Finally, the curtain disappeared and we could see the first SUV of the brand with headquarters in Martorell, the Seat Ateca. Levábamos many months waiting, making our speculating how it would be, that news would cease, and, above all, if you would be able to compete in this market todocamino that does not leave puppet head, but if you know to give with the key, you can get in on the action. And the wait has been worth it, the Ateca sports a fresh look and who can satisfy all. Now, what if you take a step more? What if they dared to launch a Seat Ateca Cupra? We are going to analyze the information around this idea.
As you know, the current range Cupra comprises the Ibiza Cupra and the León Cupra, the latter with almost 300 horsepower. Both are compact vehicles, sports, with better components that the versions of the series, and aimed at an audience looking for a sporty side in your car with that power to have fun behind the wheel. Now I offer the following question, do you think that there may be customers in the Seat Ateca looking for that sporty side?
The president of Seat, Luca de Meo, has declared Auto Express that are studying this version though, as the same says, you should go little by little. Of course the first thing is to study the reception of the model in the market to then provide a variant of these features. Although, this alternative would give a brand image, although it to become a reality, the numbers must go, and in my opinion, it is unlikely that you can get to the market a Seat Ateca Cupra.
Although dreaming is free, and if you finally landed a variant Cupra of the Ateca could equip a motor 2.0-liter TDI that we see in the Tiguan, its first cousin, with close to 240 horsepower. With a mechanic similar features the Seat Ateca Cupra can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in about seven seconds, a figure not negligible for the segment in which we move.
