SEAT has released its third new model of the year with the arrival of the new SEAT Arona. After the upgraded Leon and the launch of a new Ibiza, this is yet another addition to the SEAT range and their second SUV in recent times.

And, they are not done yet because in addition to this new model, and the Ateca SUV that they introduced late last year, they have plans for a new large seven-seat SUV that will be available in late 2018.

For now, the Arona sits neatly within the SUV range as the younger brother to the Ateca with much of the same driving assistance and infotainment systems, such as Front Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Hill Hold control, Fatigue Detection, Rain and Headlight Sensors and Multi-Collision Brake.

Other highlights include: Keyless Entry and Start System, precise and high-quality rear camera, premium 8″ black panel touchscreen, wireless charger with GSM signal amplifier are also available as part of SEAT’s commitment to delivering the very best technology.

Rear Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Detection and Park Assistance System, which works for both parallel and angle parking, are all included in the impressive offering.

In terms of connectivity, Arona features Apple Car Play, Android Auto and Mirror Link. In the sound department, the all-new SEAT Arona features optional BeatsAudio with 6 premium speakers, a 300W 8-channel amplifier and a subwoofer in the boot.

Like the Leon, Ateca and Ibiza, the SEAT Arona comes in S, SE, FR and XCELLENCE trims. The FR trim includes optional dual-mode suspension, and the SEAT Drive Profile with four modes: Normal, Sport, Eco and Individual.
