SEAT Arosa (97-04)

Value

4 out of 5

For just under 6 grand I don't think you can knock it.

Costs

2 out of 5

20k service was £200. My old Fiesta never cost more than £130 for any service.

Driving

3 out of 5

It's not bad for a small car.

Performance

3 out of 5

It's better than I expected round town. Struggles a bit if you don't push it on long inclines.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems with reliability.

Image

4 out of 5

Seat's image, as a manufacturer, is improving all the time and the Arosa does look the part, especially in black.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Front of cabin feels quite roomy due to high head room. The back seats are strictly for the kids though. I enjoy driving the car.

Security

3 out of 5

Only standard door locks. Bit poor really.

Service

2 out of 5

Shocking aftersales service from the dealership. Have changed dealer for servicing and they have redeemed the image for Seat a little.

Rear brakes sound like they're binding in the wet. Boot release/lock is very fiddley. I'd probably go for remote central locking next time.
