SEAT Arona in Dover Kent
You want space, but you don’t want size. You want a high driving position, but you don’t want to sacrifice a sporty drive. Sounds like you need the SEAT Arona. This compact SUV has a 400-litre boot and is based on the Ibiza platform, which means you get sporty handling and a fun drive baked in. The headroom isn’t far off an Ateca’s, giving your family room to grow and you can spec your Arona with a TDI or TSI engine and a manual or DSG gearbox to suit your driving style. Choose from SE, SE Technology, SE Technology Lux, FR, FR Sport, XCELLENCE and XCELLENCE Lux trim levels. Features like full LED headlights, KESSY, wireless phone charging and Park Assist are available as standard.
Spacious doesn’t have to mean big. The SEAT Arona is refreshingly compact, yet it packs serious attitude with its high ride height and roof bars. 17” or 18” alloys are standard, with full LED headlights on FR models onwards.
You’ll love the high driving position, sharp handling and ease of use. FR Sport models have Dynamic Chassis Control so you can tune the drive, and cruise control is a standard feature. You have the choice of a 1.0 TSI, 1.5 TSI or 1.6 TDI engine.
There’s more headroom than in an Ibiza or Leon, and the massive 400-litre boot has a double boot floor so you can eliminate the load lip. There’s ISOFIX points on both rear outer seats and comfortable accommodation for five passengers.
Living with it
The 8” touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is easy to use, and useful features like heated seats and keyless entry are available as standard. The Arona is also cheap to run, with the 1.0 TSI engine returning up to 48.7mpg combined (WLTP).
