Focus your attention between some cars that daily surround you, and you fall into the account: Seat Ateca and Toyota C-HR begin to see much.

But,exactly what to offer these new SUV to be triumphing? For although through two different concepts, both Ateca Seat as Toyota C-HR point directly to the heart of SUV sales so demands, they are in season and are two very balanced and complete models. One, the first SUV Seat, with a bet more functional and classic, preserving attributes we now know the brand; other, the C-HR, betting on a different design to the rest, which it draws much attention and a system hybrid technology with which Toyota wants to reign.

In front, and although you already have a wider range of diesel and gasoline engines, we got today Ateca Seat 1.0 TSI. 115 hp we think the best variant for comparison, since, in addition come from new small engine 3 cylinder and only 1.0 liters VW group displacement. A duel, then, cutting edge technology.

Ateca SeatOn the road, the first thing logically puts the Ateca Seat is its lightness. Based on the new MQB platform of the German group, cuts in over 150 kg weight Toyota C-HR, a model which, as usual, a hybrid system pays more and heavier components. Therefore logical that en Ateca Seat accelerations display the very top, also supported by an engine that, though small, has a sensational response to a Toyota that in speed demands also shown slower with automatic electronic drive, fantastic final performance but with a response somewhat slow in acceleration and stretching far over-regime. Yes, precisely to have an automatic change over manual 6 speed of Ateca, overtaking is closer in records.
