Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

One of the most complete electric cars money can buy. Superb build quality, and decent to drive.

Pros
Beautifully built intuitive cabin,
effortless performance,
exceptionally cool image,

Pros
Performance Pack adjustable dampers are too firm out of the box
the look on Tesla drivers’ faces

By: 
topgear.com

The Polestar 2 is an excellent luxury electric vehicle, even if it's not as visually exciting as trendier alternatives.

Pros
Notable athleticism and quickness,
cabin materials and quality are indeed luxurious,
surprisingly intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Exterior design isn't exactly daring,
race-inspired dampers require manual adjustments,
estimated driving range is underwhelming.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Striking exterior design
Lots of standard kit and space
Very low PCP monthly payments
Plenty of personalisation
Good to drive

Cons
Plain interior design
Ride just okay on rough roads
Boot smaller than some rivals
Entry-level 95hp petrol a little underpowered
No Cupra planned (yet)

By: 
parkers.co.uk

The five-door All-New Arona, a front-wheel-drive only SUV, is well placed in this highly popular sector of the car market.It’s available with a choice of six engines, with both the diesel and petrol variants offered in either 95PS or 115 PS form, and the sporty FR 1.5 TSI EVO leaping up to 150 PS.

Pros
Very smart looking inside and out
Good choice of engines
Well equipped and overall good value

Cons
No SatNav on basic model

By: 
drive.co.uk

The Seat Arona is quite possibly the best compact SUV of the moment. Good practicality, economy and solid driving manners are all Arona staples.It lacks the visual creativity of a Hyundai Kona or the customisation of a Citroen C3 Aircross, but its real-world strengths far outweigh having orange door mirrors. It’s a level-headed car for level-headed people.

Pros
Refined 1.0-litre petrol
Ergonomic infotainment system
Good ride

Cons
Humdrum looks
Narrow middle seat
Trim levels that dictate engine choice
