Review

The Seat Ateca isn’t just great to drive and attractive to look at, it’s also impressively spacious, well equipped and competitively priced. Put simply, if you’re looking for a family SUV that’s also capable of putting a smile on your face, the Ateca needs to be very high on your shopping list. The Skoda Karoq isn't as specialised when it comes to handling agility but it is a slightly better all-round package.

get the best price

Entry-level SE trim is such great value for money when you consider how much it offers that it's our pick of the range. It includes cruise control, dual-zone climate control, metallic paint, 17in alloy wheels, keyless entry, wireless phone charging, power-folding door mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, LED headlights, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, four USB-C sockets and an 8.3in touchscreen infotainment system.

This entry-level 109bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine delivers adequate performance without you having to rev the engine hard; it’s ideal if you spend most of your time in town, but once you’re on the motorway, keeping up with faster traffic requires liberal use of your right foot and 0-62mph takes 11.4sec.
