So the renewed SEAT Ibiza Cupra, now with 192 horses


The SEAT Ibiza Cupra renews facing the Frankfurt Motor Show. Its main novelty is the new 1.8-liter TSI engine that offers 192 horsepower.


SEAT-Ibiza-CUPRA-MY2016-1 S was one of the innovations that the Spanish brand has prepared to lead the Frankfurt Motor Show in a few days. This is the facelift SEAT Ibiza Cupra , which is updated with a new mechanical and improved aesthetics, but of which we fail to distinguish changes over the outgoing model.

Its main novelty is related to the discontinuation of the 1.4-liter TSI, for propeller TSI 1.8 liter which also uses the Polo GTI, which raised its output by 12 hp to the unit outgoing, until reaching a power of 192 hp with 320 Nm of torque . This engine with direct fuel injection allows the new Ibiza Cupra speed of 0 to 100 kph in 6.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 234 km / h.


With the new 1.8-liter TSI engine, it can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 6.7s.

In terms of design the press release does not explain too much and really is little that can be seen with the naked eye. Probably after his last visual upgrade, SEAT will have thought that were not needed too many changes in a model that will still have its generational change towards the end of next year.

Standard includes alloy wheels, 17 inches, Xenon headlights , LED daytime running lights, LED taillights. In the cabin is where most developments seem to be concentrated, as it has improved the dashboard, air vents, multifunction steering wheel appears to have been borrowed from Leon and new information system Entertainment that looks similar to that adopted by renewed Ibiza months ago and it has support for MirrorLink, Apple and Android carplay Auto .

For all the details we have to wait for his debut to be held in a few days in Frankfurt Motor Show .
