Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

At first that may seem faintly ridiculous, but when you look at the Venn diagram of price, proportions and performance, the Ateca lives in a little world of its own. To get vaguely comparable speed and power from any other medium-sized SUV, you’re looking at spending around £50k+ on a Porsche Macan S or an Audi SQ5.
But although it may be marooned in its own micro-sector, that doesn’t mean it has a free pass. A £40,000-ish Seat – sorry, Cupra – has a lot to prove, starting with how it drives

Pros
Hot hatch performance with SUV styling and practicality

Cons
£40k for a Seat with somewhat unconvincing branding

By: 
topgear.com

The Cupra Ateca SUV is a brilliant family car that’s fast and great to drive, but you’ll have to accept its gloomy interior and boy racer exterior complete with tuner-esque branding.

Pros
Surprisingly nimble
Fizzing performance
Still practical

Cons
Boy racer looks
Dark, gloomy interior
A VW Golf R costs less

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Pros
Much faster than you'd expect
Decent battery range
Roomy and comfortable

Cons
Touchscreen could be easier to use
Not cheap to buy
Doesn't handle as well as it goes

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Pros
Design,
overall build quality,
performance,
handling and ride

Cons
Expensive for a ‘small’ SUV,
some of the interior certainly doesn't match the price

By: 
topgear.com

PROS
Trendy design,
powerful electric powertrain,
thoughtful interior storage solutions.

CONS
Some rivals offer more driving range,
heavy and feels like it in corners,
high starting price.
