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

The 2018 Acura ILX ranked #20 in Luxury Small Cars. Currently the Acura ILX has a score of 7.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 54 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Great fuel economy
Less expensive than class rivals

Cons
Few standard features
Dull handling

By:

The 2018 Acura ILX is an acceptable entry-level luxury car, but a loaded-up mainstream model like the Honda Civic delivers more features and refinements for less money.

Pros
Rev-happy engine
Excellent transmission
Good safety features
Luxury-level cachet

Cons
Based on the old Honda Civic
Interior space compromised
Not exactly upscale interior
Bland looks

By:

Folding backseat
Available safety systems

Cons
Tight headroom front and rear
Lots of road and engine noise
