2013 Seat Ibiza Cupra

The new Ibiza Cupra will soon be available to order and now Seat released more pictures of the small city car with a "sporting performance for every day". The car is fast but while the look isn't that exciting, it does not look as bad as some of its adversaries, with the exclusive 17-inch alloy wheels, the black gloss exterior mirrors, bi-xenon lights, the redesigned bumpers and tinted windows.

It does the 0 to 100km/h (62mph) sprint in just 6.9 seconds and achieves a top speed of 228km/h (142mph), and all that from a 1.4 TSI engine with a a supercharger and a turbocharger that develops 180hp (132kW) at 6,200rpm and 250Nm of torque from 2.000 to 4.500rpm. Helping drive the wheels is the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DSG) from the VW Group.

Still the car is quite efficient with a fuel consumption of just 5.9liters/100km and CO2 emissions of 139 grams per kilometer. The car, in Spain, will cost close to €23.000 or $31.000.
