The first pictures of the SEAT Arona have been retrieved from software set to be used on the crossover’s infotainment system.
Posted by MQB-Coding & Retrofit, the images give us our first detailed glimpse at the Ibiza-based crossover which is slated to be launched toward the end of the year.
Looking relatively sporty, the Arona has a stylish front fascia with a mesh grille that is flanked by triangular headlights. The crossover also features a sculpted hood and a large lower air intake.
Moving further back, the model has a blacked out A-pillar which blends into the contrasting black roof. A closer inspection reveals a prominent character line, modest amounts of body cladding, and a distinctive greenhouse with a small rear quarter window.
The rear end looks pretty plain by comparison but it features wraparound taillights, an angular bumper, and a dual exhaust system.
Engine options are expected to carryover from the Ibiza so choices could include a 1.0-liter TSI with outputs of 95 PS (93 hp) and 115 PS (113 hp). Buyer looking for something more powerful can expect a 1.5-liter TSI four-cylinder that develops 150 PS (148 hp). There should also be a 1.6-liter TDI engine with ratings of 80, 95, and 115 PS (79, 94, and 113 hp).
