2017 seat Arona has a small SUV and winter testing spied ahead of expected public debut at the IAA in Frankfurt in September and a launch at the end of the year.

Little can be seen under the Arona is difficult to disguise, but some of the Details of the head-and tail-lights, including the one of Ateca-like geometric LED design on the back.

The Arona has a smoother design than the square Ateca, although this test car’s camouflage to disguise some of the sharper folds.

The Arona is scheduled for release a few months after the new Ibiza, and is likely to share style elements with the supermini and the Ateca design is derived from the Leon.

Such as Ateca, the Arona is a off-road get-friendly X-Perience trim level, and is very likely to get four-wheel-drive in this variant, as well as on the upper trim levels.

To share the Ateca share engines with the middle of Leon, the Arona is not expected, motors and bases with the smaller Ibiza hatchback.
