New Arona Small SUV Ready To Print Money For SEAT

Yes, another new entry in the sub-compact SUV segment, this time coming from Seat with the new Arona.

The Arona is Seat’s version of the VW T-Roc as both cars are based on the same modular platform which in turn is also used in the latest Seat Ibiza and VW Polo superminis.

The new Spanish SUV takes the design of the new Ibiza and uses it rather successfully for its own purpose, creating a shape that can be described as subtly dynamic, which is after all Seat’s way of penning cars these days.

The new Seat Arona is also the second SUV of the Spanish brand, following the bigger Ateca and waiting for the reveal of the big one, which has yet to be named.

A wide range of efficient engines will be offered to suit every taste, starting with the 1.0-liter TSI in two versions -95PS and 115PS-, while a 1.6-liter TDI diesel engine will also be available, again in two flavors -95PS and 115PS. The faster FR version will be powered by the 1.5-liter TSI with cylinder deactivation and a punchier 150PS output.

    subtly dynamic you say?
    Looks like the usual box on wheels to me.

      Yes, a subtly dynamic box

  • OdysseyTag

    With all the amount of crossovers – sad there isn’t a sport or rally series where they can all slug it out – but that’s just me.

    • Bash

      That’s a brilliant idea!
