Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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)

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:

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

The Vauxhall Grandland X is decently practical, safe and good value for money. However, the mixed interior quality might put you off

Pros
Comfy over bumps
Spacious inside
All models well equipped

Cons
Sluggish infotainment
Top-spec cars are expensive
No four-wheel drive option

Everyone’s crossing over these days…In cars, that is, as the ‘crossover SUV’ continues to barge ahead in popularity. One of the latest is the Vauxhall Grandland X. This model is the second to come out of Vauxhall’s takeover by Peugeot and based on their 3008.

Pros
Attractive interior
Roomy and comfortable
Overall good value

Cons
It's a crowded market

By:

Pros
SUV completes line-up of three new X-branded family cars
Promise of ample personalisation options and cutting-edge tech
Well-equipped for the money, all offered with Vauxhall OnStar

CONS
Limited range of engines from launch
No four-wheel drive version for adventurous types
Most powerful engine is a pricey upgrade
