Of this fifth generation of Ibiza (the first model of the Volkswagen Group to exploit the modular platform MQB A0, common to all future models of about four meters in length) you will first appreciate the lines, more “bad” than those of the previous one thanks also to deeper ribs on the bonnet and sides. Long 406 centimeters, the car is also wider than 9: the cockpit is spacious, with really comfortable front seats, while the sofa looks almost like a medium sedan. Work well the plastics, but not really soft to the touch (except for the armrests). Commands and tools are easy and intuitive: pity, however, that the hand speedometer is too dense with numbers and dashes. Really practical the trunk, with 355 liters of capacity (63 more than before) and the load threshold at 71 cm from the ground.

Practical and captivating the multimedia system with 8 ‘ ‘ screen, equipped with navigator with 3d graphics and able to support the protocols Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and mirrorlink that allow the connection with the smartphone.
