With tidy handling and a range of diesel and petrol engines available, the SEAT Arona is a fantastic addition to the market. Rivalling the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Suzuki Vitara, the Arona is lots of fun to drive – more agile and entertaining than rivals. The 17inch alloys (smallest available) deals with bumps and scar well and is settled at motorway speeds. Switchable suspension comes as standard on FR Sport Trim – this setup allows you to stiffen and soften the dampers at the touch of a button.
•Decent driving position – plenty of seat adjustment with pedals that line-up neatly.
•The dashboard is logically ordered with chunky, clearly labelled buttons and an air conditioning control panel that is angle towards the drivers – makes it easier to access.
•Great front visibility – the windscreen pillars don’t obstruct at any point.
•Rear view is more obstructed due to the heavily styled rear-end.
•All trims (except the entry-level SE) come with parking sensors.
•Range-topping Xcellence Lux models also get sensors at the front of car and rear-view camera.
•The Arona is set up very much like the SEAT Ibiza.
•Built from hard plastics – everything is sturdily assembled and doesn’t feel cheap or tacky.
•All trims get a touchscreen infotainment system – this grows from 5.0inch to 8.0inch when you upgrade from entry-level SE to SE Technology.
•SE Technology is also the entry point for built-in sat-nav, DAB Digital radio, wireless phone charging and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.
•The small touchscreen is slightly fiddly but the 8.0inch is great – crisp, bright and reacts quickly.
•One of the best infotainment systems in the class.
•In the front – plenty of room, even if you’re well over 6ft.
•Good head, leg and shoulder room.
•Door bins aren’t the biggest, but there is a small cubby and decent glovebox.
•‘Storage Pack’ fitted to Xcellence models adds a handy storage drawer under the driver’s seat. •In the rear – very room back seat – considerably more space than main rivals.
•A couple of 6footers will fit easily – 3 adults is a bit of a squeeze.
•Rear bench folds in a 60/40 split.
•Boot capacity is 400litres, which dwarfs rivals (almost a match for the Renault Captur).
•A height adjustable boot floor comes as standard.
We think that the Arona is an excellent alternative to the Renault Captur or even the Suzuki Vitara!
