SEAT has released a new video and insight into how much work goes into developing paint tones, as it launches its new Arona SUV. Three years of research, and enough knowledge and sensitivity to market trends. That is what it takes to ensure a paint colour on a new vehicle will not only look good, but be well received by the consumer. Overall, 1,000 days pass between thinking of a colour tone to it being applied to a vehicle.
