Cupra Ateca Priced From £35,900 In The UK, Order Books Now Open

Seat’s recently launched performance brand has announced UK pricing and specification details of its first model, the Cupra Ateca.

The new Cupra Ateca is priced from £35,900, and that includes metallic paint and the new Cupra Care service and maintenance package as standard.

The latter includes the first three scheduled services, a brake fluid change, the car’s first MOT, European roadside assistance cover and maintenance jobs such as brake repairs, wiper blades, air-con service and key fob battery replacements. The pack also includes repairs to areas like the engine, transmission, suspension, electrics and cooling.

Standard specification includes a leather steering wheel with copper stitching, black Alcantara seats and matching door trim, exclusive 19-inch diamond cut alloys and plenty of gloss black detailing, both inside and out. Other standard features include keyless entry and start system, wireless charging, an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, DCC electronically controlled suspension and park assist.

Customers will be offered the choice between six body colors: Energy Blue, Velvet Red, Brilliant Silver, Rodium Grey, Magic Black and Nevada White.

Options will include a Comfort&Sound Pack that features a Beats Audio system, a range of driver assistance systems and a Design Pack that adds 20-inch alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, a panoramic roof and a tow bar.

Seat says that the Cupra Ateca offers “the highest performance of any SUV available outside of premium manufacturers”. Power comes from a turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI engine that produces 296hp (300PS) and 295lb-ft (400Nm) of peak torque and is mated to a newly developed seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, said to offer “faster, smoother and more precise changes”, and all-wheel drive. The new Cupra Ateca is capable of a 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.4) while top speed is 152mph (245km/h). First deliveries are expected early next year.

    What a terrible logo to be staring at in the steering wheel whilst in the driver’s seat. They might as well have left the steering wheel blank.
