What is the SEAT Ibiza FR?

With a stylish interior and handsome exterior looks, the SEAT Ibiza FR is a good choice for drivers looking for a practical yet sporty ride. The five-door family supermini hot hatchback comes with contemporary looks and plenty of onboard technology to satisfy the modern driver. Launched in 2009, the FR trim includes a revised body kit and equipment that gives the SEAT Ibiza a sporty appearance and performance.

The SEAT Ibiza FR is a good choice for those looking for a hot hatchback with good value for money. It competes well on the market, rivalling the Peugeot 308 GT, the Vauxhall Corsa GS, and the Volkswagen Polo R-Line.


SEAT Ibiza FR history

Originally launched in 1986, SEAT released the Mk2 SEAT Ibiza in 1993. The Mk2 was based on the design of the Volkswagen Polo, as it was also designed by designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. The Ibiza shared a similar platform to the Polo. However, the Ibiza was separate from the Polo, featuring a unique front bumper and grille as well as enlarged wings.

The Mk2 has a top speed of 123mph and achieves 0 to 62mph in 9.3 seconds. This model has been regularly updated with new features, styling and trim levels. The FR trim arrived in 2009 with the Mk4 Ibiza.

The FR stands for ‘Formula Racing’ and reflects the design of this trim. When it was first released, this trim was geared as a mid-to-high-level trim on the Ibiza, combining performance, power and practicality.

For this reason, the first iteration of the FR trim came with a 1.4-litre four-cylinder EcoTSI engine. It produces 148bhp and accelerates from 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds. This engine can also be configured to produce 109bhp. In this variant, the FR can accelerate from 0-62mph in 9.1 seconds.

The SEAT Ibiza Mk4 FR also benefitted from exterior styling upgrades, such as new front and rear bumpers, a remodelled front grille and stylish new headlights. Interior additions included a sports steering wheel, supportive front bucket seats and paddle shifters for smoother gear changes.

The FR was included in the Mk5 Ibiza’s trim range in 2017. On the outside, the Mk5 FR comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a sports suspension and redesigned bumpers. It is also the only trim which comes with the highest-powered engine – a 94bhp, 1.0-litre petrol engine.

New technology was added to this trim, such as SEAT’s Drive Profile technology, which pushes its performance. This lets you select three different four modes – eco, sport, comfort and individual – to tailor the trim’s suspension and drive to your individual driving needs. DAB radio and cruise control were also launched as standard on this trim.


Where does the SEAT Ibiza FR sit in the range?

The Seat Ibiza FR is a mid-level trim and comes with a range of features and technology. These help not only enhance the sporty look of the SEAT Ibiza FR but also add to the performance and driving experience of the vehicle.

In the Mk4 trim range, the FR sits above entry-level options such as the Stylance and Sport, but beneath the Cupra. The FR Sport was released after the FR and adds larger 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear LED light bar, a heated steering wheel and front seats and suede upholstery.

The Mk5 FR sits above the SE Design trim but below the premium Xcellence option.


What features and equipment does the SEAT Ibiza FR have?

The Ibiza FR adds the SEAT Drive Profile to the vehicle. This allows the driver to change the performance of the vehicle by selecting either the Normal, Sport, Eco or Individual modes. Each of these modes adjusts the steering, accelerator and gear shift performance to accommodate different styles of driving. Firmer sports suspension also helps to give the Ibiza FR a controlled drive.

On the inside, the FR trim comes with some features that help to give the cabin an upmarket feel. Sports seats provide the driver and front passenger with plenty of support and comfort. There is also a leather steering wheel with stylish red stitching.

On the exterior, a dual exhaust pipe set up, rear privacy glass and 17-inch alloy wheels give the FR the sporty appearance it's known for. Other features include cruise control, driver fatigue alert safety system and automatic wipers.
