With Ateca SEAT on the market, the signing of Martorell is already thinking about a new SUV. Following the tradition not written in SEAT of call to their models with names of towns Spanish, the new Member could be the SEAT Arona (locality belonging to Santa Cruz of Tenerife). Come to the market on 2017, date planned also for the new generation of the SEAT Ibiza. With this SUV, Seat could give relief to the unsuccessful SEAT Ibiza ST and pass entering the increasingly more juicy B-SUVsegment.
This denomination has appeared collected between them latest denominations registered in the Office of patents European, what has caused that the alarms is turn on. However in SEAT nor confirm nor deny the information, making that all the world of by made that will be the name of the new small SUV. However, part of reason us them missing since the proximity in the launch of the new generation of the Ibiza occurred the launch of a variant with appearance off road.
In addition, following the logic, the next Volkswagen Polo also fell, and with it the Volkswagen Polo Crossover. Therefore if we add two more two, will have that, both Ibiza as Polo will share platform (premiering it the Ibiza) and by this, also will have as brothers on high to two SUV urban, by what not is nothing Loopy give credibility to these rumors.
With regard to data technical and mechanical still is soon to know for certain how will be configured the new SEAT Arona. Yes know that will be supported on the modern platform MQB in its version cropped, by what could not have traction to the four wheels; Although if you could assemble a traction with expanded functions controlPSA Grip Control style.
At the aesthetic level, it is expected to save certain elements in common with the Ibiza, but you could have an image more marked and muscular, differing a little from his brother’s range. Otherwise, there will be that wait to SEAT confirm them rumors and this definitely a concept that of entity itself to the new SEAT Arona, or as want that is call.
