New SEAT Ateca v Renault Kadjar

The SEAT new car range is set to increase with the upcoming SEAT Ateca being introduced. In a recent review Auto Express put it up against the Renault Kadjar SUV to see who came out on top.

Set to be released in September the SEAT Ateca is the missing piece in the extensive SEAT new car range and will enter the highly competitive SUV market taking on many of the traditional heavy weights.

SEAT Ateca v Renault Kadjar head to head

Boot capacity

With a larger capacity and wider boot opening the SEAT Ateca beats the Renault Kadjar. Additionally, the SEAT Ateca has an optional power tailgate that is not available with the Renault.


Both cars tested featured impressive 19” alloys and 225/45 tyres, but the SEAT Ateca was found to have a better suspension set up delivering handling and a more comfortable ride. Additionally, the SEAT Ateca proved to be more engaging to drive especially when cornering.


Both the SEAT Ateca and Renault Kadjar four wheel drive options are close on emissions with the Ateca emitting 128g/km whilst the Renault Kadjar is 129g/km. For the business user the SEAT Ateca front wheel drive comes out on top with emissions of just 114g/km.

Auto Express verdict

The new SEAT Ateca came out on top in the test and “goes straight to the top of the class” with its running costs, performance and practicality.  Discover the all new SEAT Ateca at Jennings SEAT – for more information call 0333 414 9750 to speak to a SEAT specialist today.
