The Seat Ateca broke new ground for Seat, because the Spanish brand had previously built as many SUVs as it had spaceships. But while Seat was more than fashionably late to the party, it turned up with an absolute cracker.

Underneath the sharply styled bodywork are essentially the same mechanicals that sit beneath the Skoda Karoq and the more expensive Volkswagen Tiguan. True, the Ateca misses out on some of those cars' practical features, such as reclining and sliding rear seats, but it still has a large boot and masses of rear-seat space.

Other rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai offer lower CO2 emissions, but the Ateca is more than respectable on this front. It compares favourably with the Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson, for example, while offering strong performance from a wide range of petrol and diesel engines.

Read on over the next few pages for everything you need to know about the Ateca, including which trim level and engine to choose. And if you decide it's the car for you, be sure to check out our latest Ateca deals.
