The great thing about the Arona is that you get so much even at the base model, very jealous isn't even close😂

I know - all Aronas are good news😄I can’t help being jealous of your early delivery. It’s seems ages until mine even gets built!!! Let us know when it arrives😄

I ordered my Mystery blue/Midnight Black - Xcellence Lux 115PS 1ltr TSI DSG on 28th February, and I am still awaiting a build week date, let alone delivery.

Hi Lynn,

I have been in touch with the dealer who tells me (ordered Feb 28th) that my build week is only pencilled in for Mid May. No firm build week yet.

It is a motability order and I have heard that 'Seat' view such sales as a captive purchase and so they get low build priority as opposed to other sales.

I am guessing it could be as long as the 32 weeks that other motability customers have told me they have had to wait.

You see, in the mean time, although my 3 year motability lease contract expires, on 27th May, motability extend it until my new vehicle is ready.

This will be my third motability vehicle, makes it 1 Skoda, and 2 Seat. Previous 'Seat' was a Leon 1.6 TDI SE DSG

At each motability renewal I have had to wait at least 20 weeks from order to collection.

So, it could be as late as August, but I am hoping late June - early July.

I just hope it is worth the wait as I have been very pleased with my Skoda Octavia - 1.4 TSI - SEL - DSG which after 3 years is just approaching 11k.

Someone will get a bargain when my Octavia is, sold on.

The Arona Xcellence Lux, is chosen for comfort and ease of getting in and out with the extra height. It will be my first experience of the 3 cylinder 1ltr 115 PS TSI engine.
On order : Mystery Blue/midnight Black roof. 1ltr TSI 115PS xcellence lux DSG.

Well FWIW my lease company confirmed my build week is 18 (Order date 5 March) which is first week of May, with delivery expected 3 to 4 weeks later.

philby123 I emailed my dealer yesterday to find out a confirmed build date! Will update when I know.

Does anyone know which port the cars come into in the UK?
