Anuncio Seat Malaga GLX

The SEAT Malaga is a small family car in a 4-door sedan, which was first introduced by the Spanish car company SEAT (a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group) in 1985. Note that in Greece this car was called SEAT Gredos. Over the design of the sedan "Malaga" the company Italdesign worked under the guidance of Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. Such cars as SEAT Ibiza, SEAT Ronda, Fiat Ritmo and Fiat Regata were related to him. The wheelbase of the model SEAT Malaga was 2 445 mm, length - 4 275 mm, width - 1 650 mm, and height - 1 390 mm. Despite its modest size, the cabin was designed for five people.

In 1985, two variants of engines were proposed for the SEAT Malaga car: four-cylinder carburetor engines of 1.2 and 1.5 liters, whose power was 60 hp. at 5,800 rpm and 90 hp (85 hp) at 6,000 (5,600) rpm, respectively. As for the transmission, all cars were equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox. All engines were placed transversely in front. The front suspension of the sedan was based on coil springs, and the rear was spring. The brake system of the car included front disc and rear drum brakes.

In 1986, the list of proposed engines appeared four-cylinder diesel power unit of 1.7 liters capacity of 55 hp. at 4,500 rpm.

1988 was marked by the appearance of an injection version of a 4-cylinder engine with a distributed injection of 1.5 liters. The engine had two power ratings: 90 hp at 6,000 rpm and 100 hp at 5,900 rpm. This engine was more economical and surpassed its carburetor version in dynamics. The very next year, the 70-horsepower (at 6,000 rpm) 1.2-liter injection engine was introduced.

While the SEAT company came into the possession of the Volkswagen Group in 1990, sales of the SEAT Malaga model in Spain were pretty good, but they left much to be desired in other markets. As a result, in 1992 it was decided to stop the production of this car. In 1993, the model SEAT Cordoba replaced the SEAT Malaga.
