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

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.

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.
