The Seat is immersed in the complete renewal of its range of models after the launch of the fourth generation of the Seat León earlier this year. Shortly after, it was the turn of the Seat Ateca, which underwent its first restyling since it was originally introduced on the market in 2016 and now it is the turn of its little brother, who is preparing for what will be his first update. Today we anticipate what the new Seat Arona 2021 will be like.
The Seat Arona has proven to be a commercial success, becoming in 2019 the company’s best-selling model with more than 123,000 units worldwide. That is why at Seat they have decided to start working on the renewal of the model, a facelift that will introduce important changes in terms of design, technology, and equipment.
Seat Arona 2021: we anticipate it
Despite this, it is a mid-life facelift, so the expected changes will focus on the headlights, bumpers, and grille. The Seat will go a step further and relocate the fog lamps and give the front bumper a more sporty style following the guidelines established by the Ateca 2020. Other changes would be available at the rear, with slightly redesigned headlights and a renewed bumper. There will also be new wheel designs and more colors available in the range.
In the interior, changes are also expected that, although they will not affect the aesthetic section too much, will see Arona’s technological section reinforced. Especially thanks to the renewed information and entertainment system that will introduce improvements inherited from the latest company launches. Greater customization options will also be offered, both on the exterior with new rims and colors, and on the interior, where there will be new upholstery and trim.
No diesel or electric version in the mechanical range
In the mechanical section, Seat has not yet planned the launch of an electric Seat Arona, something for which we may have to wait until the next generation. The range of engines will be continuous and will continue to bet on gasoline as the preferred fuel. And it is that the Arona diesel will stop being available soon since the 1.6 TDI engine of the Volkswagen Group is about to be discontinued.
Thus, the Arona will be available only with gasoline engines (1.0 TSI and 1.5 TSI), as well as a TGI version of compressed natural gas (CNG) as the most efficient alternative in the family. All versions will be front-wheel drive and will offer six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch DSG automatic gearboxes.
