Compact crossover Seat Arona is preparing for restyling

The smallest SUV in Seat’s lineup is the Arona. The car, technically related to the Ibiza model, is three years old, so now is the time for an update.

The Seat Arona, introduced in 2017, became the first in the Volkswagen Group’s three compact crossovers, which later included the Volkswagen T-Cross and Skoda Kamiq. In terms of design, the Arona keeps up with the likes of the Ibiza and Ateca, but to keep the model up to date, Seat is working on a facelift.

Arona, spotted by photo spies and still hidden behind camouflage film, does not appear to have undergone any major changes. It is noteworthy that the Arona does not even have the same updated headlights that recently appeared in the upgraded Ateca. At the front, the crossover will receive an enlarged grille and a revised bumper. It is likely that Seat is also revamping the Arona’s interior with an updated infotainment system and new trim materials.

As far as the engine line-up goes, it’s unlikely that the Arona will suddenly be available with more electrified powertrains. In any case, the crossover, as reported by autoweek.nl, will receive TSI and TGI versions, and whether it will use a 95-horsepower 1.6 TDI is still in question.
