Je Design Bumps Cupra Ateca To 355 HP For The Price Of A Supermini

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.

    This is how it should have come from the factory from the start. The black wheels and fender flares add a little something…something I think.

    I generally gain approximately $6,000-$8,000 monthly online. It’s enough to easily replace my old jobs salary, specially considering I just work about 20 hr per week from home.I lost my job after doing work for the same company for several years, I needed trusted source of income, I was not interested in the “get rich quick” home programs you can see all over the net. Those are all pyramid schemes or stuff in which you have to sell to your friends and family members. I actually wanted a reliable method to earn a living for me and my family. The most interesting part of working over the internet is that I am always home with the kids, I save lots of money. Honestly,it is easier than you would think, all you need to do is fill out a simple form to receive front line access to the Home Profit System . You don’t need to be a computer whiz, but you should be aware how to use the internet. If you can fill up forms and surf sites, you can do it quite easily, You don’t need to sell anything at all and no-one has to purchase anything. It’s as easy as being on Youtube.Here’s the best way to get started–> SRT.LT/Q0D2nE

    Why dont American manufacturers understand this concept of building SUV’s that look sporty with the bulging fenders and lower stances like this? They continue with this boring mom mobiles that men wouldn’t be caught alive in! They’re all just trash!
