Seat Ibiza: Luggage compartment

Seat Ibiza Owners Manual

Stowing luggage

All luggage must be securely stowed. Please observe the following points to ensure the vehicle handles well at all times: – Distribute the load as evenly as possible. – Place heavy objects as far forward in the luggage compartment as possible.


• Loose luggage and other loose items in the vehicle can cause serious injuries.

• Loose objects in the luggage compartment can suddenly move and change the way the vehicle handles.

• During sudden manoeuvres or accidents, loose objects in the passenger compartment can be flung forward, injuring vehicle occupants.

• Always put objects in the luggage compartment.

• When you transport heavy objects, always keep in mind that a change in the centre of gravity can also cause changes in vehicle handling.

• Please observe information on safe driving, “Safe driving”.


Hard objects on the shelf could chafe against the wires of the heating element in the rear window and cause damage.


The ventilation slots in front of the rear side windows must not be covered as this would prevent stale air being extracted from the vehicle.

Fig. 90 Luggage compartment cover

Removing the cover

– Disengage the loops ⇒ fig. 90
from the retaining pins

– Extract the cover from its slot, in its rest position and pull outwards.


Do not place heavy or hard objects on the luggage compartment cover, this will endanger the vehicle occupants in case of sudden braking.


• Before closing the tailgate, ensure that the stowage compartment tray is correctly fitted.

• An overloaded boot could mean that the rear stowage tray is not correctly seated and it may be bent or damaged.

• If the boot is overloaded, remove the tray.


• Ensure that, when placing items of clothing on the luggage compartment cover, rear visibility is not reduced.

Roof carrier

Please observe the following points if you intend to carry loads on the roof:

• For safety reasons, only luggage racks and accessories approved by SEAT should be used.

• It is imperative to precisely follow the fitting instructions included for the rack, taking special care when fitting the front bar in the holes designed for this and the rear bar between the marks on the upper part of the rear door frame while respecting the correct direction of travel indicated in the installation manual. Not following these instructions may lead to paintwork damage or marks on the bodywork.

• Pay special attention to the tightening torque of the attachment bolts and check them following a short journey. If necessary, retighten the bolts and check them at regular intervals.

• Distribute the load evenly. A maximum load of 40 kg only is permitted for each roof carrier system support bar, the load must be distributed evenly over the entire length. However, the maximum load permitted for the entire roof (including the support system) of 75 kg must not be exceeded nor should the total weight of the vehicle be exceeded. See the chapter on “Technical Data”.

• When transporting heavy or large objects on the roof, any change in the normal vehicle behaviour due to a change in the centre of gravity or an

increased wind resistance must be taken into account. For this reason, a suitable speed and driving style must be used.

• For those vehicles fitted with a sunroof*, ensure that it does not interfere with the load on the roof carrier system when opened.
