SEAT Ireland has announced details of pricing and arrival time in the Irish market for the new CUPRA Ateca, the first model in SEAT’s new dedicated CUPRA sports car brand.
The new CUPRA Ateca is available to pre-order now and will be available to test drive at Airside CUPRA, Ireland’s only specialist CUPRA dealer, from January 2019.
Prices for the CUPRA Ateca start at €49,990.
The CUPRA Ateca has a turbocharged, direct-injection, four-cylinder 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine that produces 300 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Power is delivered through a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission and 4Drive all-wheel drive.
According to SEAT, as the SUV market continues to expand, the CUPRA Ateca will create its own niche upon its introduction to the Irish market from January 2019.
Niall Phillips, Brand Director at SEAT and CUPRA Ireland commented, “We are thrilled to be welcoming the CUPRA Ateca to Ireland in January next year. It marks the birth of our new CUPRA brand, which we are very excited about.
The introduction of the CUPRA Ateca and indeed the CUPRA brand allows us to target a new customer base, and we are very confident that it will resonate with Irish motorists. The introduction of this new SUV as part of our new brand, is a defining moment and key milestone which we are very proud of.”
