Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Seat Arona hatchback?

For less money, have a look at the Suzuki Vitara. Its overly light steering won't be to everyone's taste, but the boxy shape and elevated driving position make you feel like you're driving an SUV, plus it's a pretty reliable choice that shouldn't let you down. Fuel economy is decent, too.

You'll be able to get more equipment on the equivalent Kia Stonic, plus it'll have far more manufacturer's warranty left on it than the Seat. The engine is more thrummy, though.

The quirky-looking Hyundai Kona is a close relative of the aforementioned Stonic, with similar performance and handling characteristics. There is, however, one crucial difference: electric lumbar support is standard on the driver's seat from SE spec onwards, making the Kona better for your back over long journeys.
