Try it, Seat Arona: the restyling has a hi-tech flavor

Try it, Seat Arona

All new inside, and with small, but functional details on the outside, the Seat Arona reaches its mid-career update. The engine range loses diesel, while the new Xperience trim gives the car a more muscular look. Hi-tech, this is the restyling of the Seat Arona. In fact, the small Spanish croossover arrives at the mid-career update by focusing everything on technology and standard equipment. Outside, thanks to small details, the upgrade can be seen: in front the fog lights move under the headlights, to give way to two new vertical air intakes, while behind, on the tailgate, the complete lettering that identifies the name of the car appears. (thus following the trend of the other models of the brand).

Outside, the restyling of the Seat Arona was reasoned out. The aesthetics have not undergone changes, but small improvements designed ad hoc to improve the habitability of the car. The two new front air intakes, in fact, evacuate the impact with the air, moving the aerodynamic flows outwards towards the sides. The result? Noises have been significantly improved, making the cabin quieter at all speeds. An absolute novelty, on the other hand, is the arrival of the Xperienc package, which paints some details in gray such as the front and rear skid plates, while the white roof together with the mirror caps contrast with the livery of the bodywork.

In our test of about 1,000km we were able to test Arona with the 1.5 150hp petrol engine combined with the perfect DSG gearbox. The car has been tested in every situation, starting from the city - where the softness of the DSG is particularly appreciated - passing through the extra-urban where we find its ideal territory and ending with the motorway where Arona still manages to maintain a decidedly surprising average of about 5.5 l / 100km or 18 km liter up to the mountain where we were able to carry 5 people fully loaded without the slightest fatigue. As for the driving modes, we preferred to opt for the ECO mode as it manages to take full advantage of the soaring and we found it ideal to use in most situations. - th_motorlabs_d_mh3_1 slot id: th_motorlabs_d_mh3 "); } Moving on to the cockpit, with the Seat Arona we find ourselves seeing a revolution rather than a restyling. The technological commitment was important, so much so that it led to some changes also in the design. The new infotainment monitor goes from 8 to 9.2 inches now above the dashboard (it was previously in a lowered position). The graphics have been renewed, as well as updated the features and compatibility with the various devices to which the "hola hola" voice assistant is added to activate driving support or on-board features. As an option we find the digital display for the instrument panel: 350 euros is its cost, but it is worth it all for the completeness of the information made available. On the other hand, the interior is good, the interiors are accessible and spacious, with quality upholstery materials.

If we can define flaws we find instead that the frames of the vents are not up to the quality that you breathe inside the car, however it is a matter of personal taste and they do not in any way affect the efficiency of the air conditioner. To take the Seat Arona home, you start from € 20,350 for the entry level, with a series of equipment that is already quite rich and that counts LED lights, the Seat connect system, the lane change warning device and the fatigue detection system. .

In the Style version, cruise control, rear parking sensors, leather steering wheel and gear lever and Seat full link wireless are added. The top of the range Xperience and FR are characterized by a more “raw” look ready for roughness (the former), or by a more aggressive look in the case of the latter. Both are equipped with 17 ”alloy wheels, contrast roof and mirrors, dual zone climate, keyless system and rain sensor. To complete the novelties, instead, there are 10 different body colors and 17 and 18-inch wheels with a renewed design. The final price for both final packages is 27,900 euros. In general, Seat Arona has really convinced us and we consider it a complete and valid car in its segment.
