Who are SEAT?
SEAT is a Spanish car manufacturer that began production of small, practical cars out of its Barcelona plant back in 1953. From then, it’s grown to become Spain’s leading car company with a steady reputation for reliability.
Today SEAT is owned by the Volkswagen Group, and the German giant’s quality build design and high-quality excellence is evident in the evolving range of SEAT cars.
The Ibiza remains one of the most popular superminis in the UK, and was nominated WhatCar? Best Small Car of 2018. Sharply styled and sensibly priced, SEAT’s best-selling model is worthy competition for the Ford Fiesta and pricier Volkswagen Polo.

Safety standards often help to bring down insurance costs and SEAT doesn’t disappoint with plenty of safety equipment, such as electronic stability control, hill hold control and SEAT’s Front Assist emergency breaking system fitted as standard on most of their models.
Providing a great driving experience, the Ibiza is particularly popular with younger drivers who often find it difficult to find affordable car insurance.
Luckily, there are ways that could reduce the cost of your premium, such as:
- including an older and more experienced person as a named driver on your policy – just remember that you should be named as the main driver
- getting a telematics black box policy
- reducing your annual mileage
