2022 SEAT Arona and Ibiza design

You get some new silver bits on the Arona

Both the SEAT Arona and Ibiza have been given visual changes as part of this refresh, although you’ll need to be a die-hard SEAT nerd to spot some of the cosmetic upgrades.

The new SEAT Arona sports redesigned bumpers, with the most significant changes being the introduction of circular fog lights underneath the main headlamps plus silver-painted trimmings at the front and rear.

Both the Ibiza and Arona get LED headlights as standard now

The tweaks are even more subtle on the Ibiza. You get some new ‘Ibiza’ script on the bootlid in a fancy cursive font and LED headlights come as standard across the range. The Arona gets these more efficient LED lights as standard, too, and both cars come with a choice of new alloy-wheel designs.

2022 SEAT Arona and Ibiza interior

Changes inside the interiors of both cars are pretty minimal

Interior changes are minimal for both the SEAT Arona and Ibiza, though both get new infotainment options — all versions come equipped with an 8.25-inch screen out of the box while higher-spec models get a bigger 9-inch screen.

You can have a 10.25-inch digital driver’s display on both the SEAT Arona and Ibiza too, along with ambient lighting throughout.

The engine line-up for both cars is untouched

The existing SEAT Arona and Ibiza engines have been carried over for the new cars. You can choose from two 1.0-litre turbocharged engines with either 95 or 110hp, and a 150hp 1.5-litre unit.
