The SEAT Ateca scoops top award at the 2021 What Car? Used Car Awards.
The awards ceremony also saw for the SEAT Ateca as the best used family SUV, and the SEAT Arona as Best Used Small SUV.
The coveted award is the latest of a number already in the SEAT Ateca’s trophy cabinet, which was also named Small SUV of the Year by What Car? shortly after its launch in 2016.
The Ateca has since earned critical acclaim from across the industry, while orders have recently opened for the New SEAT Ateca in September.
With 18 What Car? Used Car of the Year categories up for grab, a panel of experts considered the all-round ability, value and the availability of desirable versions to select the eventual winners, with the Ateca named the overall winner.
In particular, What Car? praised the Ateca for offering one of the most enjoyable driving experiences in its class, without compromising on ride comfort, alongside a unique combination of all-round desirability, practicality, and outstanding value for money.
As overall winner, the Ateca was also named Family SUV of the Year while its smaller sibling, the Arona, brought home the Best Used Small SUV award.
Similar to its bigger brother, the Arona was recognised for its outstanding driving experience as well as class-leading practicality.
The awards build on SEAT’s established recognition in the used car market, with the previous generation Leon also being named What Car?’s Used Car of the Year in 2018.
