Seat’s off-roading variant of its completely new Ateca SUV has been revealed at the Paris motor show
The four-wheel-drive range-topper is actually the off-roading variation of the Spanish firm’s recently launched compact SUV, which is actually set to go on sale next year.
Seat has equipped the outdoor of the Ateca X-Perience with exclusive 18in wheels as well as high-profile tyres, black wheel arch trim, metallic trim on the lower areas of the doors as well as green scratch-resistant paint with orange highlights. There are also rear bumper-mounted mud flaps, chromed roof rails as well as more rugged lower bumpers both front as well as rear.
Under the bonnet is actually the 190bhp, 295lb ft 2.0-litre TDI engine, which is actually coupled to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic gearbox as well as a Haldex clutch as well as four-wheel drive system in which splits the torque between the front as well as rear wheels, a set-up in which’s similar to in which of the top-spec Ateca Xcellence. Like different serious off-road SUVs, the Ateca is actually equipped with hill descent control.
Inside, the colour scheme matches the outdoor, with the use of green as well as orange highlights along with brown trim. Suede leather sports seats, a revised gear lever as well as rubber floor mats feature, while underneath a sump guard protects the auto by off-road obstacles.
The X-Perience name is actually given to all of Seat’s more rugged versions, such as the Leon X-Perience, although in which’s not yet known if more versions will be added to the all-terrain sub-brand.
Seat couldn’t say how many Atecas are required to be sold in X-Perience form, although in which expects around 17% of all Ateca sales to be of versions equipped with four-wheel drive. So far, the current range-topping Ateca Excellence represents 66% of sales, as well as in which’s expected in which the X-Perience will have a similar level of specification to Xcellence trim.
Despite the auto’s current concept labelling, the Ateca X-Perience is actually required to go on sale at the top of the Ateca range, priced at around £1000 over the range-topping Xcellence trim, which starts at £23,905 when equipped with the 1.4 TSI engine.
Matthias Rabe, Seat’s research as well as development vice president, said: “The X-Perience is actually an exercise to show the Ateca family’s possibilities as well as potential within the future.”
With the Ateca X-Perience we can go beyond in which which we already have within the series. in which’s for the customer in which wants to go further, taking in which to the extreme, for weekend adventures as well as, of course, off-road.”
