The Seat Arona is a subcompact crossover SUV (B-segment in Europe) by the Spanish brand Seat and manufactured by Volkswagen Group. It is the smallest crossover ever marketed by the brand. It uses the VAG Group’s MQB A0 platform, so it shares many components with the Audi A1, Seat Ibiza, Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Cross, among others. It was presented at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show and went on sale that same year.
The Arona competes with some compact SUVs in its segment, such as the Ford EcoSport, Citroën C3 Aircross, Renault Captur, Kia Stonic, Peugeot 2008, Hyundai Kona and many others. There is only one generation of this vehicle so far.
