Revised Seat Arona takes shape for 2021

Published: 15 April 2021

► Updated Arona gets chunkier
► Engine tweaks and tech refresh
► Goes into production in autumn 2021

Update time for the Seat Arona crossover, the same day the brand also announced tweaks to the Ibiza supermini.

Along with new colours, wheels and LED lights as standard, the Arona gains some pustulous new lights on its front bumper. The rear gains a fresh spoiler and diffuser, too.

But the biggest differences come in terms of tech. Seat says the new Arona can be fitted with Travel Assist, the semi-autonomous driver assistance pack that bundles adaptive cruise, lane keep and traffic sign recognition together, and fully digital dials are available too. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both available, too, via the brand’s Full Link connectivity suite.

As for the Arona’s powertrains, all of them are turbocharged and petrol. The range starts with a 94bhp version linked to a five-speed manual, with 108bp and 148bhp petrol engines allowing the choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch auto.

You can order a new Arona later in 2021, as production starts in autumn this year.
