EQUIPMENT AND HANDLING FOR THE CUPRA ATECA
Behind the wheel, the Cupra Ateca car lease delivers a stable and composed ride with great handling on winding country roads. This is partly down to the SUV being 10mm lower than the standard Ateca.
It's also a smart motorway cruiser with lots of performance in the higher rev range.
For those who may not know, the Cupra marque is the sporty spin-off from SEAT but is still in its infancy, and here they have created a very fast SUV to enjoy.
There are five driving modes to choose from and the throttle and suspension are nicely tuned to suit the driver's own style or circumstances.
However, the 'Cupra' driving mode does impress with a crisp throttle, sharper steering and stiffer suspension dampers delivering a real sports car performance despite the Ateca's size.
Along with the transmission, handling is boosted with a strong grip and the four-wheel drive system, called 4Drive, offers confidence on a range of surfaces, including mud and snow.
The cabin is a revamp of the one found in the SEAT Ateca sibling with an up-to-date dashboard and premium materials being used. As usual, Cupra has added its own logos and contrasting stitching to make this environment stand out.
There's a lot of standard equipment onboard too, including a configurable digital instrument display and an eight-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system that is smartphone compatible.
The Cupra Ateca car lease also features 19-inch alloy wheels, a quad exhaust system and a stylish body kit. The front seats cosset the driver and passenger well, and there are equipment packs to choose from to add to the kit, depending on what the driver wants.
For example, with the Design Pack, drivers get to enjoy copper-coloured alloy wheels and 18-inch Brembo brakes. As with the sibling, there's plenty of space in the cabin and even tall adults sitting in the rear seats will have enough room.
This is also a safe SUV with a five-star rating from Euro NCAP for crash testing.
Essentially, the Cupra Ateca is an impressive SUV that delivers hot hatch performance for those who want a car lease that is a rewarding family car to enjoy - but with a very strong fun element when needed. For the money, the Ateca is currently in a class of one.
