New Shakira-inspired Seat Ibiza revealed

The unconventional name comes directly from a track on Shakira’s latest album, and has also been used as the name of the Columbian pop star’s latest European tour.

Seat and Shakira have been in partnership for a number of years now, resulting in the singer appearing in Seat advertisements in print and on television.

Now the Spanish manufacturer has gone a step further by releasing the Ibiza Good Stuff, based on the 1.4 SE model and available in five-door hatch or sport coupe bodystyles.

The Good Stuff name refers to the satellite navigation, iPod Nano 8GB, upgraded media system and other extra equipment added to the standard specification.

New exterior colours, 16" Sonda alloy wheels and dark tinted rear windows have been fitted to the Ibiza Good Stuff to give it a more exclusive feel, but it comes at a cost: £12,300 for the sport coupe and £12,710 for the five-door model to be precise.

As well as the extra equipment, the 1.4-litre 16V petrol engine is capable of reaching 110mph and has a 0-62mph sprint time of 11.8 seconds.

Fuel economy has been officially recorded as 47.1mpg and the 85Ps engine emits 142g/km of CO2.

The popular Seat Ibiza is one of the Spanish manufacturer’s success stories in the UK, and a special edition with more equipment is expected to be a strong seller in across Europe.

Seat UK Ibiza Product Manager Andy McGregor claims there has already been ‘massive interest’ in the special edition. He said: ‘Adding these great features to the already generously-specified Ibiza creates a smart, sporty and brilliantly well-equipped supermini."

UK dealers have taken delivery of the Seat Ibiza special edition, which is on sale now.
