Although it's an SUV, the Ateca will spend most of its time on road, rather than off it
It's got a great range of familiar petrol and diesel engines...
As well as a choice between manual and quick-shifting dual-clutch automatic gearboxes
Which it can do, although it's more comfortable on the road
It drives nicely, too

...Which should have at least 296bhp and is almost certain to come with four-wheel drive
The Ateca made its public debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show
Where it wowed show-goers with its style and promises of a great drive and efficient engines
