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.

Splashing out on an FR Sport model brings 19in alloy wheels, a digital instrument cluster, heated front seats, an electrically operated driver's seat and leather trim.

This is the quickest engine in the range. It has 187bhp, will hit 0-62mph in 7.1sec and comes as standard with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. It's pricey though.
