ABT’s 345 HP Cupra Ateca Put To The Test – How Quick Is It?

With its MQB underpinnings, tuned chassis, sporty body kit and punchy engine, the stock Cupra Ateca is already an attractive proposition straight out of the box. This one, however, promises even more.

Having been tuned by ABT, its 2.0-liter four-pot now produces 350 PS (345 hp / 257 kW) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) of torque. The 50 PS (49 hp / 37 kW) and 40 Nm (30 lb-ft) increase over the stock Cupra Ateca has cut its 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration time by 0.2 seconds and increased its top speed by 8 km/h (5 mph), to 5.0 seconds and 255 km/h (158 mph), respectively.

Also Watch: Cupra Ateca Is Very Fast And Well-Rounded, But It Lacks Character

ABT’s offering also includes a set of springs that lower ride height. Elsewhere, the seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system have remained untouched. For an increased visual effect, the tuner can equip the sporty SUV with a set of 20-inch alloy wheels which, somehow, manage to not look oversized, but rather stylish for what is essentially an urban vehicle.

You may be wondering how these aftermarket parts and extra muscle have affected the Ateca’s real-world performance, and the answer comes from AutomannTV, which subjected it to an acceleration test. With the Launch Control engaged, the SUV turned out to be quicker than advertised. By how much? Well, you’ll have to watch the video attached right below to find out the answer.

    I actually gain approximately $6,000-$8,000 every month through the internet. It is more than enough to comfortably substitute my last jobs income, especially considering I only just work approximately 20 hrs a week at home.I got rid of my job after doing work for the same corporation for a long time, I required very reliable earnings. I was not interested in packages that miguide you to make you millionnare within few days as you can see all over the net. Those all of them are sort of ponzi network marketing plans wherein you need to first create leads after which sell something to friends and family members or anyone to make sure they will be in your team. The greatest benefit of working on the internet is that I am always home with the little ones and also enjoy lots of free time with my family members in various beautiful beaches of the world. Honestly,it is easier than you would think, all you need to do is fill out a simple form to obtain front line access to the Home Profit System. The guidelines are really easy, you don’t have to be a computer whiz, but you must understand how to use the internet. It’s as simple as being on Facebook.
