Re: install android on build it multimedia system?? (seat arona 2019)

It is possible in theory, but wave bye, bye to most of the functionality. You would require custom firmware to support the Linux kernel then be able to communicate with all the CANBUS for vehicle systems. I don't even know what is the base OS for VW media systems. You are better off swapping the uni...

Re: Arona 1.6 Diesel 95hp Fuel efficiency!

I have the 115 1.6 diesel and in heavy traffic is will drop to low 40's, longer run at a steady 40-70 I have seen 65-70mpg. Once, I even hit 80 mpg at a steady 40-50 over 10 miles.

There is a step up in economy past the 5000 mile mark and as Snowdaddy stated past the 3000 mile mark.

Re: arona 95 or 115hp

In simple terms yes, 95 does feel a little underpowered for the size of the car. You also only get rear drums not rear disks on the 95 so braking performance is not as good. On here issues of the handbrake not holding the car as well as it should on drum brake equipped cars. The 115 is worth the ext...

Re: Heated seats - how are they?

I find the heated seats really good in my SE Tech Lux, both the entire bottom and back section warm up fairly quickly so the entire area you sit on is warm. The heating elements are in the centre sections not the side seat bolster sections. They were well used last winter and warmed up long before t...

Re: Ordered but not delivered!!

Xxcellence Lux comes with the leatherette dash only Xcellence has the pearl white trim. Xcellence Lux came with the white trim when they stopped fitting Alcantara trim last year. SEAT UK just added extra options to compensate (BEATS + Winter pack I think) on a temporary basis - your car will be a MY...

Re: Folding seats

Glad you got it sorted.

Sometimes even the manual is a useful as a chocolate teapot! A bit of trial and error works wonders :D

Re: My Arona SE Technology has arrived.

Lovely looking car, prefer the Midnight black roof with Desire red better than the Magnetic grey with Desire red comb. Enjoy, my Arona has been faultless a year on, no squeaks, rattles and still really impressed by it overall.

Re: 1.6 115 TDi pulled...

Some European countries have both the MY19 and MY20 brochures for download, eg Bulgaria https://www.seat.bg/shopping-tools/brochure-download/arona.html Unfortunately Seat UK is not that helpful and only allows you to download the MY19 brochure Bulgaria still has 1.6 115 TDi in their MY20 brochure??...
