SEAT introduces new Arona
The brand-new SEAT Arona, proceeding the hugely successful Ateca, has received outstanding whole life cost (HLC) estimates to bolster its appeal to prospective fleet buyers.
Launching on the 17th of November, the Arona is rated from 51.13p per mile over its lifetime, with entry level Arona SE 1.0 TSI 95PS retaining 41% of its value after three years and 60,000 miles. Along with keen SMR costs and excellent fuel efficiency, the projection means the Arona is highly competitive on price.
The new Arona is being offered in six trims, each equipped with features today’s customers want and which will help the vehicle retain its value. The approach simplifies the decision-making process in respect of new WLTP emissions standards, enabling buyers to navigate the more complex structure of rules far more easily.
The range includes a variety of petrol and diesel engines including the much-lauded turbo-charged 1.0 TSI 115PS engine, which delivers up to a frugal 57.6 mpg and emits as little as 113 grams per kilometre of CO2.
SEAT UK head of fleet and business sales, Peter McDonald, commented, ‘More than ever, customers are focused on getting the best value for total cost of ownership, and cap’s figures make the Arona one of the most inviting propositions for fleet decision-makers.
‘At every stage of its development we’ve looked to make the Arona a compact crossover that does things differently: giving drivers a dynamic, stylish car to enjoy without compromising on providing businesses with competitive pricing and exceptional whole-life costs.
‘With the Arona already making waves in one of the fastest-growing segments, we can now boast a competitively-priced and burgeoning model portfolio which also includes the Leon, Ateca and All-new Ibiza. The range has flourished into one of the most tempting and comprehensive propositions for businesses of all shapes and sizes.’
