Seat reveals facelifted Ateca


Seat has refreshed the Ateca mid-size SUV, introducing new technology, a revised appearance and new engines.

The new car promises a fully connected user experience plus improved levels of safety, comfort and efficiency.

External changes include new front and rear bumpers, a redesigned grille and new LED headlights.

Seat has also revived Xperience trim level, which sits at the top of the range and provides a more rugged appearance.

Inside, there’s a new infotainment system with 8.25- or 9.25- inch touchscreens, depending on trim level. There is also a digital cockpit, a voice recognition system and connected services.

Seat says the new Ateca has been given an uplift in quality, with new door card designs and improved plastics.

Driver assistance systems include Predictive Adaptive Cruise Control, Side and Exit Assist and Front Assist with Pre-Crash braking.

The petrol engine line-up includes a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI, a four-cylinder 1.5-litre TSI and a 2.0-litre TSI with 4Drive all-wheel-drive.

There is also a 2.0-litre TDI with 115PS or 150PS, both of which are Euro 6d compliant. All-wheel-drive can be specified on the 150PS engine.

The new Ateca will be offered in SE, SE Technology, FR, FR Sport and Xperience trims, with prices expected from around £23,000.

Full specifications including CO2 emissions, are expected to be published when the car goes on sale in July.
