The first SUV of the brand in Martorell was officially presented in February this year under the name Seat Ateca. Seat has been slow to be introduced in the segment of the todocamino, although the Ateca has already proven to be a best seller with very good records of sales and orders in its first few months on the market. Better late than never, the saying goes.
Available with mechanical diesel and gasoline, front-wheel drive and integral, automatic transmissions and manuals, the Seat Ateca has come to complicate the things to models that are very settled in the segment C SUV such as the Nissan Qashqai or the Volkswagen Tiguan. Now coming to the market versions mechanical more economic, with outputs of 115 HP, they always have a great importance in terms of sales is concerned, as they tend to be very demanded by the customers.
The two variants mechanical that it now receives the Seat Ateca yield a power of 115 HP. On one hand we have the gasoline engine 1.0 TSI three-cylinder engine, and the 1.6 TDI diesel. In addition to sharing the same amount of power, both of which are available only in the finish Style and receive the last Ecomotive, for that to be more efficient and clean to the environment. Both the TSI as the TDI 115 HP associated with a change 6-speed manual and front-wheel drive, with the system of stop and automatic starter.
1.0 TSI stands out not for its power, but by a generous engine torque of 200 Nm that is available between 2,000 and 3,500 rpm; and what is better still, at only 1500 rpm now offers 175 Nm. In theory, this should allow a behavior is very elastic. Its mixed-use approved is 5,2 l/100 km.
The engine 1.6 TDI delivers a maximum torque of 250 Nm between 1,500 and 3.250 rpm. According to the approvals of the Seat Ateca 1.6 TDI 115 HP consume 4.3 l/100 km in the combined cycle, emitting 113 grams per kilometer of CO2 to the atmosphere.
If we talk about price, the 1.0 TSI 115 HP has a RRP of 23.930 € , to be exempt from the registration tax; and the 1.6 TDI is part of the 26.630 € , without having to pay either the registration tax. Both prices are without discounts. If we take a look at the configurator of the brand, the prices are more than 3,000 euros cheaper.
None of the two engines highlighted by his power, and maybe stay something “short” if usually we travel with the car packed and roads for two-way or mountain passes. However, if you usually use the Seat Ateca to move around the city or some travel without undue burden, these 115 HP will be enough. As you have seen, the price difference between the diesel and the gasoline is of almost 3000 euros, so you should ask yourself if you really would be cost-effective to buy the diesel.
