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 most enjoyable cars in this class to drive, too.

FR trim is the sporty-looking option. Most of the extras you get over SE Technology trim are styling trinkets – different front and rear bumpers and privacy glass etc – although you do also gain climate control, multi-coloured ambient lighting, power-folding door mirrors, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror, bright LED headlights, an alarm and rain-sensing wipers.
Engine: 1.0 TSI 115
