Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Arona is perfectly ok, but Seat found it too easy to leap on the small-crossover bandwagon. They just faxed it in. Get a Leon instead.

Pros
Decent chassis,
good infotainment system and tech

Cons
Updated cabin still a little drab,
trim levels restrict your kit choices

By:

Pros
Looks great
Well equipped across the range
Nice and easy to drive

Cons
Tight on space for rear passengers
Lags behind on boot space
Some cheap-feeling interior bits
