Seat adds to popular Ateca range with FR trim

Seat has added a dynamic new trim level to its Ateca.

Sitting just below top-level XCellence specification, the FR trim adds 18-inch ‘Performance’ alloy wheels, body coloured wheel arches and side skirts, as well as redesigned bumpers and a gloss black grille. FR logos feature at the front and rear of the vehicle.

In the cabin, FR spec models will receive a multi-function leather steering wheel and sports seats, as well as aluminium pedals and red stitching throughout.

The Ateca FR will be available with a new 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, paired to either a manual or DSG automatic gearbox. Buyers can also opt for four-wheel-drive.

Dynamic Chassis Control and progressive steering will be available on the FR, promising a more involving drive and sportier handling characteristics.

Dr. Matthias Rabe, Vice-President of R&D at Seat, said: “The Ateca FR adds yet another level of excitement to our first SUV. The agile and precise handling of Ateca is reinforced with a touch of dynamism and fun at the wheel, with the FR trim adding for example Dynamic Chassis Control and progressive steering”

The Ateca FR is due to be launched in the UK this summer, with prices and specifications expected to be announced beforehand.
