What's all this about?

SEAT is hoping to tempt compact SUV buyers with the prices of its new Ateca, which start at 17,990. The order book opens on 3rd May with cars arriving in showrooms this September. Four trim levels will be available at launch including a limited-run 'First Edition'.

What do you get for the money?

The range starts with the 'S' model, which comes with air conditioning, five-inch touch screen and a leather steering wheel. On the outside there are 16-inch alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights.

SEAT expects the SE (starting at 19,590) to be the biggest seller in the UK. This can be identified by its 17-inch alloys, LED tail lights and black roof rails. Equipment upgrades include dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors and power folding, heated door mirrors.

Details of the First Edition will be revealed in May; for now the flagship trim is 'XCELLENCE', which starts at 23,905. Wheel size is up to 18 inches while the roof rails and window surrounds are finished in chrome. The interior features a number of premium touches including lights in the door mirrors that project the model name on the ground, colour LED interior ambient lighting and a wireless phone charger that also boosts the in-car phone signal.

What's under the bonnet?

Two petrol and three diesel motors are available in the Ateca; S and SE-level cars get the three-cylinder, 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine with 115hp and CO2 emissions of 123g/km. The S is also available with a 1.6-litre TDI with 115hp that returns 65.7mpg and 112g/km. Customers looking for more power can pick either a petrol or diesel unit with 150hp; the petrol is a 1.4-litre 'EcoTSI' with active cylinder shut down; the diesel is a 2.0-litre that is also available with 190hp in the range-topping XCELLENCE.
