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

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 113bhp 2.0-litre diesel has low-down shove but not as much ultimate pace (0-62mph takes 10.9sec) as the better 2.0 TDI 150. It's no more efficient, either, with a slightly lower average fuel economy (57.9mpg).
