This new Seat Arona model is going to be a crossover or small SUV. Based on its segment in the market, this model is going to take serious rivals in the market like Opel Mokka, Peugeot 2008, Renault Captur, and, of course, Nissan Juke. There are not many details revealed during the official confirmation. But, SEAT plans to build the car based on AO platform and smaller MQB architecture. This should be more than interesting enough.
Named after a city in Spanish, this Arona small SUV is going to use Ibiza as its based model with unique and special tweaks here and there.
