SEAT Arona Facelift hatchback prototype spotted on tests

The journalists published photos from the tests of the updated SEAT Arona hatchback. The novelty, which will debut in the second half of 2021, has been covered in camouflage.

Spy photos taken last September show the SEAT Arona crossover covered in camouflage that hides small exterior changes. Four months later, a new batch of similar images emerged, showing that the car has not lost any camouflage, although it differs slightly from the test car seen last year. New photos show the popular crossover tested in winter ahead of its likely debut in the second half of 2021.

Photos show a white test crossover with front and rear fully enclosed.

Camouflage extends from the front bumper to the top of the windshield and covers the rear and bumper.

However, the camouflage cannot hide the new lower grille or air intakes adjacent to the edges of the bumper. At the rear, camouflage hides a redesigned rear bumper, although the tailpipes have a slightly different trapezoidal shape, which could possibly indicate a new engine.

The model is expected to receive the necessary mid-cycle updates such as improved headlights and taillights, a redesigned grille and other minor changes. This mid-life update means that previously offered motors will likely not be modified. The crossover already has a solid line of engines – turbo petrol, diesel and natural gas engines. There are rumors of a hybrid powerplant that may appear on the crossover; however, this remains speculation. No major changes are expected in the interior.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that 70 detonators effectively ruined the old SEAT Ibiza. A video appeared on the foreign YouTube channel Beyond The Press, which shows how an old hatchback SEAT Ibiza was decided to be pretty spoiled with a small amount of explosives.
