Seat Arona Arrives In UK, Pricing Starts At £16,555

Seat have opened the order books for their new subcompact crossover, the Arona, ahead of its official UK launch scheduled for November 17.

Slotting under the Ateca, the Arona carries a £16,555 ($21,837) starting price, and according to the manufacturer, it’s at least £50/month ($66) cheaper than its rivals.

Ordering the base model means having to settle for a 1.0-liter TSI petrol engine that makes 95PS (94hp), but customers can also have a more powerful version of the same unit that’s rated at 115PS (113hp). Additionally, Seat offers a 150PS (148hp) 1.5-liter TSI, along with 95PS (94hp) and 115PS (113hp) versions of the 1.6-liter TDI diesels.

The new Seat Arona comes in six trim levels, with the base model getting 17-inch alloy wheels, metallic paint with contrasting roof, LED DRLs and taillights, front fog lights with cornering function, and electrically-operated side mirrors.

Despite being in its most basic form, this version of the subcompact crossover is also equipped with air conditioning, electric windows all around, 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and chrome and leather detailing.
