Shell V-Power: Fuelling your passions
Thursday 1st June


What should I be paying?

Seat says it has simplified the buying process by removing most options. Instead there are a simple line of take-it-or-leave-it trims. That kicks off with SE, where prices start at £19,600 for the 94bhp three-cylinder with 17-inch wheels, LED lights a contrast colour roof and cruise control. Not bad at all.

Up from that is the SE Technology. That starts at £20,510 and adds the larger infotainment screen with navigation and some rear parking sensors.

The range then splits into two, with a couple of sportier-looking options in the form of the FR and FR Sport. The former gets 17-inch wheels and the latter 18s. Then there are the more equipment-heavy XPERIENCE and XPERIENCE Lux trims. Worth noting that only the FR Sport can be combined with the most powerful 1.5-litre four-cylinder though – prices for that kick off at £25,395. 

The larger engine doesn’t affect fuel economy as much as you’d expect. All Aronas claim mpg figures in the 40s regardless of engine or gearbox. You will pay more for insurance if you want four cylinders – the 1.5 is in Group 19E in the UK whereas a base-spec SE with 94bhp is 9E. 

Seat will do a range of finance deals of course, with prices starting at £199 per month with just a £1,500 deposit at the time of writing.
