In an effort to see what the sporty version of the new SEAT Ateca SUV, revealed only a few days ago, will look like, designer X-Tomi has penned this Cupra version. The car maker has not confirmed yet they are going to make a Cupra Ateca, but if they do, chances are it’ll look pretty close to what you see here.
To design his SEAT Ateca Cupra, Tomi has drawn inspiration from the existing SEAT Cupra model. It can be seen in the shape of the front bumper with its large air intakes and mesh grille as well as the chunky side skirts. This being a SUV, he’s also added the new underbody protection component which double as styling elements. Naturally for a Cupra, the car also gets lowered suspension, larger wheels, and better brakes with red calipers.
As for the engine the real, production SEAT Ateca Cupra would get, by today’s standards it should be a 2.0 liter turbocharged with well over 200 horsepower. But who knows what will happen by the time this model is ready to launch. By then SEAT may be using a 1.6 or a 1.4 turbo engine in their high-performance model. But rest assured whatever engine size becomes the trend, the power figure won’t diminish below the current level.
