The Cupra Ateca gives you huge performance and impressive practicality for a reasonable price, but the Ford Puma ST will deliver even bigger thrills for significantly less money. And, if you’re after a sports SUV with an upmarket interior and a cosseting ride, then we’d take a Cupra Formentor.

The 2.0-litre turbo engine is essentially the same as you’ll find in Volkswagen's flagship Golf R hot hatch, so there’s more than enough firepower to get your blood pumping – 296bhp to be exact. In our tests it slingshot the Cupra Ateca from 0-60mph in just 4.7sec, while the top speed is 152mph 153mph – numbers which are comparable to the BMW X2 M35i, Volkswagen T-Roc R and Cupra Formentor.
