SEAT Ateca AWD Xcellence Review
Free Range Mid-Range

Sharp creases in its sheet metal, and an up-swept “D” pillar, which plays well into the downward tapering roofline, gives the car a sense of sportiness

SEAT’s mid-range offering, the Ateca is a sharply styled family SUV with some off-roading cred. Benefitting from its parent Volkswagen Group modular transverse platform known as the MQB, the Spanish company’s SUV combines an easy to manage footprint for city driving, edgy styling and features a luxuriously appointed interior.

But with a market saturated with so many brands vying for a share in the same market segment, including some very similar-in-design group cars like the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Skoda Karoq; the latter we strongly believe will make an appearance quite soon, how does the Ateca stack up?

SEAT’s design language is communicated through elements like its angular LED head (standard on Xcellence and FR trims) and tail lamps. Sharp creases in its sheet metal, and an up-swept “D” pillar, which plays well into the downward tapering roofline, gives the car a sense of sportiness. In keeping with its rugged intentions, the Ateca features protective plastic black plastic trim around the base of the car, and adding to its faux tough appeal, equally faux frosted moulded scruff guards are moulded into the front and rear.

Our test car was the middle spec Xcellence trim, sits between the more basic “Style” model, and the range-topping FR version. We do feel that the latter comes across as a little on the pricy side.
