SEAT says its new Ateca SUV is the best performing model in its history in terms of residual value forecasts from CAP. The industry data experts believe that the Ateca is expected to retain 52.6 per cent of its value on average across the range after three years/30,000 miles, with some models achieving higher values.
SEAT also points to the Ateca’s favourable official CO2 emissions and fuel consumption figures, with the 1.6 TDI 113 bhp manual achieving up to 65.7 miles per gallon on the combined cycle, while emitting just 113 grams per kilometre of CO2. The more powerful 2.0 TDI 148 bhp 4Drive (four-wheel-drive) XCELLENCE manual achieves 55.4 mpg and emits just 129 g/km of CO2.
SEAT UK Director, Richard Harrison, commented, “The news for Ateca just keeps getting better and better. Only two weeks ago, it was named Best Crossover in the Auto Express New Car Awards 2016, and now we’re celebrating an RV forecast just shy of 60 per cent. Mind you, it really is a great all-round proposition, with substance to back up its undeniable style. That probably goes a long way to explaining why it’s already generating the highest level of interest we’ve ever seen for a new SEAT model in the UK.”
The Spanish manaufacturer has also launched a series of UK finance offers for its latest model, with pricing from as little as £279 per month based on an Ateca SE 1.6 TDI 115 PS (113 bhp) (36 month, 10,000 mile per annum agreement without metallic paint).
