Today, SEAT held the world premiere of its eagerly-awaited first SUV, Ateca, at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new Ateca is a unique combination of distinctive design, dynamic driving fun, urban versatility and compelling utility. First-class connectivity, innovative assistance systems and highly efficient engines are among its technology highlights and make it one of the most innovative SUVs in the segment. Outstanding quality, precision production and very attractive value-for-money ensure it is a true SEAT. Throughout its development, surefooted handling has been at the forefront, to deliver a car which is agile and precise, so that every day and every mile in Ateca is that little bit more rewarding.
“The SEAT Ateca is perfect for an urban lifestyle. It possesses stunning design and dynamics, and boasts compelling quality and utility. But above all, the Ateca exudes unmistakable character,” says Luca de Meo, President of SEAT, S.A. “Our first SUV marks the start of a new era for SEAT. The Ateca is a clear development of the Leon DNA and will drive forward the success of the range. SEAT is a brand on the move.”
