Introducing the SEAT Ateca

The SEAT Ateca is a mid-sized SUV that offers a stylish exterior appearance and a practical cabin design that is loaded with technology.

Introduced in 2016, the Ateca became the spiritual successor to the Altea, which was known for its flexibility and efficiency. Ever since then, this smart-looking SUV has become a firm favourite among UK motorists, who appreciate its distinctive silhouette and economical range of engines.

Ateca sits in the middle of SEAT's range of SUVs, so if you're after a car that offers the driving dynamics of a hatchback without compromising on everyday practicality, then you won't go wrong with this model.

Design and Practicality

SEAT Ateca Rear

Spanish flair is clearly on display with the Ateca, which boasts strong lines that are complemented by subtle features, such as the full LED headlights and contemporary alloy wheels designs (start at 17" diameter). There's ten different exterior colours to choose from for good measure.

The cabin is logical and spacious, making it easy to familairise yourself with the controls while passengers get comfortable. Getting access to the is simple because of the large doors, which open nice and wide (ideal for fitting a child's seat into the isofix anchor points).

SEAT Ateca has a boot space of 485 litres, which grows to 1,605 litres once the rear seats have been folded flat. In short, you will never struggle on the weekly shopping trip.

Technology and Safety

SEAT Ateca Interior

Driver aids and safety features include:

  • Adaptive cruise control

  • Blind spot detection
  • Lane Assist
  • Front assist and Pedestrian Protection

Economy and Performance

SEAT Ateca Front, Driving

You certainly aren't short on engine choices, because Ateca is available with two petrol engines and three diesels.

The entry-level 1.0-litre TSI unit produces 112 bhp and is only available with a manual gearbox on 'SE' and 'SE Technology' specifications. A punchier 1.5-litre unit is available throughout the range and has an output of 147 bhp; it can also be selected with a DSG-automatic gearbox for better efficiency. Expect between 49.6 and 54.3 mpg.

A 1.6-litre producing 112 bhp represents the entry diesel engine, while those who want more power will need to go for the 2.0-litre TDI unit, which is available with either 147 or 186 bhp. If you want SEAT's 4Drive system (all-wheel drive) then you'll need to opt for this unit with a DSG-auto gearbox. Up to 64.2 mpg can be achieved with these diesel engines.
