Keenly priced from £17,990, SEAT's first SUV undercuts several key rivals, including the Nissan Qashqai by over £500, as well as the Ford Kuga by around £2,000*. Kicking things off, the entry-level S has all the essential kit which a growing family or young-at-heart couple might need. On the inside, the classy interior includes air conditioning, Media System Touch five-inch touchscreen with USB and SD connectivity, leather steering wheel and gearknob, plus split-folding rear seats with reclining function. On the outside, Ateca's stylish lines are complemented by 16-inch 'Design' alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights.

Moving up to the expected UK best-selling trim level, SE, brings in an array of comfort, convenience and style features, including dual-zone climate control, cruise control, electrically adjustable, heated and folding door mirrors and rear parking sensors. As buyers have come to expect from the Spanish marque, technology touches also abound. Among them is Full Link (SEAT's seamless three-in-one connectivity solution for smartphones and tablets), together with an upgraded infotainment in the form of Media System Plus with eight-inch colour touchscreen, USB/Aux-in port, SD card slot, eight speakers, voice control and Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free system. Externally, the mid-trim level looks sharp with 17-inch 'Dynamic' alloy wheels, LED taillights and black roof rails.

Rounding off the initial UK line-up, at least until the 'First Edition' version is confirmed in May, is XCELLENCE. The new flagship trim ushers in a plethora of enticing premium features, including four new innovations for SEAT. The first is a Connectivity Hub with Wireless Phone Charger which also boosts in-car phone signal, as well as multi-colour interior ambient lighting with LED interior illumination and a choice of eight colours. Penultimately, comes an 'Ateca' welcome light silhouette which is projected onto the ground from the bottom of the door mirrors, and finally, SEAT Drive Profile with Driving Experience selector. This latest evolution of the brand's tried and tested technology allows the driver to adjust Ateca's set-up (steering, throttle response and gear change speeds - the latter on DSG-equipped versions) according to road and weather conditions or personal preferences, including Off-road and Snow modes on four-wheel-drive versions.

The kit count continues to climb with Convenience Pack (auto lights and wipers, auto-dimming rear view mirror and automatic coming and leaving home lights function), KESSY (Keyless Enter & Go) and Navigation system (3D map display, high resolution display, two SD card slots, DAB digital radio). Also among its features are black leather upholstery, rear view camera and Winter Pack (incorporating heated front seats and headlight washer system).

Unsurprisingly, the halo version also looks the part, boasting 18-inch 'Performance' alloy wheels, chrome roof rails and window surrounds, as well as chrome double exhaust pipes and aluminium roof rails. Full LED headlights and dark tinted rear windows complete the premium look.

An array of safety aids and systems come as standard on every Ateca, including new Front Assist with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Protection, plus Tiredness Recognition. Also featuring across the range are ASR traction control, ESC, electronic differential lock (XDS), seven airbags, Hill Hold Control, and last, but by no means least, tyre pressure monitor.

Ateca - comfort, convenience, style and technology options aplenty
Every Ateca comes with an enviable list of standard equipment, but, for those seeking even more creature comforts, there are plenty of options. Literally. Some of the most noteworthy are its technology highlights, several of which are debuting on SEAT's latest model. The innovative electric tailgate with Virtual Pedal, for both opening and closing, is available from £415, with Top View Camera, offering a 360-degree view to assist with parking and manoeuvring at £470. Lane Assist, costs £470 as part of a Driving Assistance Pack with High Beam Assist, while Blind Spot Detection, complete with new Rear Cross Traffic Alert, is also available as part of a pack, from £620.

Several convenience features are also likely to catch the eye, including a double boot floor for £115, Park Assist (self parking functionality) for £325, and again, a first for SEAT, a heated windscreen from £155.

For added style and cachet, buyers will probably tick the options box alongside electric panoramic sunroof for £935 and 19-inch 'Exclusive' machined alloy wheels on XCELLENCE which come in at £670. Several of the most popular items have also been grouped into seven option packs. All prices quoted are inclusive of VAT.
