The Only Real Hot Hatch Diesel Gti. — My 2001 Seat Ibiza Evo2 was equipped with VW's 110bhp 1.9 TDI with 235Nm of torque. I bought the car new for the build quality, seen my previous experience with the 106 XSi falling apart.The brakes were very impressive, typically VAG. The engine had no trouble with the 1065 kilograms of the car. But it was mostly the torque that made the car such a nice drive. Mind you it still was a diesel: quite noisy and shaking like hell when cold. Handling was exceptionally good for a VAG. There was mild understeer that easily avoidable with some balancing techniques. On the Nordschleife, it behaved increadibly well on the bumps, height differences and violent twists. Excellent! There is a downside to everything and that was the ride comfort. Seat Sport made the dampers so stiff that if I would have had teeth fillings, they would have dropped out of my mouth at the first speed bump. It was horrible. My neck and back still hurt when I think of it. In addition the seats were not up to their task: they were made for big people who wouldn fit in the car in the first place... It had no airco, which was a budget question and a terrible error considered afterwards. I would have sold it much more easily. The VW TDI had enough with an ascetic 5,8 to 6,3 liters per 100km, depending on the conditions. I must say that I didn't really drove like a snail, which makes it even more impressive. Maintenance was not very expensive either, and seen it kept its promises regarding solidity, it turned out a cheap car to run. Was there any fun in driving it? Yes when you went for the highest possible cornering speeds, or wanted some dirty throwing and waving the tail sessions. But in daily use, the ride was really way too harsh.

Pros: Torquey engine, solid as a rock, very impressive brakes & handling.

Cons: Awful ride comfort, insufficient "sports" seats.

It Gets You There — Nice economical car. It's a diesel motor, which saves gas...but doesn't get you there fast. Because it's a diesel engine, it doesn't break down easily so I think it's good for the wallet. THis car takes me wherever I want to go, so I think it's alright.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Save money on gas

Cons: Looks
