It is no easy feat treading the fine line between robust practicalities and sporting good looks. Enter the SEAT Ateca: the car you can be proud to have on the drive and can rely on in any situation. Daily school runs and trips away have never been so sophisticated.
Everything about the exterior of the SEAT Ateca booms confidence. From its two honeycomb grilles to the angular headlights and sturdy bumpers, it lets you know that it handle tough drives. Optional roof rails make long trips away with sports gear even easier and dark tinted rear windows prevent glare for your passengers whilst adding sporty style. To add another dimension to the drives and please the crowd in the back seats, opt for the SE trim level and choose the panoramic sunroof.
Thanks to its curved bonnet and sharp exterior lines, it looks just as at home in the city as it does crawling through the rugged country lanes. LED headlights and LED daytime running lights give the Ateca a sharper profile and make sure you are unmissable on the roads.
Comfort and practicality go hand in hand inside the Ateca. A high seating position gives you a full view of the road ahead while the choice of leather or a strong cloth have been purposely chosen to withstand everyday rigours. 510 litres of space in the boot will fit the pushchairs, bags and sports gear without a hitch.
You can choose the right ambience for your drives with a wide selection of different lighting colours, ranging from cool grey through to vivid red and calming green.
Upgrade to the SE and FR to get everyone comfortable with dual-zone air conditioning and arm rests. Lumbar adjustment is also included in the superior trim levels for the front seats to keep you and your comrade well-supported on long drives.
There are a five engine choices to choose from; two petrol and three diesel. Petrol choices include the 1.0-litre TSI 115PS Ecomotive and the 1.4-litre Eco-TSI 150PS. Diesel engines start at the 1.6-litre TDI 115PS Ecomotive and go up to the 2.0-litre 190PS versions, one of which has dual-clutch technology for smoother gearbox transmissions. The 1.4-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engines are only available with the SE and above trim levels and the latter is the fastest of the group, achieving top speeds of 125mph.
Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert notify you or automatically stop the car if an obstacle is dangerously close by. Front Assist helps you to retain a safe distance from the car in front, warning you or slowing down the car when the gap closes. Urban driving is easier and safer thanks to the City Emergency Braking system which quickly stops the car if it detects a pedestrian. These features all come as standard to ensure you and your family are kept safe while on the road.
Opt for the Driving Assistance Pack which includes Lane Assist, High Beam Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition: Lane Assist keeps you in a steady line on the motorway; Traffic Sign Recognition lets you know the correct speed limit and travel restrictions for the road; and High Beam Assist automatically dips the headlights to reduce glare for other drivers.
On the dashboard sits a five-inch touchscreen (eight-inch in the SE, FR AND XCELLENCE trim levels) that plays host to the media system. SE, FR & XCELLENCE variants feature for Full Link Technology – a handy system that connects to your phone apps so you can stay connected while on the move. In the XCELLENCE, you can charge compatible phones using a wireless charger so you are never left without all-important battery.
A rear view reversing camera is available in the upper trim levels, helping you to avoid a glitch on the paintwork whilst parking. Cruise control and satellite navigation are also on offer, taking the stress from your ankles and the guesswork out of finding the best route. SEAT Drive Profile is included (not in the 1.0-litre TSI Engine) which allows you to shift between five driving modes: Normal, Eco, Sport, Individual, Off Road and Snow. Switch from one to the other and the Ateca will automatically adjust its mechanical components, like the steering and traction, for the optimum experience.
