2017 Seat Ateca – Body Style Changes:
The interior styling for 2017 Seat Ateca radiates simplicity as well as appeal, aiming to provide the passengers with incredible safety, comfort and luxury. The vehicle will in a broad way base its style on the Volkswagen MBQ platform. The auto has been built for both the tall and short drivers. This feature is owed to the spacious interior allowing for sufficient head and legroom. A spacious cabin has been incorporated for passenger comfort with the back seats providing sufficient cargo space.
The exteriors of the 2017 Seat Ateca are quite simple but appealing. For instance, the front is well-defined by a set of sharp but aggressive headlights. The SUV is also quite large compared to the previous SUV models – an overall length of 4,360 mm; a height of 1600 mm and 1840 mm width. The model comes with a set of the latest Leon wheels. The wheelbase is quite massive – approximately 2,600 mm offering sufficient balance on the road especially on high speed.
The 2017 Seat Ateca will provide an appropriate cargo space for both the AWD & FWD – 510 liters and 485 liters respectively. Though the auto is highly speculated to look similar to the 20V20, there will also be quite a few notable differences.
