When this one came out, it looked really clean, sharp and well proportioned, especially in its day - I don't think they've done one that looks as good since

This new one is OK, but nothing more - none of the current seat range has me wanting to rush over to the show room to take a closer look.

Really?!  It was garbage as a car. The one after it moved the game on a huge amount and put SEAT in the mainstream along with the first Leon.

The second gen Ibiza was just a Polo with a flamenco skirt on.

Better than a FIAT Strada in flemenco skirt which the first one was!

I thought SEAT were to be used by VAG as the cool brand, this new Ibiza is certainly a good looking car, however it is too "mature" looking for me for the sector that the Ibiza currently occupies; whilst I'm not a fan of the current Ibiza styling I can see its appeal to younger people and according to our SEAT dealership, many are sold to younger people; more so than older, this new one could put the younger lot off.
