Seat Ateca Cupra
The new CUPRA Ateca has been enhanced and upgraded to continue to be the ultimate dynamic performance compact SUV.
The CUPRA Ateca was the first vehicle to be launched as a standalone CUPRA in 2018, delivering the key principals of design, performance and technology, which has since been joined up by the CUPRA Leon and the cross coupe SUV, CUPRA Formentor, the first CUPRA-only vehicle introduced earlier this year.
"The CUPRA Ateca marked the brand's entry into a new segment, becoming a great success along the way, selling over 10,000 units in 2019, and allowing CUPRA to grow its position in the Ateca family - representing 15% of the mix," said CUPRA CEO Wayne Griffiths. "The high-performance SUV was the key driver in CUPRA achieving a 72% growth year on year."
A range of new additions and improvements have been made to enhance its appeal without compromise. It gives customers the option to get behind the wheel of a vehicle that offers the practicality of an SUV with the driveability and handling of a traditional high-performance car.
The new CUPRA Ateca comes with a suite of standard equipment including Alcantara Sport Seats, 19'-inch CUPRA alloy wheels, Adaptive Chassis Control (DCC) suspension and an enhanced steering system to improve feel.
The beating heart is a 2.0-litre TSI 300PS petrol engine linked to the quick-shifting seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission which, aided by the four-wheel drive '4Drive' system, propels CUPRA Ateca from standstill to 62mph (100km/h) in 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 153mph (247km/h).
