The second Cordoba generation (6L / 6L2) was introduced in October 2002, half a year after Ibiza. However, the offer was limited only to a four-door notchback sedan.The design, like that of the Ibiza III , is by Walter Da Silva , a former Alfa Romeo designer who gave the car an undisguised image of a small Alfa Romeo 156 , also featuring slightly retro-style interiors and clear Alfa Romeo inspiration . This allowed SEAT to resume its Mediterranean identity in the Ibiza , differentiating itself from the Volkswagen product line , as it does not share any stamping or interior pieces with the Polo IV and, in fact, VW it does not use this base for any of its products, being specifically used by SEAT .
