The Seat Arona remains a great choice in the small SUV category, and it undercuts many of its rivals on price. It'll prove spacious enough inside for most people and is one of the more enjoyable cars in this class to drive. Overall, we prefer the nimbler Ford Puma and more spacious Skoda Kamiq, but that shouldn't stop the Arona featuring high up on your shopping list.

Entry-level SE trim gets you 17in alloys, cruise control, air conditioning, basic ambient interior lighting, automatic headlights, a height-adjustable boot floor, front fog lights, a 6.5in colour touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a contrasting roof colour and metallic paint. We’d still recommend upgrading to SE Technology, which gets you a much better infotainment system as well as rear parking sensors.

If you're looking for a little more power or an automatic gearbox, you'll appreciate the 1.0 TSI 110. With 108bhp, this engine pulls better from low revs and feels more energetic in every situation. You can have a manual gearbox or a DSG automatic, which flicks through the gears quickly and smoothly. If you regularly travel on the motorway with a full car, this engine is well worth considering.
