Are you in the market for a consummate crossover? If the answer’s yes, why not take a look at the SEAT Arona? This good-looking compact SUV offers an affordable solution to family motoring, and is designed to navigate city streets, country lanes and motorways with equal aplomb . And there are six trim levels to choose from, beginning with the well-specified SE and culminating with the superbly appointed XPERIENCE Lux.
Boasting sharp styling and an assertive demeanour, the SEAT Arona certainly isn’t lacking in kerb appeal. This attractive crossover rides on minimum-size 17-inch alloy wheels, sports a smartly contrasting roof and is fitted with distinctive ECO LED automatic headlights that provide optimum visibility in an ultra-efficient way. In combination with the striking front grille, this presents a head-turning aesthetic, which is enhanced by a choice of vibrant metallic paint colours including Nevada White, Magnetic Grey and Emocion Red.
Thanks to its tall roofline, the Arona offers lots of headroom, which tall travellers in particular will appreciate. Certainly, the vehicle comfortably accommodates five, with plenty of legroom for rear occupants to relax. There’s also a generous 400-litre boot space, which increases to 823 litres with the rear seats folded. Behind the wheel you’ll enjoy the sense of luxury created by the soft-touch dashboard and leather multi-function steering wheel, which puts key controls right at your fingertips. And in true SEAT style, a host of customisation options is available, with a choice of cloth or microsuede upholstery and a selection of different colour accents.
Technology and Safety
A six-speaker sound system is installed as standard with entry-level SE trims. This includes an FM/AM tuner and a DAB digital radio – and Bluetooth connectivity, enabling audio streaming and hands-free phone communication. And thanks to the presence of SmartLink, you can easily mirror your Apple/Android smartphone via the car’s standard-issue 8.25-inch colour touchscreen.
Since the Arona comes with Euro NCAP’s full five-star crash-test rating, you can rest assured it will keep you and your loved ones protected. Among the vehicle’s many safety features is Tiredness Recognition System, which monitors driver input and indicates when it’s time to take a break.
The SEAT Arona’s selection of efficient petrol engines include 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre units, offering power outputs ranging from 94bhp to 148bhp. With a 1.0-litre 108bhp engine installed, this lively crossover returns as much as 53.3mpg while producing CO2 emissions from just 121g/km. For maximum punch, choose the 1.5-litre 148bhp variant, which is available with FR and FR Sport trims and enables you to complete the 0-62mph sprint in just 8.2 seconds. Whatever your preference, you can be sure of a controlled yet dynamic drive both in town and on the open road.
