The Seat Ateca. What’s that, then? It’s Seat’s alternative to the Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage, and multitudinous other diddy SUVs. Seat’s a bit late to the party, really: the Qashqai launched in 2007 and a heck of a lot of rivals have followed since. Including several from elsewhere in the VW empire. Even Bentley has beaten Seat to building an SUV, albeit one much further up the food chain… The Ateca arrives as perhaps the most important car in the Spanish company’s history. Prices start at a whisker under £18,000, which is only a few hundred quid more than you’ll pay for a basic Leon. Aggressive pricing. Sounds important. Does it live up to its billing?
