Cupra Ateca Gains New Limited Edition With Carbon Fiber Bits, New Wheels And More

Seat’s high-performance Cupra brand is introducing a new limited edition of the Ateca, featuring a range of special add-ons aimed at making it more enticing.

Limited to just 1,999 examples, the new Cupra Ateca Special Edition gets a set of new 20-inch copper-finish alloy wheels, as well as unique copper-thread carbon-fiber details that include the roof spoiler, mirror covers and the interior mouldings that frame the dashboard and climate controls. Even the key is housed in a carbon-fiber cover.

The model’s color palette includes this exclusive Graphene Grey in addition to Energy Blue and Rodium Grey. The interior features a set of Petrol Blue Alcantara seats, a color that continues through to the rear seats and door panels, making the new Cupra Ateca Limited Edition really stand out from the standard version.

Changes under the bonnet are minimal, with the Cupra Ateca Limited Edition still powered by a turbocharged 2,0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 296 HP (300 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is the only option, sending power to all four wheels. Cupra claims a 0-62 mph (100km/h) time of 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 153 mph (247 km/h).

The new Cupra Ateca Limited Edition also comes fitted with a progressive steering system that according to the company is “designed to offer the perfect balance between directness and feedback”. The standard model’s exhaust has been replaced by a titanium Akrapovic system that saves 7 kg (15.4 lbs) and provides a “highly emotive” note.

“The Cupra Ateca Limited Edition is a vehicle that will surprise car enthusiasts and shows our passion for developing and designing products that exude the essence of the brand,” said Cupra CEO Wayne Griffiths. “With the Limited Edition we’ve turned up the volume on the visual styling and driving sound.”

Prospective customers are invited to register their interest via the company’s first online reservation platform, which will serve as the go-to solution for those wishing to reserve their vehicle for up to six weeks before sales are scheduled to begin.
