Hi All
Just ordered a CX3 after cancelling Seat Arona last week.
Been told it is going to be subject to the 2018 face lift.
Had call from dealer day after placing order confirming accepted by factory.

As you see below, Ive got the same but couldnt have the safety pack on the gt sport.
Youll enjoy the autobox, proper torque converter. My 2.o petrol manual Maz 3 left most things standing coming off roundabout onto 70 dual in 3rd. Stick the cx3 into manual, itlll hang onto revs and isnt far behind
Seen one or two aronas around....... look a bit dull n boxy

Yep sounds like you got the June facelift, dipping rear view mirror etc.

We test drove the Arona. Engine needed reving to get anywhere. The interior was very disappointing, cheap & bland.

My wife test drive the arona before the cx3 and was left disappointed by it. Felt cheap and under powered.

Thanks for the welcome.
Anyone know what the full face lift includes?
The dealer was unsure.

Main difference is the electronic parking brake which frees up so much space on the centre console. New wheels look nice too. Have a read.
