The forthcoming 2021 Seat Ateca is spied testing and it seems that the new model is hiding a mild facelift. From the images that we got, we can see that the latest Seat-badged variant is wearing camo at the front and rear.
The upcoming Tarraco SUV has been also caught testing alongside the new Ateca. Even though there’s plenty of camouflage at the front, the latest Ateca reveals the new pattern of the grille and more attractive rear. Besides that, a redesigned bumper no longer incorporates the fog lights.
2021 Seat Ateca Reveals a New Pattern of the Grille
The new 2021 Seat Ateca crossover shows plenty of camouflage at the front. However, we can see some of the refreshments through. The manufacturer used a new pattern of the grille and the redesigned bumper that no longer incorporates the fog lights. The grille looks attractive and is shaped like a hexagon, featuring the same mesh pattern as the Leon hatchback. The headlights will remain the same as on the pre-facelift model.
On the back, the upcoming 2021 Seat Ateca features the same attractive design as on the front. Taillights will use the latest LED and the manufacturer will use the same exhaust system as on the concept model.
We’re not expecting any significant changes inside the new 2021 Seat Ateca. The cabin will deal with a mid-cycle update according to the latest info. The infotainment will be updated and the new model will definitively provide more comfort as well. Also, SEAT will likely introduce more safety kit and there will be more standard features. The real deal will happen on the higher trims. This package will provide more upholstery options.
It will be interesting to see what the manufacturer will add in the final version. Things like a fly-by-wire DSG shifter and tablet screens will be offered on the standard package. According to a reliable source, the manufacturer will also add more customizations and even more color options.
Under the Hood
There is no info on what will power the new 2021 Seat Ateca model. According to some websites, the upcoming SUV may get a plug-in hybrid powertrain and mild-hybrid tech for some of the gasoline engines to cut fuel consumption and emissions.
The Seat badged SUV will likely come with gasoline powertrain that will be able to deliver 296 horsepower. However, from some information taken from the other forums, the manufacturer will give an additional 10 hp and make a total of 306 hp to match the new all-wheel-drive Cupra Leon ST. However, this information is not yet confirmed by Seat.
