With the CUPRA Ateca, Seat presents the first vehicle of its new brand. With 300 HP (221 kW) and 400 Nm as standard, the sporty SUV is not exactly underpowered. Despite its higher weight than an SUV, only 5.2 seconds elapse during a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h and the top speed is 245 km/h. The SUV is equipped with a sporty engine with a power output of 221 kW.
But there is even more to it. We were involved in the development of the sporty SUV right from the start and have added another 50 HP (36 kW). Now the power pack has 350 HP (257 kW) at its disposal. And the torque curve is also impressive: Between 2000 and 5200 U/in, an enormous 440 Nm are available.
For such concentrated power, the starting position should also be considered. ABT lowering springs ensure that the SUV keeps to the track as precisely as only the Spanish high-speed trains can.
