SEAT is refreshing its successful Ateca with the introduction of the 2020 version. The revamped vehicle will build on its compact SUV attributes, adding a refreshed and more emotional appearance both inside and outside, a fully connected user experience, improved levels of safety and comfort and increased efficiency.

When it was first launched, the SEAT Ateca brought a new dimension to the compact SUV market; it was the perfect match for urban life, offering a spacious, practical and versatile SUV with a unique style. And its clear character, emotional design and dynamic personality has been added into the new version.

“The Ateca has become one of the brands’ more successful vehicles, selling more than 300,000 units since its introduction in 2016. The new SEAT Ateca 2020 is an evolution of the original product and it aims at continuing with its success by consolidating our position in one of the most important market segments,” said Carsten Isensee, SEAT President and Vice-president for Finance and IT.

The SEAT Ateca is designed and developed in Barcelona, and produced in Kvasiny (Czech Republic), adding additional impetus to the brand’s line-up of SUVs – a vehicle segment that is intrinsically important to SEAT’s continued success.

Since its introduction in 2016, more than 300,000 SEAT Ateca have been sold, a huge accomplishment for the compact SUV.
