It only took a few days for a beefed up, imaginary Seat Ateca to pop up on our screens.
Besides adopting a new white color, which was also used on the body cladding, the hypothetical Ateca Cupra was rendered with a slightly lowered suspension, black-finished roof and side mirror caps and different design for the wheels that hide the red brake calipers with Cupra lettering.
In theory, a Cupra version could get a 2.0-liter turbo from the Leon Cupra 290. In its current form it produces 286hp (290PS) and 350Nm (258lb-ft) of torque, capable of propelling the hot hatch to 100km/h (62mph) in around 5.7 seconds, with a dual-clutch automatic, and up to a limited top speed of 250km/h (155mph).
If Seat ever considers such a model, then the flexible MQB platform, on which the Ateca is based, could produce the company’s first ever AWD Cupra.
