A super-attractive SUV that is well built and features a good-size interior, the SEAT Ateca is also very good to drive.
An assertive stance, raised ride height and appealingly muscular body all help to make the Ateca the type of vehicle that draws admiring glances. This SUV’s four wide-opening doors ensure that it is as practical as it is handsome, allowing easy access for up to five travellers. Step inside and you’ll discover a contemporary cabin with lots of head and legroom to accommodate adults in both the front and rear, as well as intuitive technology to make every journey entertaining and informed.
With a standard-issue 1.0-litre 115bhp petrol beneath its bonnet, the Ateca provides the power to haul you and your family around, without compromising on economy. This unit is ideal for urban environment, but if it’s long distance efficiency you crave, opt for a 1.6-litre 115bhp diesel unit, which returns some 3.7l/100km and produces emissions as low as 114g/km. With the option of four-wheel drive too, you can take the Ateca further afield with the utmost confidence.
An eight-speaker sound system is fitted as standard, featuring an eight-inch touchscreen display. A number of audio inputs are in place, too, as is Bluetooth connectivity, which allows audio streaming and hands-free telephony. MirrorLink is another standard inclusion, allowing you to access your Android or Apple smartphone via the Ateca’s display screen.
A five-star Euro NCAP rating is a certain indicator of this SUV’s crash-test competency. An array of passive safety features and driver aids are fitted as standard, such as multiple airbags, ISOFIX child-seat anchor points and Autonomous Emergency Braking. The latter technology substantially reduces the risk of impact with vehicles ahead of the car.
