I own a SeatArosa 1.4 tdi for almost a year now, and I absolutely love this car. It is incredibly powerful for it's size and class, economical, excellent for driving in the city due to it's tiny size.
Everyone keeps saying it is not a good car for long trips, but I really enjoy driving it at highways - the little monster can handle up to 170 km/h (it's not stable at this speed, but handles perfectly well 130-140 km/h).
It's clearance is great - if you end up at a terrible road the car will manage to go through it without any problems.
The only cons I see about it is the tiny space at the back seats and tiny trunk.
