The Arona is the smallest of Seat’s SUVs. It promises a practical cabin, an enjoyable drive and a healthy list of standard kit. Most buyers looking for a car of this size opt for petrol power, so we’re testing the 1.0 TSi 115FR, priced at £20,405.

But, can a 1.0-litre engine handle towing duties, or will the Arona struggle to pull a lightweight caravan? Is the Seat stable at speed, and is there enough space for holiday luggage?
