Seat Arona

CAR (UK) - - Insider -

Seat was slow to oer any sort of SUV but has now fol­lowed the Ateca with its irst smaller cross­over, the Arona, named af­ter a mu­nic­i­pal­ity in Tener­ife and de­signed to take on cross­over heavy­weights like the Nis­san Juke and Re­nault Cap­tur.

Think of it as an Ibiza on stilts and you’re not far o. It uses the VW Group A0 plat­form shared by its Ibiza sib­ling and Polo cousin and has an in­te­rior largely bor­rowed from both. Ditto the en­gines: there’s a 1.0-litre TSI that pro­duces ei­ther 94bhp or 113bhp along with the VW Group’s fresh 1.5-litre TSI Evo with 148bhp and a 1.6-litre TDI diesel vari­ant. A six-speed man­ual or a seven-speed DSG are your gear­box op­tions. Spec op­tions in­clude wire­less phone charg­ing, key­less en­try and Ap­ple CarPlay/An­droid Auto.
