SEAT Arona officially launched in Ireland
SEAT’s all-new compact crossover the Arona, has been officially launched in Ireland with prices starting from just €17,995. The Arona follows hot on the heels of both the new SEAT Leon and Ibiza that were launched earlier this year, and it is the brand’s latest crossover model joining the Ateca and a forthcoming large seven seater model that will be launched in 2018.
SEAT is keen to point out that the Arona is well equipped from base specification, with advanced driving and infotainment systems, and safety features such as Front Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control Fatigue Detection, Multi-Collision brake and more. The Arona is highly-connected too, with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Link featured as standard, while there is an optional BeatsAudio premium sound system for music lovers.
The Arona will be available with three different petrol engines in Ireland, with 95hp and 115hp 1.0-litre TSi versions among those available. Diesel options will include SEAT’s popular 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine in 95hp or 115hp versions, while buyers can also opt for manual gearbox or an automatic seven-speed DSG transmission depending on the engine. The Arona is available in four different trim levels; S, SE, FR and XCELLENCE, while highlights from the higher specification models include keyless entry and start, a premium 8-inch touch screen infotainment system, wireless charging and a reversing camera.
The Arona will start from €17,995 and is available with PCP finance at 2.9% during SEAT’s 181 campaign.
