New SEAT Ateca 2020 facelift pricing and specification including the new CUPRA Ateca from £39,050

Pricing starts at £23,670 with the CUPRA model starting at £39,050. SE Technology, Xperience and Xperience Lux cheaper than outgoing models.

The order books for the New SEAT Ateca and CUPRA Ateca have today opened, with both models more highly specified than ever and at a lower price point than the outgoing models.

Customers can new purchase a new SEAT Ateca SE 1.0 TSI manual from £23,670 on the road, with the 300PS 2.0 TSI CUPRA Ateca available from £39,050.

Expected to be the most popular model, the 1.5-litre TSI 150PS SE Technology, costs less than the outgoing model, now £26,355, as well as benefitting from more technology as standard, including connected navigation and wireless charging for smart devices.

The introduction of the Xperience trim, replacing Xcellence, brings not only a more robust visual presence but also a lower cost comparatively versus the previous model.

Prices start from £27,750 for the Xperience trim, which comes packed with technology and comfort features.

“The Ateca started the SUV charge from SEAT and it has been transformative, not only increasing sales but also introducing new people to the brand that would previously have not chosen aSEAT. As the customer trend towards SUVs continues, we’ve refreshed and added more to Ateca, it’s now, pound-for-pound, one of the best value vehicles on the market. This is all backed up by high-quality materials and technology.”

Richard Harrison, Managing Director, SEAT UK

The SEAT Ateca gets a range of updated petrol (TSI) or diesel (TDI) powertrains, each designed to deliver the highest levels of performance and driveability while improving efficiency.

The frugal three-cyclinder 1.0 TSI unit produces 81kW/110PS of power, and is linked to a manual transmission. The engine uses a Miller-cycle combustion process and variable geometry turbocharger to take efficiency to the next level.

With a power output of 110kW/150PS, the larger capacity four-cylinder 1.5 TSI is available with both manual and DSG dual-clutch transmissions, and achieves reduced fuel consumption and greater efficiency by integrating Active Cylinder Management technology, which adapts the engine to work with only two cylinders in certain driving conditions.

The most powerful petrol option is a 140kW/190PS 2.0 TSI unit, linked to a DSG dual-clutch transmission and 4Drive all-wheel drive system to offer a dynamic on-road and off-road driving experience. The 2.0 TSI unit is also available exclusively in the CUPRA Ateca with a 300PS power output.

Diesel remains part of the Ateca powertrain line-up, with 2.0 TDI engines improving driving performance while reducing emissions versus the outgoing 1.6 TDI unit.

The line-up is available as a 115PS output with six-speed manual, as well as a 150PS output available as a manual or DSG dual-clutch transmission. All TDI units introduce a twin dosing Selective Catalytic Reductor (SCR) system that includes dual AdBlue injection to significantly reduce NOx emissions compared to previous generation diesel engines. The result is a range of diesel engines that meet the strict requirement of Euro6d emissions standards.

Can anyone find the pdf brochure with UK prices? I cant find it on the seat website at all. I've emailed my dealer to send it over but still waiting on them getting back to me.

Thanks for that. Having looked through the pdf I find it incredible that the FR model doesnt get the digital cockpit, you need to get the Fr Sport for it... :cautious:

Probably have to have the Cupra top spec to get the lot. It's only a Seat UK thing, Germany all the goodies are there. Think it's a consequence of Brexit, currency shift and how Brits fund their cars. Even if paying cash you get to buy one designed for fleet PCP transactions where the vehicle belongs to Seat finance. Off the peg although the factory can make them to order. Other countries they do. One advantage is you can get a car quickly if they happen to have them built. The Seat stores, ones at either end of the M25 can drop their hands on vehicles that your average dealer can't. Miffs them.

Also peeving is the news on VCDS that its being heavily controlled on VAG cars, the 2020 ones and on. So you can't assume you can turn stuff on now which is latent. Least traffic sign recognition is coming back into vogue now so that's on some of the new Leons and Atecas. ODIS is the only way to program Ateca 2020 / Leon 4s. You can still do diagnostics with VCDS but VAG have been busy slamming the door shut on programming for the user. Google sfd protection against the tool of your choice to find out more.

Anyhow I see the Cupra had the 3D navigation display, build code ZN2 with SD mentioned, basically reproducing what UK Cupra's had with the top of the range unit but in mib3 form now. That's means you got SD slot(s) for music. The standard unit ZN1 on non Cupra Ateca's will be like the one on Leon 4s. Distinct lack of anything showing in the glove box since they are also SSD based now but don't have an SD card reader from what I can see, unless anyone finds it (dealer hadnt'). Means that USB-C may get a bit busy on the standard Ateca if you play your music that way what with any charging duties as well. Cupra's get the best spec. Both use Here Maps cartography same download. Standard was always ropey in how it was executed on roundabout turns. Whether the two units use the same software now on that bit, unknown, you would think so.

Went to my local dealer today to price up PCP on the new Ateca Fr Sport, 1.5 150bhp DSG. The lowest they could get to is £360 a month which is way more than I am willing to pay. I want to be paying max £300 a month, currently I only pay £250 for my leon MK3. It seems that SEAT are no longer the 'budget' brand of the VAG group as I've had a price of £310 a month for a brand new Audi Q3 S-Line with the same engine. Today has been very dissappoint as I was so looking forward to getting the new Ateca but its not worth the extra £110 a month to me thats for sure.

PCP is usually more expensive than leasing, is that an option for you?

If it was a like for like comparison you would have to put the exchange rate shift in. I reckon that will have upped prices to keep the same profit margins. Probably dropped profit margins to keep market share. The segmentation into product range you would think would reduce costs making the same, than user choice. Forces us who want the extras to have the bling of the Cupra :rolleyes:.

It's also worth shopping around, some dealers offer better deals, worth trying our sponsors at Letchworth of course @Karla

Unfortunately I dont want to consider leasing. I am more than happy at this point to keep my MK3 leon. I have tried another local dealer who said it would be £424 a month which totally crazy imo. I'll give Letchworth a message however, I feel SEAT have outpriced themsleves. These prices are on par with a VW tiguan or Audi Q3 so why get a SEAT the 'budget brand'?

But are those new make over models ?. This is where Seat UK central team told me in 2016 don't expect discounts so soon... 9-12 months as I recall. Probably got that going on as well, paying the privilege of a new model and the Pound / Euro shift in what you are paying at the minute.

My local dealer has let me know they expect the new Ateca in their showroom in three weeks time! I'm hoping to book a test drive even though the price isnt right just now.

The Ateca 2020 User guide is on the net. Downloaded that and the Leon one. They integrate the infotainment manual into the main manual. Consequence a little thin on information on the exact key strokes. Obtained a Golf 8 one for inspection will basically be the same :).

The VW one for connected cars so this is what Seat is trying to achieve... we'll see:
