A couple of spy shots of the upcoming 2017 SEAT Arona emerged earlier but for the first time, the latest set of photographs showcase a undisguised version of the car.
It reveals a lot of interesting information and the design the team is trying to achieve with this Nissan Juke rival.
The candid shot which is actually just one captured by an unidentified photographer had been posted on the social media Instagram page. The angle showcases the rear end of the model and adds up to the rumor that a rugged looking car is underway. The two tone roof combined with the window line that points upwards and the overall aggressive look achieved by designers make this a worthy competitor for the Nissan Juke.
Throughout the months, spy shots of the 2017 SEAT Arona kept emerging from all corners. All of them were strongly disguised giving us very little idea of how the car would look like. With the minimal camouflage used in the latest snap, it confirmed that the front fascia of the model has been directly borrowed from the Ibiza. While it is supposed to be a compact SUV crossover, the rear end is similar to the larger Ateca and has been minimized so as to offer increased storage space yet looks compact on the exterior.
While the actual name for the upcoming model Arona was confirmed by the automobile manufacturer at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, it has took significant time for the crew to get the car to the official reveal. The launch event is scheduled to take place next week. When it hits dealership stores, the model will provide significant competition to the Nissan Juke and the Renault Captur.
On the inside, the car has all the most wanted features including support for Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and a convenient cabin design. It provides the space and the headroom necessary for both the driver as well as the passengers on board. The new compact crossover is constructed on top of the MQB platform, the latest one to be made available by Volkswagen. The chassis is compact, versatile and is being used in a wide range of models making them future proof. They will also be used in all other upcoming cars, both SUVs and compact crossovers. More information on the upcoming 2017 SEAT Arona is expected to be announced including specifications and performance at the launch event next week.
