SEAT Ateca specs

The First Edition is based on the Ateca SE but gains a heap of extra goodies to help it look more fancy on the outside and feel more plush on the inside.

The most obvious upgrades to the exterior compared to the SE are the new 18-inch alloy wheels, finished in two-tone silver/grey. The rear windows are tinted, while the roof rails and window surrounds are painted black. Three body colours are available to choose from – Nevada White, Rodium Grey and Samoa Orange.

Inside, the cabin gains an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system equipped with satellite navigation. Parking is made easier courtesy of both rear parking sensors and a reversing camera, and the boot lid is electrically operated via a wave of a foot beneath the rear bumper. A keyless entry and go system rounds off the upgrades.

SEAT Ateca engines

Both petrol and diesel power are offered for the Ateca First Edition. The petrol option comes in the shape of a 1.0-litre turbocharged unit, while the diesel is a 65.7mpg-rated 1.6-litre. Both engines produce 113 hp.

SEAT Ateca price

The First Edition will cost £21,995 for 1.0-litre petrol models and £24,305 for 1.6-litre diesel – numbers that represent a £1,100 saving over a regular SE model equipped to the same level. The regular Ateca range costs from £17,990.
