2019 Seat Cupra Ateca – Drive, Interior and Exterior. Color: Rodium Grey. Subscribe.
The essence of every CUPRA is its power, performance and driveability, and to meet these demands under the Ateca’s bonnet is one of the most advanced four-cylinder petrol engines on the market today.
The 1,984cc direct-injection, turbocharged unit has a bore and stroke of 82.5mm and 92.8mm respectively with a compression ratio of 9.3:1 helping it to produce its impressive power output of 300PS between 5,300rpm and 6,500rpm. Add to this a huge 400Nm of torque available at a wide range of 2,000-5,200rpm and the CUPRA Ateca can reach a maximum speed of 247km/h.
And because of the CUPRA Ateca’s mix of low weight, (it tips the scales at only 1,540kg w/o driver), and high output engine, the SUV can reach 100km/h from a standing start in just 5.2 seconds.
That rapid acceleration figure is helped by the integration of the newly developed seven-speed DSG transmission, engineered to offer a sportier feel with faster, smoother and more precise changes.The CUPRA Ateca also features a launch control function for even greater acceleration from a standing start.
Combined with the four exhausts at the rear, the CUPRA Ateca’s mechanical performance is matched with a powerful sound, helping to amplify the sense of drama from the driver’s seat.
But developments aren’t solely about absolute performance; the CUPRA Ateca also incorporates technologies to improve efficiency, so that the SUV delivers as an everyday car too.
To this end the seven-speed gearbox has been modified to combine excellent performance with low levels of fuel consumption, while the 2.0 litre TSI engine works with a newly designed Otto Particulate Filter System to fulfil the latest emissions legislation.
These developments mean that carbon emissions for the CUPRA Ateca sit in the range of 192 g/km – 201 g/km with fuel efficiency figures of 8.5 litres/100km – 8.9litres/100km on the WLTP cycle.
