Introduction

What Car? says...

It wasn’t that long ago that the Seat Arona was just a twinkle in the Spanish brand’s eye. When Seat decided to jump on the SUV bandwaggon (and why wouldn't they?), its first model to hit the road was the bigger family SUV, the Ateca. This was a fine first effort, winning a major gong at the 2016 What Car? Car of the Year awards. The Arona arrived hot on its heels, or perhaps rear wheels, a short while later.

Called after a small municipality in Tenerife (Seat has a long-standing tradition of using places in its native Spain and surrounding territories when naming its model), the Arona is based on the Seat Ibiza (its small hatchback). That makes it a small SUV of roughly the same size as the Ford Puma and Volkswagen T-Cross, but a little shorter than the Skoda Kamiq.
