Following an online crowd sourcing data competition, which attracted almost 13,000 entries, SEAT UK has confirmed pricing and specification for new Ateca ‘First Edition’. Created purely as a one-off launch trim level, exclusivity of the Ateca First Edition is assured, with just 200 examples destined for UK retail buyers.
SEAT’s online ‘lifestyle configurator’ highlighted the most popular British specification choices as 18-inch bi-colour alloy wheels, satellite-navigation system with eight-inch touchscreen, keyless entry/go, electric tailgate with virtual pedal for opening and closing, rear parking sensors with rear-view camera, dark-tinted rear windows, black roof rails and window surrounds. So, SEAT has included these choices as standard on the Ateca ‘First Edition’ model.
The SEAT Ateca ‘First Edition’ is priced at £21,995 (1.0 TSI) and £24,305 (1.6 TDI). It slots into the Ateca range above SE and below the flagship Xcellence, the generously equipped ‘First Edition’ offers more than £3,500 of additional equipment over the former, saving customers over £1,100. It comes in a choice of three colours, Nevada White, Rodium Grey and Samoa Orange.
Priced from just £17,990, the full Ateca SUV range – including the exclusive ‘First Edition’ – will be available to pre-order from 1st June, ahead of the UK showroom launch on 9th September.
