The Seat Ateca is great to drive and its interior is more user-friendly than even some newer rivals. Meanwhile, it’s well equipped, offers plenty of space and competitively priced, meaning you’re looking at a practical SUV capable of putting a smile on your face that won’t cost a fortune. The Skoda Karoq isn't as specialised when it comes to handling agility but it is a slightly better all-round package in terms of comfort and versatility. Our pick of the Ateca range is the 1.5 TSI 150 in SE trim.

Range-topping Xperience Lux trim adds 19in alloy wheels, a digital instrument cluster, sport seats with leather upholstery, an electric tailgate, a 360-degree parking camera and blind-spot monitoring. That's on top of what Xperience trim comes with.

This is the most powerful engine in the Ateca range, with a four-cylinder motor producing 148bhp. It trims the 0-62mph time down to 9.0sec and top speed rises to 126mph.
