The SEAT Ateca picked up the biggest award of the night at the 2021 What Car? Used Car Awards.
Named Used Car of the Year 2021, the Ateca was praised for its enjoyable driving experience, ride comfort, practicality and value for money.
Mark Pearson, Haymarket Automotive’s Used Cars Editor, said:“Here is an immensely likeable family SUV that can now be bought for under half what you’d need to buy one new. None of the other category winners could match its combination of all-round desirability, practicality and excellent value for money. It’s great to drive, too, with top-notch handling and a range of punchy and efficient engines. On top of that, it’s comfortable, reliable and its interior is both spacious and well equipped.”
The Ateca was also named Family SUV of the year and it’s smaller sibling, the Arona, scooped up the Best Used Small SUV award.
Richard Harrison, SEAT UK Managing Director, said: “SEAT entered a new era with the launch of its first ever SUV, the Ateca, which brought some much-needed fun and sizzle into the SUV segment. That winning formula, also since mirrored with its Arona and Tarraco SUV siblings, has taken the UK market by storm, with consistently strong demand for Ateca in the new and used car markets.”
The SEAT Arona has been a firm favourite for many UK drivers. It provides great practicality features to make family life easier and comes at a great price, making it an affordable option for many, without compromising on performance, style or strength.
Richard Harrison concluded: “It’s tremendous the strengths of our SUV range is being recognised in the used car market and shows SEAT is leading the way with offering a lasting quality product, that puts a smile on your face for many years. These awards give further confidence to used car customers that they can rely on SEAT cars to deliver class-leading design, driver-appeal, engineering and technology.”
