Review

The Arona remains a great choice in the small SUV class, and one that 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, too. The Ford Puma is even better to drive, though, and the Skoda Kamiq is roomier, more comfortable and plusher inside.

get the best price

This range-topping trim is based on the regular Xcellence but adds micro-suede seats, 18in alloy wheels, digital instruments (Digital cockpit), heated front seats and washer nozzles, front parking sensors, a rear-view camera and Seat's self-parking system. However, you’ll be spending the sort of cash that would get you a bigger or possibly premium-brand SUV.

We're yet to try this engine.
