It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s The New Seat Arona Flying Over Spain

The Seat Arona has been spied undisguised while being flown over the city of Barcelona, Spain.

Snapped by Instagram user marcosgf, the picture reveals the compact crossover will have a rakish windscreen, a contrasting roof, and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. We can also see alloy wheels, slender taillights, and silver accents on the rear bumper. The Arona also appears to have plastic body cladding and a relatively small greenhouse.

Seat has been tight-lipped about the model but it will slot beneath the Ateca and become the brand’s entry-level crossover.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but are expected to carryover from the Ibiza. This means choices could include a 1.0-liter TSI with outputs of 95 PS (70 kW) and 115 PS (84 kW). The company may also offer a 1.5-liter TSI four-cylinder engine with 150 PS (110 kW).

Diesel fans will likely have the option of ordering a 1.6-liter TDI engine with outputs of 80 PS (58 kW), 95 PS (70 kW), and 115 PS (84 kW).

The Seat Arona will be unveiled on June 26th and the model will be launched later this year.

    At first I thought that it was the new Kia Stonic

    • iKaizen

      Same here!

    • Wayne Alan Carr Heyes

      exactly my point!

    • jfalckt

      +1 on that!
      It’s soon going to be attack of the clones with these mini SUVs, having a regular hatchback will start looking the alternative choice soon.

  • Jason Miller

    Nissan Kicks anyone?

    • iKaizen

      True. I guess Nissan was late.

      • Jason Miller

        Kicks has been out for a while already in South America.

        • iKaizen

          That’s true. But I wonder what is taking them so long to sell in other markets.

          • Jason Miller

            What South America gets may not exactly sell well in the US. Some things may need refinement.

  • Luc Helterbrand

    i guess orange and grey is the “it” color scheme. the world is made up of nothing but herds of sheep.

  • Wayne Alan Carr Heyes

    EXACTLY the SAME color scheme as the new KIA Stonic!

    and im sorry but it looks awful!
