Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

With the exception of the vast Skoda Octavia vRS, no conventional hot hatch is quite a match for the Cupra Ateca when it comes to ferrying around people and their accompanying paraphernalia.

Let’s start with the front seats, which are certainly easier to get into, and out of, than the Honda Civic Type R’s thanks to being higher off the ground. And once inside, anyone with even a mild tendency towards claustrophobia will appreciate the extra room above their head.

It’s a similar story in the back, because although leg room isn’t significantly greater than in some hot hatches, head room most definitely is. A couple of six-footers will fit quite comfortably, despite the Cupra not packing clever features like the sliding and reclining rear seats that you'll find available on pricier performance SUVs such as the Skoda Kodiaq vRS and Audi SQ5.
 
The boot is just as impressive as in regular  four-wheel-drive Atecas, and should comfortably hold enough luggage for a family of four on a week’s holiday. Incidentally, we managed to fit six carry-on suitcases below the parcel shelf .
