Im sorry if im asking a dumb question but im coming in blind. Ive kept looking at the Mk4 ibiza and to be honest, I didnt click to think about the mk3 till i spotted a lovely black one the other day, it was tdi and i wanted to know a few bits and bob's about them. Are they good? Sorry to sound stupid, i know all Seat's are good in their way but i cant find a site review for one of these, Whatcar are proving uselss, only having 'used' car's as the mk4 ibiza not Mk3 so cant even get a spec list properly or details on the engine.

Please, help a Leon owner in distress lol!!!!!

I never thought I would say this being a die hard ex Mk3 owner but the Mk4 130 PD is the one you want if you can mate as the Mk3 is pretty basic and I think its either a 90 or 100 and none PD but someone might correct me!

Cheers Si, im trying hard for a Mk3 but I still like the Mk3 and to be honest, didnt know they did a TDI version so Oops on that part, hence Im totally in the dark on the car as a whole. its same engine as TDI's such as Polo i think but thats all I know so far. loads have Mk3 cupra's but never seen tdi's might be good reason lol!

The TDI engines available in the Mk3 Ibiza are the 90hp and the 110hp (with variable vane turbo) and neither are PD units.
The 110hp ones are alot rarer too.

I'm a 110 bhp TDI Mk3 owner. Had it a year now and i love it. The best car i have owned so far, but thats not saying much when my last two were a ford escort and a ford Ka.

My log book states mine is a TDI Sport PD. But i am not certain that it is a PD. It does shift if you want it to, and it comes with traction control on the front wheels for when you punch it to hard. Most instances the power is more than enough for what i need. If you keep the turbo spinning it'll fly and sticks well to the road with decent tyres on. I wouldn't go for a diesel with less power than this one, I drove a 90hp and it was hard work.

As for spec the 110 hp sport comes with air con, climate contol, leather trimmed steering wheel & gear knob, 6 Disc Multichange CD player, Disks all round, ABS, TCS, electric windows, electric heated door mirrors, etc. It hasn't got all the trim of the CUPRA petrol 1.8, it has standard bumpers, but it does have side skirts, a larger spoiler and 15inch 5 spoke alloys.

I easily get an average 57 miles to the gallon. Which was the reason i bought the diesel. My mate has the MK4 130bhp sport, and that is a nicer much quicker car and a similar fuel consumption. But i love my bright yellow rare a rocking horse muck MK3. Its a good car. However i have only seen one other since.
