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
