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.

FR trim adds some extra features and a sportier look inside and out, with privacy glass, body-colour wheel arches, ambient lighting, suede seat trim, auto lights and wipers and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

The best choice for most buyers. Outright acceleration is more than brisk enough (0-62mph takes 9.3sec), but it's the ease with which you can build speed from low revs in any given gear that really impresses. Fuel economy is decent, too, with up to 45mpg average officially possible.
