Seat Spanish automaker with Italian base
Unlike many other European countries, Spain did not have any large national car companies until the establishment of Seat
in 1950. The car market was very limited due to the moderate economic conditions in the country. The car companies that were active in Spain were mainly active in a more expensive segment. A number of Spanish banks wanted to change this situation with the cooperation of the Spanish government and in order to serve that purpose, Seat was founded.
Due to the lack of knowledge in the automotive industry, a partner was sought to get the company off the ground. Eventually, Fiat
won the contract and surpassed Volkswagen
, among others. The collaboration soon proved to be a great success. Many rebadged Fiat models became a hit in Spain, while the factories also provided employment. In the course of time, the production of almost all parts also shifted to Spain and Seat was given its own training centre. For many Spaniards, their first car was a model of Seat, which makes the brand a symbol of the economic revival of the southern European country.
Germany takes over the baton from Italy at Seat
Although the cooperation between Fiat and Seat lasted for a long time without any noteworthy problems, this changed in the 1980s. Seat wanted to expand and enter the foreign market, but Fiat did not want to invest any more and did not want to cooperate in the expansion. The contract was terminated and Volkswagen's previous interest was thus stimulated. The German company joined Seat immediately in 1983, a year after the contract with Fiat was terminated.
The success of the cooperation was soon quite large. Seat grew not only in its own country but also in many other European countries. Volkswagen therefore decided to take over Seat in its entirety, and in 1990 99,9% of Seat's shares came into German hands. Since then, Seat has been able to improve its market position considerably. In the sales figures since 1982, Seat has been one of the top 20 best-selling car brands almost every year. The cooperation between Volkswagen and Seat also resulted in a number of excellent models, of which the Seat Ibiza was the first.
The first two generations of the Seat Ibiza
A special feature of the first generation of the Seat Ibiza is that it was launched in 1984. This means that the car was conceived and developed around the years of the switch between Fiat and Volkswagen as partners. The Seat Ibiza is therefore also seen as a car with an Italian styling and German engine. From both countries is best combined in this first generation of the popular hatchback. The engine was also made in collaboration with Porsche
, which also has many similarities with the Fiat Ritmo
a model of Seat's old partner. The size of the car also proved to be very popular with a large audience. The first generation of Seat Ibiza is smaller than many family cars, such as the Ford Escort
and the Opel Kadett
, but larger than the competing Ford Fiesta
and the Opel Corsa
. More than 1.3 million copies of the first generation Seat Ibiza have been sold.
The second generation Seat Ibiza appeared in 1993 and is much more German than Italian. This model is based on the third generation VW Golf
and became a great success, especially in Spain. Safety was greatly improved with a glued windscreen, where its predecessor still had a window in rubber. In 1999, the second generation was given a facelift, and from then on Volkswagen decided to present Seat more as a sporty car brand that should attract young people in particular. The Seat models were always available with relatively spicy engines and this line has been continued since then. That it was successful is evident from the sales figures: more than 1.5 million copies from 1993 until the introduction of the third generation in 2002.
The latest versions of the Seat Ibiza
From 2002 to 2008, the third generation of Seat Ibiza was sold. This version is based on the VW Polo
Mk4. Many people see this generation as perhaps the best of the five. The car won several prizes, especially because of the excellent styling and the excellent performance of the engines. The car was also more luxuriously decorated with, among other things, a rain sensor in the windscreen. In addition, five adults fit in and the price quality is very good. This car was not used for nothing by the police as well as by rally riders. The Seat Ibiza Mk4 sold from 2008 to 2017 was also a commercial success. The main feature of this version is the updated design that breaks with the very simple previous design and seems a little more luxurious and stylised.
The latest Seat Ibiza is for sale since 2017. This fifth generation is a bit shorter and wider than its predecessor, but otherwise almost the same in terms of styling. It remains to be seen whether this model will match the success of the first versions. The Seat Ibiza is expected to remain a bestseller in the hatchback segment in many European countries for a long time to come.
