Though sitting in a very competitive segment, it’s more than able to hold its own with a generous level of standard equipment, stylish design and an enjoyable driving experience. To enhance the Ateca’s appeal further, SEAT is now introducing a new trim level called the FR Black Edition. Here are five highlights of it.

SEAT Ateca FR Black Edition

Stealthier styling

There’s a growing trend for darkened, stealthier styling on cars and the Ateca FR Black Edition aims to cater to those buyers.

With its gloss black 19-inch ‘Exclusive’ alloy wheels, the Ateca most certainly stands out, while the gloss black is extended across the exterior, including on its roof rails and window surround trims. There’s also a real spoiler and dark-tinted rear windows.

Based on the generous FR Sport trim level

This new Black Edition arrives to sit very close to the top of the Ateca line-up, and is based on the already generously-equipped FR Sport model.

That means it already comes with a 10-inch digital cockpit display, leather upholstery and electric and heated front seats.

Great sound system

If you like listening to great music, you want a good sound system to really be able to enjoy it. That’s where the Black Edition comes in as it’s equipped with a Beats premium sound system as standard.

Featuring nine speakers, it offers full surround sound, as well as a subwoofer and amplifier. It’s worth noting that an upgraded sound system isn’t available on any other Ateca models.

Additional equipment fitted

The generous equipment levels don’t stop there, however, as the Black Edition also boasts further features on top of what we’ve already mentioned.

That’s because it comes with an emergency spare wheel (usually a £130 option), along with an electric tailgate with a foot sensor and a reversing camera. Considering the Black Edition is only £850 more expensive than a standard FR Sport model, it seems very good value for money.

Appealing 1.5-litre engine offered

Due to the Ateca FR Black Edition being a limited edition, SEAT is only offering it with a single engine option, rather than the usual choice found on this SUV,

That’s no bad thing, however, as it comes with what is the pick of the engine line-up anyway – a turbocharged 148bhp 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine. You can still get it with a choice of manual or DSG automatic gearboxes, and with a 0-60mph time of 8.8 seconds and a claimed fuel consumption of 41.5mpg, it makes for a great all-rounder.
