Seat Ibiza Engine Oil Finder

SEAT no longer just follows the sister brands in the group. No, the Spaniards are even ahead of the rest, because the fifth generation of the Ibiza, which has sold over 5.3 million units since 1984, is the first model from the VW Group to be based on the new MQB-A0 platform from Wolfsburg's modular transverse matrix. Even ahead of the VW Polo and the Audi A1.

Despite the almost unchanged length of 4.06 meters, this gives the Ibiza more space in the interior and trunk. In addition, the considerable increase in width compared to the predecessor leads to even more convincing road holding and the enormously increased wheelbase ensures improved driving comfort.

Old vs New Ibiza
What the small car gains in size, however, it loses in derivatives. In the future, the Ibiza will only be available as a four-door model. A station wagon is also not planned and the traditionally sportiest version of the Cupra is also omitted in the new generation.

The Ibiza, which weighs just 1,100 kg, came to SEAT dealerships in June 2017, while the VW Polo took a few months longer and the Audi A1 didn't even arrive until 2018. So if you wanted to enjoy VW's new platform the Spanish way before, you had to choose the new Ibiza, which in many ways represents real progress compared to its predecessor.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Seat Ibiza's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Seat Ibiza engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Seat Ibiza? Whether you are topping up your Seat Ibiza oil or doing a full change of your Seat Ibiza's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
