B-segment crossovers are a real fashion craze of recent years. Every major brand must offer such a car. It is no different in the case of Seat, which has successfully sold the Arona model since 2017. At Motofakta, we look at whether it is worth buying such a car from the secondary market.
Aron debuted in 2017. The car was built on the basis of the MQB-A0 floor plate shared, among others, with Seat Ibiza and Volkswagen Polo. A car rolls off the assembly line in Martorell, Spain. The model discussed is related to the cars mentioned above not only in terms of design, but also technical solutions – the cars share the drive units. At the time of writing, the facelifted versions are not yet available in retailers. A car upgrade is planned for 2021.
Gone are the days when no more than two adults could drive vehicles in the B category. The Arona, measuring 4138 mm, will transport two more adults in the back seat in good comfort. The interior design is similar to that of the Ibiza. The finishing materials are also the same, which – to put it mildly – is a bit of a disappointment. In basic versions, the rock finish of the door panels is amazing. In the best (for example FR), material input has been added to improve the organoleptic perception of all the interior elements.
