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.

SE Technology adds a few more features on top of what you get on SE models, including 18in alloys, a larger 9.2in infotainment system, sat-nav and voice control.

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.
