Equipment and handling
The Seat Cupra Ateca was the first model launched by the carmaker under its Cupra brand. The idea was to offer a sporty and practical combination within a sophisticated design and high levels of performance – and do it better than any other premium SUV. And they've managed to do it. The Cupra Ateca is an easy car to drive with excellent levels of performance from a standing start - it will certainly out-sprint most 'hot hatches' when necessary. It also looks the part with glossy black exterior details, diamond cut alloy wheels as well as the Cupra logo. The cabin has also been restyled with comfortable black Alcantara sports seats featuring the Cupra logo and a leather sports steering wheel. The Cupra Ateca is based on the excellent standard version Seat Ateca so the handling is assured and the suspension, even though it has been lowered for the Cupra offering, delivers even stronger grip. There's a long list of standard kit including an 8-inch touchscreen system, keyless entry and start as well as park assist. Seat also offers dynamic chassis control as a standard feature so drivers can alter the set-up to suit conditions and the options include a better sound system and Alcantara bucket seats. Essentially, the Seat Cupra Ateca is a well-made car designed for a specific purpose and it excels at what it does; it's also a practical and comfortable SUV that delivers startling performance to help make it a really enjoyable and fun to drive car.
