new SEAT Arona

SEAT has announced the pricing and technical specifications for the eagerly awaited new Arona, now available to order in the UK.

Prices start at £19,260 OTR for the Arona SE 1.0 TSI EVO 95PS, and go to £25,835 for the Arona XPERIENCE LUX 1.0 TSI DSG-auto 110PS.

Customers can choose from six distinct trims (SE, SE Technology, FR, FR Sport, XPERIENCE and XPERIENCE Lux), matching the desired trim level to the power output that suits them best.

The new Arona 1.0 TSI EVO 95PS can be specified with SE and SE Technology trim, whereas the 1.0 TSI 110PS is available from FR trim upwards. The 1.0 TSI DSG-auto 110PS can be paired with all trim levels, while a sportier 1.5 TSI DSG-auto 150PS is available exclusively with FR and FR Sport trims.

“The SEAT Arona is a clear pillar of success within the range, being the second most sold SEAT model last year,” said Wayne Griffiths, President of SEAT and CUPRA. “The new pricing and updated specifications only add to this vehicles’ incredible attributes, offering a refreshed design at exceptional value for money.”

When it comes to warranties, the new Arona has a 3-year/60,000-mile warranty as standard, with the option to upgrade to 4 years/75,000 miles for £180 RRP, or 5 years/90,000 miles for £315 RRP.

The new SEAT Arona is designed, developed and built at SEAT’s facilities in Martorell, Barcelona.

A new look

The facelift sees a number of new design features.

Subtle exterior refinements complement the model’s rugged appearance, as the car receives three new alloy wheel designs (two 17-inch and one 18-inch), ECO LED exterior lighting as standard, a stylish, two-tone chrome SEAT logo with the Arona model name in embossed, handwritten lettering, a new grille patterning, a Reflex Silver bumper, foglight design changes, and a new spoiler and diffuser.

There are also a number of new additions to the Arona colour palette, including three new body colours – Sapphire Blue, Asphalt Blue, and Dark Camouflage – and three roof colour options – Midnight Black, Magnetic Tech and new Candy White.

Reflecting the exterior enhancements, the interiors have been updated with the Arona featuring SEAT’s renowned Beats audio system as an option, and a 9.2-inch Navigation screen available on SE Technology trim and above (SE trim comprises an 8.25-inch Touchscreen display).

Additionally, a high resolution Digital Cockpit features in the Arona on FR Sport and XPERIENCE Lux.

To further create atmosphere within the cabin, the newly designed air vents have surround LED lighting, available in a range of colours depending on the trim selected – Daring Red for FR/FR Sport and Aran Green for XPERIENCE/XPERIENCE Lux.

As is always a priority with new SEAT vehicles, connectivity takes pride of place. To that end, the Arona features the SEAT Connect system and integrated wireless Full Link smart phone functionality, ensuring that the driver never feels digitally disconnected.
