The Ateca has been awarded Honest John’s Car of the Year award, adding yet another accolade to its haul since it was launched last summer. Our SUV was also named best crossover.
The Honest John awards are based on the number of page views for each new car review during the year, with about two million unique page visits across the site every month.
Dan Powell, Honest John’s Managing Editor, said: “We had to wait a long time for SEAT’s first crossover, but the good-looking and affordable Ateca is proof that good things do indeed come to those who wait.
“Over the past 12 months, no other car has come close to matching the admiration of the Ateca, with our readers praising its style, comfort and running costs. As a result, the superb SEAT takes both the car of the year and most-popular crossover awards for 2017.”
Richard Harrison, Director of SEAT UK, said: “This is a fantastic award to receive, not least because it’s based on real-world enthusiasm for the Ateca, expressed by the huge numbers of people who use Honest John’s website.
“The Ateca is proving a huge hit for us in the UK and, in truth, we could hardly have scripted a better start for it, both in terms of its sales success and multi-award-winning first few months on sale.”
