The seat is traditionally regarded as the slightly distracted brand of the Volkswagen Group – it has no selection of cars to carry on its trendy and youthful marketing campaign, and is not cheap enough to shy away from the buyers’ historically-priced Skoda badges.
But recently it has a purple patch, as it fixes its popular Ibiza system, delivering impressive mid-sized ATV SUVs and generally focusing on cars that attract young buyers.
The small Aeronautica came behind – a car that will compete in the crowded market that includes older veterans in the form of the Hyundai Kona, the new Citroen C3 Aircross, the Kia Stonic and Peugeot 2008, as well as Nissan Juke and Mini Kuntyman.
Size does not matter
One of the first things to note about the seat Aaron is its thin texture. It’s only 1780mm long and 4,138mm tall, and it’s not much bigger than the smaller seat Ibiza – but the higher ground clearance and slightly thicker bodywork give it the impression of a larger car.
The size of the box structure means that the inner packaging is more generous than the sport cousin and has enough space for five adults to sit comfortably.
Shoes that swallow 400 liters of things. Better yet, there is a smart smoothing boot floor which means the space can be used smarter.
On the road, the car appears compact enough to access the busy city streets, and a great view from the front makes parking very easy.
The rear view can be improved, but a wider range of parking sensors is available on more expensive models if you need a little extra help.
One of the best things about the Arona is its relatively large mass – about 1,200kg and it feels sticky and flexible, ensuring that a team of tiny tiny motors doesn’t work hard to push the weight along.
Design and technology
The final aeronaut is still preserved, despite the original design concepts and graphics promise to enclose the massive metal wheel, loose-fitting roof line and lower level harness lining.
In all honesty, this is a bit gentle from some angles, and some early models can look quite vanilla – especially when they are decorated in white with small wheels and black plastic fenders.
However, the interior is as firm and smart as we all expect from a VW Group product, and the technology presented is smart, responsive and easy-to-use.
Basic SE layers come with a 5-inch color touch screen, USB port, Ax-in, FM / AM radio and a simple four-speaker system.
But one step ahead of SE technology is the 8-inch touch screen that opens touch and navigation and the impressive full link feature of the seat, which combines MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into one system. In short, there is no smartphone on earth that can’t be connected in any way.
Selecting Fully Customized Acceleration First Edition Models Customers get a bit audio system with a 300W amplifier at boot, while Luxury Excellence and Excellence Lux models get a full suite of active safety systems with additive cruise control and detection.
All of the above technologies are extremely accessible, most of which use a clear, responsive touch screen system. Granted, it may not be as fancy as Volvo’s SensasConnect, but it certainly does the job.
An impressive trip
While nothing new or completely different from other devices in the VW range, the new Aerona suspension and chassis seem to be clicking on British roads.
The journey is truly enjoyable and forgiving for destructive things but it manages to avoid the terrifying fascination of other high-driving crossovers of this national proverb.
Seat customers have chosen to make the shopping experience as easy as possible, instead of looking at them with a long list of custom extras, residents simply discover the exterior color and engine.
As a result, switching between power plant ranges becomes very easy, power output as a petrol replica with the choice of a 1.0-liter petrol engine with 95hp or 115hp, the Evo 150hp in the FR Sport version, or a 1.6-liter diesel engine provided by the same two. .
It is surprising how well the petrol engine is capable of inducing acceleration at the highest speeds, though pushing it to the upper limit of its revolving range can be a bit noisy.
It does have to be juggling enough gear to keep it in the right power range but it is unlikely to be powered by many owners, and it’s a shame because it’s actually pretty cool for a small SUV when you’re driving.
The Evo 1.5-liter engine is obviously the most natural fit for anyone who wants a perfect performance, while the Diesel on the other hand delivers an impressive 70MP of combined cycle.
