The SEAT Ibiza was originally tested without a driverís airbag. However to improve safety of their car SEAT have decided to change the standard specification to include an airbag from 4 September production. Although this has not improved the star rating, it does remove the threat of a high chance of severe or fatal injury from the steering wheel. Other than this, the car gave reasonable protection with some worries over the quality of construction and the weakness of the door in side impact.
