Comments

The Ibiza has a small petrol tank but this is used only in an emergency, so the car was tested only in CNG mode. In general, the exhaust after-treatment works well, although particulate number (PN) would benefit from the fitment of a gasoline particulate filter (GPF).

The Ibiza is quite small and light and this is to its advantage in terms of energy efficiency. With an average consumption of 4.0 kg/100 km in the laboratory tests, rising to 4.5 kg/100 km in the high-load highway test, the car scores well in this part of the assessment, with an index of 5.7.

Comments

The car shows good control of Nitrous Oxide (N2O), especially in the cold ambient test. Emissions of other greenhouse gases are also kept quite low, to gain the car an index of 4.5 in this part of the assessment.

Our verdict

There has been an Ibiza in SEAT's line-up since 1984 and, now in its fifth generation, it is tested here with a 1 litre engine running on compressed natural gas (CNG). The car has a small petrol tank but this is used only in emergencies and at start-up in very cold temperatures, so the tests were conducted only in CNG mode. The 66 kW engine struggled to keep up with some of Green NCAP's more demanding tests but, nevertheless, the car's emissions control stood up well to the challenge. Control of particulates was unexceptional, and would benefit from a gasoline particulate filter (GPF) but, on the whole, levels of other pollutant emissions and of greenhouse gases was commendable. The CNG power unit also provides reasonable fuel efficiency and, with balanced performance in all three areas of assessment, the Ibiza fully deserves its three-star rating.
