The Arona's driving position is fundamentally sound, with plenty of seat adjustment and pedals that line up neatly with the steering wheel. However, some of our testers wish the steering wheel retracted slightly farther into the dashboard.
You do feel you’re a little farther from terra firma than you would be in a regular small hatchback – or rivals such as the Kia Stonic, for that matter. However, the Citroën C3 Aircross actually has a loftier driving position and Range Rover drivers still seem to be up in the clouds.
Meanwhile, the Arona's dashboard is logically ordered, with chunky, clearly labelled buttons and an air conditioning control panel that’s angled towards the driver to make it easier to read and operate while you're driving.
