Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Inside, the Ibiza is pure VW Polo, which is no bad thing, being smart and spacious with a welcome dash of colour in the trim. Most of the buttons and switches are in logical, easy-to-reach locations. The ride though is less Polo-like, so not quite as refined.

Firm ride but the seats provide good cushioning, but rear accommodation is tight and there’s road and wind noise at higher speeds. Head and leg room is better than a Polo of the same age.
