The SEAT Ateca is the sporty Spanish offering from the Volkswagen Group’s latest batch of hugely successful SUVs. Sharing many of its nuts and bolts with the upmarket Volkswagen Tiguan and the fiercely practical Skoda Kodiaq, the Ateca is not just arguably the best-looking, but also the least expensive of the three.
We’ll spare you the usual spiel about flair and Latin spirit – but it really is a very handsome machine. Heavily inspired by the Leon, the taut curves and sharp lines the brand is famous for translate surprisingly well into SUV form, and give it a sporty edge that’s still subtle enough not to offend anyone.
What will grab people’s attention more so however, is the price. Starting at just €25,120 – it undercuts the already keenly priced Renault Kadjar, Nissan Qashqai, and just about everything else out there at the moment.
