I really thought I was going to love this car. After all, I'd been very fond of the old Ibiza, especially in TDI 110 and 1.8T Cupra incarnations. I'd rated the new Polo on which the new Ibiza is based as a joyful little car and good fun to drive. So I had high expectations that the SEAT Centro Stile in Sitges would have come up with something really special.
