Award-winning Suv Ateca Model Takes Centre Stage At Jennings

Issue 16

The anticipated wait is finally over for customers of Jennings SEAT, part of the multi-award winning Jennings Motor Group, who are wanting to get their hands on SEAT's first SUV Ð the new Ateca.

To mark the arrival of the latest model at Jennings SEAT last month, customers were invited to the Middlesbrough-based dealership to see and test drive the Spanish manufacturer’s very first SUV model.

Officially unveiled at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show, the new Ateca is set to make SEAT a strong competitor within the SUV segment.

Craig Johnson, franchise manager at Jennings SEAT in Middlesbrough said: “The launch of the very first SUV model marks the start of a new era for SEAT. We are delighted to be able to offer the new Ateca, which has already won Best Crossover title on its first appearance in the Auto Express New Car Awards, to our customers.

“The latest model offers powerful fuel efficient engines and the latest SEAT technology, as well as boasting a sharp-looking exterior and spacious interior profile.

Priced from £17,990, the new Ateca comes with a choice of five model derivatives, including the Ateca S, SE, SE Technology, First Edition and the range-topping Xcellence.

Engines range from a 1.0 TSI 115 PS and 1.4 ECOTSi, to a powerful 2.0-litre 190 PS.

The entry level S has all the essential kit for a growing family or young-at-heart couple. Stylish exterior lines are complemented by 16-inch ‘Design’ alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights. The interior includes air conditioning, Media System Touch five-inch touchscreen with USB and SD connectivity, leather steering wheel and gearstick, in addition to split-folding rear seats with reclining function.

The SE level offers an array of comfort, convenience and style features, including dual-zone climate control, cruise control, electrically adjustable, heated and folding door mirrors and rear parking sensors.

A range of technology is also available, including SEAT’s Full Link (three-in-one connectivity solution for smartphones and tablets), in addition to an upgraded infotainment in the form of Media System Plus with eight-inch colour touchscreen, USB/Aux-in-port, SD card slot, eight speakers, voice control and Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free system.

Craig added: “We were extremely encouraged by the volume of enquiries the new Ateca was generating ahead of the model arriving at the dealership. Since its launch, the level of interest has continued to grow with customers booking test drives and wanting to experience and explore the model for themselves.”

For added peace of mind motoring, the new Ateca has obtained a 5-star Euro NCAP score using the new, more severe 2016 test regime which demands vehicles must pass an increased number of tests. Advanced accident prevention systems have been fitted to all versions as standard and have proven to be highly effective. In addition, this safety programme also evaluates the lane keeping, Lane Assist system, which is also available on the new Ateca.

Other models in the SEAT range and available to test drive at Jennings SEAT’s Middlesbrough-based dealership, includes the Mii, Ibiza, Ibiza ST, Ibiza CUPRA, Toledo, Leon SC, Leon ST, Leon X-PERIENCE, Leon CUPRA and the Alhambra.

The dealership is also Motability accredited, which allows customers who are eligible for a brand new motor through the Motability programme, to take advantage of a three-year leasing contract.

Customers who purchase a new or quality used car at Jennings SEAT, can also take advantage of a range of aftersales facilities, including service, MOT, an accident repair centre and parts.
