Used SEAT Ateca for sale
When the SEAT Ateca was launched, it was the Spanish manufacturer's first attempt at an SUV, but you wouldn't be able to tell. A great solution if you're after something bigger than the SEAT's Arona, but not quite as big as their Tarraco.
The competitive family SUV market requires brands to differentiate from one another in order to be successful. The Ateca does so by conforming to SEAT's usual sporty styling and by playing host to a wide range of benefits, such as:
- Well-equipped as standard
- Excellent safety rating
- Reasonably priced
- Decent running costs
- Spacious interior
Discover the features of the SEAT Ateca in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
Offering responsive steering and a firmer suspension setup than others in its class, the SEAT Ateca's driving experience aligns with its sporty exterior. Comfort doesn't have to be sacrificed though, thanks to comfortable seats within the cabin, making the Ateca a great all-rounder.
- 1.0-litre: 110bhp, 52mpg.
- 1.4-litre: 147bhp, 53mpg.
- 1.5-litre: 147bhp, 51mpg.
- 2.0-litre: 187bhp, 40mpg.
- 1.6-litre: 113bhp, 61mpg.
- 2.0-litre: 147bhp, 60mpg.
- 2.0-litre: 190bhp, 53mpg.
Both automatic (DSG) and manual gearboxes exist across the range, along with four-wheel drive (4Drive) options.
Practicality and Running Costs
The Ateca uses the same wheelbase as its smaller sibling, the SEAT Leon, meaning it doesn't top its class when it comes to interior space. However, by no means is it small. It still manages to match competitors and has plenty of headroom thanks to its tall dimensions.
The rear doors provide a wide opening, which is great for accessing the ISOFIX mounting points that reside within the rear seats. Boot space is also good, providing 510 litres in its standard form (485 litres if opting for a 4Drive variant), increasing to 1,604 litres with the seats folded down. All specifications of the Ateca have towing capabilities of at least 670kg unbraked, but the larger engine variants offer more pulling power.
Running costs are reasonable, with most variants residing within insurance groups 10 to 20 (out of 50). Any Evans Halshaw dealership is also able to deal with any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
As always, SEAT have supplied a high-quality and comfortable interior within the Ateca. The driver's position is well-situated, with all controls being easily accessible for whoever's behind the wheel.
The Ateca also comes well-equipped with a range of great kit as standard. The entry-level SE specification offers Full Link smartphone integration, an 8.25-inch touchscreen and cruise control. Higher specification variants such as the Xcellence unlock further features, including a rear parking camera and navigation system.
The Ateca also ensures your family can be transported in the safest possible manner, being awarded the full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Further confidence is provided thanks to a wide range of safety features, such as:
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Park assist (self parking functionality)
- Tiredness recognition system
- Lane assist
- Traffic sign recognition
Is the SEAT Ateca right for me?
If you're in the used car market for a great all-round SUV then the SEAT Ateca is a viable candidate. Featuring a wide range of benefits such as an engaging driving experience, a practical boot, and a good amount of technology, SEAT have ensured the Ateca can compete within its class.
However, other alternatives such as the Skoda Karoq offer slightly bigger boot spaces and practical features such as individually sliding rear seats. If you're after something flashier, the Volkswagen Tiguan or futuristically styled Peugeot 3008 are great options.
Nevertheless, the SEAT Ateca is an excellent, reasonably-priced choice and is definitely worth considering.
