The upcoming 2021 Seat Ateca is a practical family SUV. It is a fun-to-drive model without any doubts. Of course, Spanish crossover is far from luxurious so bumpy roads are quite a problem for this little vehicle. However, the city ride is quite comfortable and quiet. The Ateca model has been recently spied and it showed to the people its new design.
After years of carryovers, Seat will finally deliver more significant upgrades. Even the interior will benefit from the latest changes. Most importantly, spy shots are showing changes on the exhausts so the all-new drivetrain is more than likely. New 2021 Ateca will go on sale later this year as a model for 2021.
2021 Ateca Spy Shots
The 2021 Seat Ateca will mark the fifth year of its presence on the market. This time, you should expect more drastic upgrades on this crossover. Newest spy shots are the proof we needed so all of the previous rumors became true. The prototype has been spied with a good amount of camouflage. However, most of the Ateca’s novelties were visible at first look.
That includes a redesigned front fascia. The front part now comes with a radiator grille that wears a new pattern. As for the headlights, units are reshaped and will also get new internal graphics. Even the lower section of the front bumper will suffer a few modifications. The rear part of the vehicle hosts similar updates as the front one. Overall, the latest changes will boost Ateca’s attractiveness.
Interior details are not available yet. However, new 2021 Seat Ateca should get a couple of upgrades on the inside as well. This crossover will most likely arrive with a new and larger display. It is a must for a Spanish manufacturer. Moreover, this display will feature better graphics and an easy-to-use interface. We can’t say what the rest of the novelties could be.
However, it sounds very reasonable for this crossover to finally introduce some of the new driver-assistance features. As for the interior space, four passengers can find more than enough space inside the cabin. Fitting the fifth person inside, especially the adult one is very hard. The front occupants will surely enjoy a high level of comfort. Even the base trim level offers height-adjustable seats.
Ateca Crossover Will Get New Diesel Engine
The forthcoming 2021 Seat Ateca will most likely arrive with the all-new engine option. Spy shots are showing the latest changes and different exhausts. Furthermore, some reports are already writing about a new 2.0-liter diesel engine. On top of that, the same reports are saying that the Spanish automaker is testing Volkswagen’s TDI Evo unit with 150 horsepower.
Some other rumors are mentioning a 2.0-liter from Cupra Ateca (previously Seat Sport Ateca) model. However, this engine won’t meet the requirements in Europe. Another two possibilities are a 2.0-liter twin-turbo diesel or some sort of hybrid drivetrain. Whatsoever, Leon model already features a hybrid powertrain that is shared with VW Golf.
2021 Seat Ateca Price and Release Date
Newest Spanish crossover will go on sale during the second half of 2020. The approaching 2021 Seat Ateca will arrive with a slightly higher price so expect something between $25,000 and $27,000. Spanish manufacturer is yet to release exact debut which depends on the coronavirus outbreak.
