Je Design has given the Cupra Ateca a healthy power boost and a visual makeover that makes it a bit more powerful than G-Power’s proposal.
The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that powers the sporty compact SUV now boasts 360 PS (355 hp / 265 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque on 98 octane fuel.
The 60 PS (59 hp / 44 kW) and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) of torque increase has dropped the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint time by 0.4 seconds, to 4.8. Top speed has also gone up from 247 km/h to 259 km/h (153-161 mph).
In addition to the ECU remap, the tuner has equipped the Cupra Ateca with wheel arch extensions and bumper protections in gloss black or matte silver.
The vehicle rides 30 mm closer to the ground thanks to the lowering springs, and the whole setup ensures that wheels up to 10×20-inch in size, shod in 275/30 tires, fit just nicely. Je Design has a couple of 19- and 20-inch rims available for the sporty Ateca, which can be had with a black silk matte or polished face.
Getting the tuner’s bundle of aftermarket parts requires spending €7,103 (equal to $8,023), or €9,093 ($10,280) with the ECU remap and resulting power boost. Prices include tax but not fitting and painting, so the whole upgrade will probably end up surpassing the €10K mark.
