a quick little car across country, i somehow feel that this will not be the same! Looks smart though.

I think this will be the quickest we get sadly.
I think you’re correct; prospective owners would probably have to look elsewhere within VAG if they want an Ibiza sized car with more than 150ps - Audi A1 or VW Polo GTI.

Audi already have the 1.5 150ps engine in the A1 but VW don’t offer that engine in the Polo; it’s either a 1.0 three cylinder engine in various states of tune or the 2.0 200ps engine in the Polo GTI. I doubt that VW will be getting the 1.5 engine though; if it were offered it would likely be in the mildly sporty looking R-Line, but looking at the pricing structure of the Polo range, a Polo R-Line with a 1.5 engine and DSG transmission would probably cost more than the cheaper of the two Polo GTI‘s (also with DSG) which wouldn‘t really make sense.

Sadly just had it confirmed no plans to bring this to the UK. SEAT don't predict enough interest to make it viable.

The Polo does get the 1.5 TSI with a DSG elsewhere in Europe. It's a shame you can't get the 1.5 with a manual. Or the 2.0 for that matter!

Yes, it does seem a shame there's no manual - there might be more interest. I was hoping to be able to consider a manual 1.5 or 2.0 Ibiza, Polo or A1 when I change the 140 Fiesta I have at present, but looks like there's no chance now. Ford seem to find it worthwhile currently offering 155 and 200ps Fiestas with a manual box, so there must be some demand.

There are manual 1.5 TSI Ibizas and A1s out there, it's just that they were pulled from production. I think it must have been some emissions issues, likely that with all the constant changes they've had over the past couple of years, they figured it wasn't worth the effort re-certifying the manual.

Off topic- but weird- the A1 with the 115PS engine is 10.5 seconds 0-62mph. The Ibiza with the same engine is 9.3 seconds. Weird.

VW did the same with the 2.0 Polo GTI. The promised manual transmission never appeared in the UK, and in those overseas markets that did get the manual version, it was only produced for a very short period of time before it was pulled from the model line up.

As for the difference in 0-62 times for the Audi AI and Ibiza with the most powerful version of the three cylinder 1.0 engine; it looks as if the A1 has a power output of 110ps rather than a 115ps. So the most powerful 1.0 litre Ibiza has a slight power advantage over the most powerful 1.0 litre engined A1 (an extra 5ps). There may also be a weight difference between the two cars (A1 heavier maybe?) which would also have an impact on performance.

5PS isn't going to make much difference. The 110PS A1 is closer in speed to the 95PS Ibiza, which takes 10.9 seconds to 62, than the 115PS Ibiza. Weird.

The only small car getting the 1.5 tsi 150 is the VW T Cross.......Why Why Why ....... Ford Fiesta now coming with a 1.0 ecoboost MHEV pushing 155....... Would love the Ibiza to get the 1.5 or better still the 2.0 200 :/

You can get the 1.5 TSI with a DSG in the A1.

But yes. I certainly would like a 1.5 TSI in a small VAG car with a manual!
