Ever since the Ateca arrived on the market in 2016, it has been one our favourite medium SUVs. Sharing its underpinnings with the Skoda Karoq and Volkswagen Tiguan, it makes use of the VW Group parts bin to great effect. Last summer the Ateca received a facelift, with a revised, more ornate front grille, new LED headlights and updated bumpers, while at the rear the clusters now feature sequential indicators that scroll to show the intended direction of travel, together with a new handwriting-style badge. Inside there’s an updated infotainment system, a fresh new steering wheel and revisions to the door cards and upholstery designs. All of the enhancements build on what was already a superb package and as a result, the latest Ateca looks and feels better than ever.
