The 2018 SEAT Ateca FR has invigorating different crossover which took the market by storm last year and now obtains a special treatment to make it even more alluring to the buyers. The vehicle is set to be publicly divulged in Barcelona International Motor Show, and ready to be seen by the public not only as fully fledged high-performance SUV but a stunning and sportier trim level. It is also situated slightly below the XCellence range.

According to the Vice President of Research and Development at SEAT, Matthias Rabe, they added a sporty character on the FR version of Ateca's rich technological possibilities. The first SUV model promises a dynamic and enjoyable ride by adding the Progressive Steering System to its agile and sharp handling characteristics.

The 2018 SEAT Ateca FR comes with new bumpers and lustrous black radiator grille, which adds to its sporty lure. In addition, it also comes with exclusive LED fog lamps, FR logos and contrasting red stitching that marked the FR's cabin out from the standard Atecas.

The pedals of the FR are now skim aluminum while the door and roof trims boast a new glossy black finish. A set of 18-inch alloy wheels and twin exhaust tips also completes the Ateca's FR makeover.

The vehicle is exclusively accessible with a 187 hp turbocharge 2.0-liter petrol engine, which is capable of producing 190-horsepower. FR also comes with a six-speed manual transmission and DSG two-clutch automatic gearboxes that support the car's acceleration from 0-62mph in 7.5 seconds.

Meanwhile, the 2018 SEAT Ateca FR is set to kick off Barcelona next month. It is anticipated to be one of the featured vehicles in the Automobile Barcelona Show. The latest SUV should illustrate in more crowds and ultimately translate to more sales as it is made accessible in the dealership. Not only does it scream sporty for its outermost and under the hood, but the inside also showcased a well-planned styling that offers a lot of comfort for the passengers.
