With its quick turn of pace and sporty good looks, the Ateca CUPRA represents the pinnacle of the Ateca grades. Add impressive handling and a smooth ride to its athleticism, not to mention generous storage space, and it is clear that the new ATECA CUPRA is a winner.
A dynamic grille helps to create an impactful front-end, along with a body-coloured bumper and powerful directional LED headlights. LED lights feature on the rear of the car too; not only do they provide stronger beams than most lamps, the bulbs last longer as well. LED daytime running lights provide a distinctive light signature and ensure that the new ATECA CUPRA is visible in dark conditions.
Just below the stylish bonnet, The CUPRA logo and CUPRA badge share pride of place. The sporty CUPRA emblem adorns the red brake callipers that feature on each 19-inch titanium-finished alloy wheel, as well as on the hatchback door. A roof spoiler and dual exhaust pipes complete a stylish look to the rear.
An upmarket cabin benefits enormously from slick Alcantara upholstery. Front sports seats are not only comfortable but look good too, particularly as they feature an eye-catching white trim. Both front seats are height and lumbar-adjustable. The CUPRA logo appears on aluminium front door sill trims and on the perforated leather steering wheel, which is highlighted with white stitching. With its 485-litre capacity, the Ateca CUPRA’s boot is already a generous size. Fold the rear seats forward and that space quickly expands to 1,470 litres. A double-boot floor enables you to separate bulky items from more delicate cargo.
A six-and-a-half-inch colour touchscreen features navigation information and displays 3D maps. DAB digital radio provides crystal-clear sound quality, while Bluetooth® enables audio streaming from any compatible media device. With Easy Connect system you can sync your mobile phone and stream your favourite tunes. All audio content is channelled through ten speakers, including a boot-mounted subwoofer. Rain-sensing windscreen wipers react to precipitation, activating wipers automatically. Select your preferred driving mode with Drive Profile – choose from Normal, Sport and CUPRA. You can also choose the best elements of each to create your own individual mode.
A range of safety features come with the Ateca CUPRA. The Tiredness Recognition System analyses your steering movements to detect signs of drowsiness.
If any such symptoms are discerned, you will hear an alert which acts as a prompt for you to take a break. Lane Assist uses video technology to recognise road markings – if you inadvertently drift out of your lane, it will gently get you back on course. Front Assist with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) monitors the activity of vehicles ahead of you. If a car brakes suddenly or slows down significantly, ACC automatically applies the CUPRA’s brakes, and the car stops if necessary.
The CUPRA features a 2.0-litre petrol engine that comes with either six-speed manual or automatic transmission. It is capable of going from 0-60mph in a little over six seconds before reaching a top speed of 155mph. With pace comes power – a maximum torque of 380NM and 300PS leaves you in no doubt that the new SEAT Leon CUPRA offers a dynamic driving experience.
