SEAT Details UK Range Of The New Ateca SUV

With their first crossover model around the corner, Seat UK announced pricing and range details for the new Ateca.

The Nissan Qashqai-rivaling Seat will be offered initially in four trim levels, including a special ‘First Edition’, details of which will be announced on a later date.

Customers will be able to choose between five engines, including a three-pot turbocharged 115PS 1.0-litre TSI, a 150PS 1.4-litre TSI, a 115PS 1.6-litre TDI and a 2.0-litre TDI with 150PS and 190PS. The latter will be offered only in 4WD guise with a double-clutch DSG transmission.

A choice of eleven paint colors will be available, six of which to be offered for the first time in a Seat. Every Ateca will come equipped as standard with safety features like Front Assist with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Protection, plus Tiredness Recognition.

The entry-level Seat Ateca will start at £17,990, over £500 cheaper than the Nissan Qashqai and around £2,000 less than the Ford Kuga, revealing the aggressive strategy the company is going to follow. The range-topping 190PS diesel version will cost £29,990.

UK orders begin in May 3rd with the first cars set to arrive in the UK on September.
