Used SEAT Arona for sale
Introduced in 2017, The SEAT Arona is a small SUV that offers a variety of kit across the range, as well as a roomy interior. Based on its smaller Ibiza sibling, this crossover SUV offers a stylish and practical alternative to larger SUVs such as SEAT's Ateca.
SUVs have become increasingly popular and are the default choice for many people's next vehicle. With plenty of great examples to choose from within the used car market, here's a brief overview into why the Arona is a viable option:
- Sleek exterior styling
- Good boot capacity
- Wide range of equipment
- Low running costs
Read on below to discover the benefits of the SEAT Arona in more detail.
Engines and Driving Experience
A simple range of engines are available within the range, suitable for a variety of needs. The sportier FR specification sees the introduction of stiffer suspension, allowing the driver to capitalise on the Arona's agility.
Petrol variants come in the form of a 1.0-litre engine with either 95 or 110bhp capable of achieving 45mpg and above. A higher-powered 150bhp 1.5-litre option is available, but this may see fuel economy falling to an estimated 40mpg. Either option is suitable for getting around town in a fashionable manner.
A diesel variant is also available, in the form of a 1.6-litre TDI engine. Capable of achieving a combined figure of 65mpg, this may be more suited to those who regularly travel long distances. All engines are available with manual or automatic transmissions.
Practicality and Running Costs
For an SUV based off of its smaller hatchback sibling, the Arona possesses a generous amount of cabin space, especially within the front two seats. Having three adults in the back may be tighter than other vehicles within the class, but enough space is provided for children to enjoy the ride in comfort.
Boot space within the Arona comes at a respectable 400 litres, increasing to 823 litres with the rear seats dropped. However, SEAT decided not to feature some handy features such as reclining chairs that other models in the class have to offer, such as the MINI Countryman.
Running costs are also affordable. Any Evans Halshaw dealership is well-equipped to deal with any service or maintenance requirements and insurance costs are reasonable, with the most powerful variant residing within group 19 (out of 50).
Interior, Technology and Safety
Most modern SEATs come with a good amount of kit as standard and the Arona is no different. Features such as a 6.5-inch touchscreen and cruise control feature across the range, but opting for a higher specification grants access to a navigation system and parking aids.
The interior follows the typical high-quality finish we've come to expect from SEAT, featuring the usual black and grey colour scheme. However, FR and FR Sport examples see red accents implemented throughout the interior giving the cabin a sporty feel.
A full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating has been awarded thanks to handy safety gadgets, such as:
- Tiredness recognition systems
- Parking aids
- Hill hold control
- Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)
- Blind spot detection system
Is the SEAT Arona right for me?
The SEAT Arona is a well-equipped, stylish option on the small SUV market. The agile driving experience and respectable fuel economy figures make this vehicle a great option.
Alternatives such as the Skoda Kamiq and Citroën C3 Aircross offer more boot space and can be purchased for less than the Arona on the used car market. The highly praised Ford Puma also has an arguably more entertaining drive but can come at an extra cost.
However, the Arona is a great all rounder and can hold its own in a highly competitive small SUV class.
