Another award has been added to the Ateca’s impressive haul with the best mid-size SUV win at the 2017 Fleet News awards on Wednesday night (15 March).
The Ateca stood out from its category rivals with its striking design plus safety and technology features – as well as its practicality for demanding fleet customers.
Our SUV was also praised for its affordability for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large fleets. It’s a segment leader in price as well as performance, with an entry-level P11D of just £17,935, a benefit-in-kind (BiK) rate of 20 per cent and class-leading residual values of up to 59 per cent after three years/60,000 miles.
The Fleet News judges said of the Ateca: “Excellent value for money for fleets and drivers, the Ateca has a high quality interior, good range of diesel and petrol engines and attractive looks. SEAT has a winner in this category.”
Peter McDonald, SEAT UK’s Head of Fleet and Business Sales, commented on yet another win for the Ateca, saying: “Since its release in September, the Ateca has been a frontrunner in its segment, leading the way with its sharp design, comfort and pricing to revitalise the SUV market.
“With four years of consecutive growth in the fleet sector, our product and approach to business sales is delivering real results. Fleet initiatives like the four-day test drive scheme have resonated with the sector, and are built on an understanding of what businesses are looking for to help us deliver a leading fleet service.”
