While engine ‘downsizing’ is popular amongst manufacturers looking to increase economy, SEAT has seen fit to put a bigger engine in its Cupra hot hatch. Not only that, but the Spanish car maker has also done a U-turn on the gearbox, with the automatic-only Cupra now coming with just a six-speed manual gearbox. This one is a manual one and we love it.
This fourth generation Ibiza Cupra 6J is equipped with the ea888 gen3 1.8 Tsi engine producing 192 PS (141 kW; 189 hp) / 6200 and 320 N⋅m (240 lb⋅ft) / 1450-4200 built from 2015 and after.
