Ateca gets sport­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

SEAT’S Ateca com­pact SUV has proved a big hit since its launch and the Span­ish car maker is adding a sporty FR ver­sion to the range this sum­mer.

It will make its de­but at the Barcelona In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show later this month and will join the new Leon and Ibiza and, later this year, the new Arona cross­over.

The FR trim level Ateca will come with a range of EU6 petrol and diesel en­gines, rang­ing in power from 150bhp to 190bhp, in­clud­ing a new 2.0 TSI 190bhp unit with a range of man­ual and DSG-auto trans­mis­sion gear­boxes.

Four-wheel-drive will be avail­able on both 2.0 TDI en­gines and the line up will also fea­ture the new 2.0 TSI model with dynamic chas­sis con­trol with pro­gres­sive steer­ing to en­hance han­dling.
