Also included with the immediate effect: SEAT Connect, that is, access to the car via an app (with electric models, for example, you can use it to control the climate) and voice control (activated with “Hola Hola” on the Seat).

It’s good to see the wireless version of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay finally arrive on models like the Ibiza, but considering how long that’s been possible, it’s been a long time coming.
