Any one own/waiting for their arona? Have yet to see one on the road yet.

If yes, mind sharing your drive experience and servicing cost? Really like it a lot but just afraid of the resale price in the future.

I test drove it, feels like any VW 1.0 but the build quality is not near VW but still good enough. Plastic panel feels cheap but that's where your saving comes from.

 

Arona FR now is 104k from 98k few months ago. 104K for a taller and longer Ibiza seems a bit too costly.

Any entry level Skoda is still better than the Arona/Ibiza interior quality... maybe only the Ateca onwards is better to compare with Skoda sort of quality.

I had a chance to try out Rapid (the higher end one that cost $95k) , i feel its better than FR in terms of the plastic at door side and dash top. Not a lot better, but better enough to tell the different. 

 

Its a close call, one is Skoda with backing from VCS , while SEAT is from a rather unknown company that is successful in other biz. 

 

Looks wise i like FR , but if u incl warranty, support, fitting quality...  Skoda might hv a upper hand.

 

But i guess its up to individual which one they go, wont go too wrong... both cars are fun n cheap to run+drive.

I ordered an Arona FR in Jan and got it in May. I just took it up to Penang (with a side trip to Genting) - the car is plenty powerful enough for the trip, even passing most cars on the drive up to Genting. Handling was secure (tho no fun at all), roadholding good, ride was generally ok, and noise was intrusive only if you break the speed limit. I’m quite pleased with it overall - I’d be happy to share more if anyone’s interested. Overall about 6litres/100km.

I’m quite pleased with it overall - I’d be happy to share more if anyone’s interested. Overall about 6litres/100km.

 

Thks for the write up. Yes the 1.0 is a nice engine... just not meant to push it hard to anything too high speed like 140-150kmh. But anything below 120/130kmh is perfectly fine. I was happy too with the test drive. FR feature is also as complete u can get... it has a long list of feature where u only can get it in VW Highline EQP series. 

 

I think the only thing i find is the SEAT pricing is not enough to convince the mass buyer to dip in. when COE at 33-35k Arona FR was at 98k-102k. Now that COE is at 25k the price is still 98K. Should it be at maybe 94k?

 

If you want something similar, 95k get you the high spec Skoda Rapid. Both such carhaveas its pro n con and also u earn some and lose some in features. Howeve,r Skoda is backup by VCS so that is one added advantage.

 

SEAT shld lower their price 5 to 10k from current levels, then I think people will start to give it a try. Else if its similar to VW/Skoda, many will still prefer to stick to a brand with proven support track record.

Agreed, their pricing should be lowered to compete in the market and they should also improve their customer and after sales services.
