SEAT is set to showcase the brand new Ateca SUV at the Fleet Show, taking place at the iconic Silverstone Grand Prix circuit on May 11 2016. The Ateca is set to push the appeal of the brand even further, with what is clearly a handsome offering that is bound to appeal to a large audience.
Three trim levels will be offered in the UK: S, SE – expected to be the best-selling trim – and XCELLENCE. In addition, a ‘First Edition’ version will be offered, with more details to be announced later this spring.
Engine line-up covers two petrol and three diesel powertrains, spanning 113bhp to 187bhp with a choice of either six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG-auto transmissions. Providing four-wheel-drive capability, SEAT’s 4Drive powertrain is available on both 2.0 TDI diesel engines. Emissions and MPG figures are expected to be among the best in class when they are confirmed.
From launch, there will be 113bhp three-cylinder 1.0 TSI and 1.6 TDI engines available on S and SE models, while a 148bhp 1.4 EcoTSI and 2.0 TDI will be available across SE and XCELLENCE trims. Finally the 187bhp 2.0 TDI will be exclusively available on the range-topping XCELLENCE, and comes with DSG and 4Drive.
On the road pricing starts at £17,990 and rises to £29,990 for top of the range models. For more details of the Fleet World Fleet Show 2016, please visit http://www.thefleetshow.co.uk.
