Arona set to drive SEAT to another top year

SEAT is a brand on the march and after a big year with three new models, they are one of the only car companies in Ireland to increase their sales this year. It’s an impressive return and their latest new car, the SEAT Arona in the small SUV/Crossover sector should set SEAT up for another bumper year in 2018.

It was officially unveiled to the Irish market at The Heritage Hotel in Laois recently, and by any marker it comes up trumps for its tidiness and its build quality. This is the fastest growing segment in the motor industry this year and SEAT is now right up there with the many new arrivals in the sector.

Following on from the upgrading of the Leon and the new Ibiza, the all-new SEAT Arona is the brand’s third new model release in 2017 and is yet another addition to the SEAT range, which also includes the Ateca SUV and the upcoming large seven-seat SUV that will be released in late 2018.

It features technology such as Front Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Hill Hold control, Fatigue Detection, Rain and Headlight Sensors, Multi-Collision Brake, and a Keyless Entry and Start System.

There is also a Rear Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Detection and Park Assistance System.

Like the Leon, Ateca and Ibiza, the new SEAT Arona offers four trim levels: S, SE, FR and XCELLENCE trims.
