0:00:04.720,0:00:10.000
hey what’s up guys Syed here and today i
am in the 2020* Cupra Ateca

0:00:10.000,0:00:13.200
so the reason why i don’t say SEAT is
because cupra is an

0:00:13.200,0:00:18.320
independent brand that was created
from seat’s motor sports division so

0:00:18.320,0:00:21.840
if you notice on this car there’s no
seat branding whatsoever it’s all

0:00:21.840,0:00:25.119
cupra i know it’s a bit confusing
because you have the seat ateca and

0:00:25.119,0:00:28.880
then this is the cupra ateca
but just remember that cupra is a

0:00:28.880,0:00:32.320
standalone brand on its own
so some specs for this car this cupra

0:00:32.320,0:00:35.920
ateca is an suv that comes with a
2-liter turbocharged engine producing

0:00:35.920,0:00:38.559
300 horsepower, it’s actually the same engine you get in

0:00:38.559,0:00:41.520
like the volkswagen gti and stuff so it comes with 300

0:00:41.520,0:00:45.680
horsepower 400 newton meters of torque
mated to a 7-speed dsg transmission

0:00:45.680,0:00:50.480
so this car does 0-100 in about 5.2 seconds partly thanks to the all-wheel drive

0:00:50.480,0:00:54.160
system. fuel consumption on paper this
car is supposed to do about 13.5

0:00:54.160,0:00:59.039
kilometers per liter but since i got the car i’ve been driving

0:00:59.039,0:01:02.000
pretty fast

0:01:03.600,0:01:06.960
uh because the sound exhaust is just so
good in

0:01:06.960,0:01:11.040
cupra mode i’m gonna talk about that
later on but yeah i haven’t been driving

0:01:11.040,0:01:15.600
like a normal person so my fuel
consumption isn’t going to be accurate

0:01:15.600,0:01:19.119
so cupra says this car offers the performance of a premium

0:01:19.119,0:01:22.799
segment vehicle and has no competitors
in its price segment

0:01:22.799,0:01:26.479
which i have to agree with because this
car starts at about 179

0:01:26.479,0:01:33.439
999 which is 180 000 basically
and if you try to find a 300 horsepower

0:01:33.439,0:01:37.520
continental suv in this price range
you’re not going to find any i think the

0:01:37.520,0:01:43.119
closest car that comes to this
is the Volvo xc40 T5 but that

0:01:43.119,0:01:47.840
is a bit more expensive than this 180
plus thousand and that car is still 50

0:01:47.840,0:01:54.079
horsepower down on this car that one has
about 250 horsepower this car has 300.

0:01:54.079,0:01:58.000
so exterior wise i simply love the way
this car looks okay this

0:01:58.000,0:02:02.240
is called the um crystal black i think
where’s the key

0:02:02.240,0:02:05.840
with the logo with the cupra logo and
just the

0:02:05.840,0:02:09.200
way that this car is designed it feels
as if like you know

0:02:09.200,0:02:13.360
what a car would look like if a gaming
company designed it you know like

0:02:13.360,0:02:18.400
the cupra logo just looks like some
assassin’s creed or some gaming

0:02:18.400,0:02:22.000
company logo i don’t know but it just
looks like very gamer

0:02:22.000,0:02:25.599
kind of car and if you look at the
exterior or the headlights you get a

0:02:25.599,0:02:28.560
full LEDs you get a honeycomb grill on top you get

0:02:28.560,0:02:33.200
a honeycomb grille on the
front bumper as well you get a cupra

0:02:33.200,0:02:36.080
lettering below which you know is similar to like

0:02:36.080,0:02:39.519
the audi quattro that kind of uh you
know lettering

0:02:39.519,0:02:43.599
you get the quad exhaust at the back
19-inch alloy wheels as standard

0:02:43.599,0:02:47.360
and this car even has illumination lights
so you know when you open your door

0:02:47.360,0:02:51.360
and then there’s like a light shining
below on the floor with the car logo and

0:02:51.360,0:02:57.200
stuff this car actually comes with that so you don’t have to like go to aliexpress to get it

0:02:57.300,0:03:03.200
so overall yeah this car simply beautiful i love it and this car size wise right it’s about the same size as a

0:03:03.200,0:03:06.239
nissan qashqai because i parked right
beside one

0:03:06.239,0:03:10.480
and here’s the picture for comparison so
it’s about the same size as the nissan

0:03:10.480,0:03:15.040
qashqai so it’s not like a
full-on big suv you know it’s a i would

0:03:15.040,0:03:19.000
say like a mid-sized suv

0:03:19.000,0:03:24.879
s o overall right the interior it’s not like you don’t get the sense that you’re in a

0:03:24.879,0:03:27.920
luxury car per say and the reason i say that is because you

0:03:27.920,0:03:32.640
do get some cheaper feeling
materials here and there so for example

0:03:32.640,0:03:35.599
this part here right on this dashboard this

0:03:35.599,0:03:39.040
is actually it’s not like hard plastic okay this is

0:03:39.040,0:03:42.159
actually quite soft but i don’t know why for some reason

0:03:42.159,0:03:46.000
they used like this kind of look it looks like the kind

0:03:46.000,0:03:50.560
of hard plastics you get in entry-level japanese cars like in a

0:03:50.560,0:03:54.000
vios or yaris. even over here you get the same kind of

0:03:54.000,0:03:58.080
material as over here at the front dash it doesn’t look

0:03:58.080,0:04:03.040
expensive or premium and same goes over here it’s just regular

0:04:03.040,0:04:06.640
black plastic very similar to the kind you get in

0:04:06.640,0:04:10.239
non-luxury cars basically another thing is infotainment

0:04:10.239,0:04:13.760
screen here right it’s made of this like piano black or

0:04:13.760,0:04:17.120
gloss black kind of finish and after
just one day it’s starting to become a

0:04:17.120,0:04:21.120
fingerprint magnet and i can see all
my smudges because it’s touchscreen so

0:04:21.120,0:04:25.840
you know this thing attracts a lot of
fingerprints and stuff like that however

0:04:25.840,0:04:29.199
there are some nicer aspects to the interior so first off you

0:04:29.199,0:04:31.919
get the chrome trims around the aircon
vents here

0:04:31.919,0:04:35.840
you get this audi virtual cockpit
looking instrument display

0:04:35.840,0:04:40.000
so it’s 10.2 inches across i believe and
it

0:04:40.000,0:04:44.960
it works quite similar to an audi
virtual cockpit so you have all your

0:04:44.960,0:04:48.880
different views you can toggle between like you know yeah you

0:04:48.880,0:04:52.240
want your rpm control on the left you
want your speed on the right

0:04:52.240,0:04:56.160
you know you want your navigation to be
in the middle and even the

0:04:56.160,0:04:59.680
fuel gauge and the engine temperature
gauge

0:04:59.680,0:05:03.680
very audi like, and i have to say the leather on the seats

0:05:03.680,0:05:06.880
you can sort of feel the difference between like

0:05:06.880,0:05:10.560
a full-on luxury brand like audi bmw
mercedes

0:05:10.560,0:05:14.720
the leather that they use on their seats
is quite different from the one

0:05:14.720,0:05:18.160
you can feel in this cupra ateca because

0:05:18.160,0:05:21.600
you touch it immediately you know but i
mean it’s not like

0:05:21.600,0:05:24.800
cheap looking or anything it’s still
leather

0:05:24.800,0:05:28.720
it’s still leather seats you can see the
bolsters here are really big so it keeps

0:05:28.720,0:05:32.479
you in place when you’re driving so yeah just i mean overall right the

0:05:32.479,0:05:35.680
interior it’s a mix of both cheap looking

0:05:35.680,0:05:39.199
materials and a bit more high-end materials but to

0:05:39.199,0:05:42.560
be honest just it’s just an average looking

0:05:42.560,0:05:45.840
interior in my opinion. so the best way i can summarize the

0:05:45.840,0:05:50.240
interior of this car for you right
is that it’s a mix of audi volkswagen

0:05:50.240,0:05:53.759
and toyota so you get elements of audi in the

0:05:53.759,0:05:56.400
instrument cluster here and the steering
wheel

0:05:56.400,0:06:00.720
volkswagen in the gear shifter and the
buttons in the center console

0:06:00.720,0:06:05.520
and toyota with the cheaper looking materials here

0:06:05.520,0:06:09.520
and here and here

0:06:10.240,0:06:14.240
so next we go into the features the
features is where i think the

0:06:14.240,0:06:18.560
cupra ateca really shines because this
car has a lot of features

0:06:18.560,0:06:23.360
okay so for example you get your park
assist 360 degree camera which is

0:06:23.360,0:06:27.360
very useful because there were times
where you know how you can’t really see

0:06:27.360,0:06:30.560
the markings in the lot so you don’t know whether you are

0:06:30.560,0:06:34.240
parking like within the lot properly and
the 360 camera really helps with this also

0:06:34.240,0:06:37.840
comes with a beats sound system so the music quality is

0:06:37.840,0:06:41.039
really good the bass is very strong
that’s the first thing i noticed

0:06:41.039,0:06:44.960
when i turned on the radio in this car

0:06:45.440,0:06:49.599
but this beats audio system is an option
okay you have to pay for it it doesn’t

0:06:49.599,0:06:52.400
come by default with the car if you are an

0:06:52.400,0:06:54.639
audio audiophile i think that’s what they call

0:06:54.639,0:06:58.160
it? not pedophile can already
yeah if you’re an audiophile you’re

0:06:58.160,0:07:00.479
gonna you’re gonna like the sound
quality in this car

0:07:00.479,0:07:03.919
and this car also comes with apple
carplay and android auto but

0:07:03.919,0:07:07.840
it’s the wired kind of apple carplay and
android auto which means you need

0:07:07.840,0:07:11.919
a usb you need to plug in your usb to
your phone for it to work okay it won’t

0:07:11.919,0:07:15.680
work wirelessly you get an electric
tailgate with virtual pedal so what that

0:07:15.680,0:07:18.560
means is you know if you are carrying a
lot of stuff and you don’t

0:07:18.560,0:07:22.240
your hands are not free to actually
reach out to the handle and open the

0:07:22.240,0:07:26.080
tailgate you can actually wave
your feet under the car and the tailgate

0:07:26.080,0:07:29.120
will open automatically
you get forward collision warning as

0:07:29.120,0:07:32.960
well you get adaptive cruise control so
adaptive cruise control it will like

0:07:32.960,0:07:36.960
sort of tack to the car in front of you
and it will just follow that car’s speed

0:07:36.960,0:07:40.080
rear cross traffic alert so
let’s say you’re backing out of space

0:07:40.080,0:07:43.759
and you can’t see the back and
this will actually help you keep a

0:07:43.759,0:07:47.520
lookout so you know if there’s a car
coming by behind you

0:07:47.520,0:07:51.039
auto dimming headlights so you won’t
like glare the other drivers on the

0:07:51.039,0:07:54.479
other side of the road seven
airbags you get auto folding mirror so

0:07:54.479,0:07:58.160
when you lock the car the mirrors will
fold up you get ambient lighting as well

0:07:58.160,0:08:02.000
inside you know you can choose from
various colors not too many colors you

0:08:02.000,0:08:05.440
get a wireless phone charger as well so
i tried it it works but wireless

0:08:05.440,0:08:08.879
charging you know it’s a bit slow
actually not a bit it’s much slower than

0:08:08.879,0:08:12.319
your cable charging so yeah in terms of
the instrument display

0:08:12.319,0:08:16.639
the infotainment and the features right
this car comes with i think

0:08:16.639,0:08:19.680
yeah those are the stronger points of
this car in addition to the

0:08:19.680,0:08:23.280
performance which we’ll talk about later
on

0:08:23.680,0:08:28.319
so practicality wise yeah it’s quite
practical i can fit like

0:08:28.319,0:08:32.640
how many seat gave me i don’t know how
many water bottles

0:08:32.640,0:08:37.039
so i can fit like quite a lot of these
small water bottles in the door bins

0:08:37.039,0:08:39.279
here and you get the wireless charging

0:08:39.279,0:08:41.440
tray if you’re not using it you can keep
your stuff here as well

0:08:41.440,0:08:45.760
two cup holders this center console it’s
the opening is quite small but it’s

0:08:45.760,0:08:49.440
quite deep in okay and the glove box seems to be

0:08:49.440,0:08:54.240
about average size as well not too
big you get uh two sd card slots here

0:08:54.240,0:08:56.880
you get a cd player as well i don’t know who you

0:08:56.880,0:09:00.880
still use the cds anymore but yeah
with the driver seat in my original

0:09:00.880,0:09:03.839
position i do get quite a lot of leg
room

0:09:03.839,0:09:06.880
and i get a lot of head room as well and
because the

0:09:06.880,0:09:10.640
center transmission tunnel isn’t that
big i believe you can fit three average

0:09:10.640,0:09:13.519
sized adults in the back. boot space you get

0:09:13.519,0:09:19.839
485 liters and you can knock down all
the rear seats to make even more room

0:09:20.560,0:09:24.959
so performance is what this car is all
about

0:09:24.959,0:09:30.000
and okay so first of all right the meter
goes all the way to 300 kilometers an

0:09:30.000,0:09:33.040
hour and you get the quad exhaust at the back

0:09:33.040,0:09:36.000
so you know this car means business

0:09:36.000,0:09:38.000
launch control throttle

0:09:38.000,0:09:40.000
(thrown back into my seat)

0:09:40.480,0:09:45.120
in comfort mode the car feels very so
okay by the way there are like different

0:09:45.120,0:09:49.839
driving modes there are
six driving modes i think yeah six

0:09:49.839,0:09:54.320
comfort, sport, cupra, individual, off-road and snow the last

0:09:54.320,0:09:59.120
two you probably wouldn’t even
use usually for me i put the car into

0:09:59.120,0:10:02.640
comfort or cupra mode okay i don’t even bother

0:10:02.640,0:10:06.240
with sports mode. comfort mode is you know like for your

0:10:06.240,0:10:10.160
everyday driving the car is you can’t even you can’t really hear

0:10:10.160,0:10:14.160
the exhaust that much feels like a regular car like a regular

0:10:14.160,0:10:18.240
suv you know that you’re driving but when you put it into cupra mode

0:10:18.240,0:10:22.720
right that’s where everything changes
so between three and four thousand RPMs

0:10:22.720,0:10:26.640
is the sweet spot for the exhaust sound
so in my pov drive video

0:10:26.640,0:10:29.839
i try to keep the revs between three and
four thousand for you guys so you can

0:10:29.839,0:10:34.320
actually hear the exhaust sound cupra mode is

0:10:34.320,0:10:38.160
where the party is at because in cupra mode

0:10:38.160,0:10:41.839
you can feel the steering tighten up and it just

0:10:41.839,0:10:44.640
gives you confidence to push this car to drive it

0:10:44.640,0:10:46.800
fast because you know you have all-wheel
drive

0:10:46.800,0:10:51.360
and with just the feeling that you get
from your steering wheel how tight it is

0:10:51.360,0:10:55.800
it just gives you confidence to go fast
really this is cupra mode

0:10:55.800,0:10:59.100
lovely stock exhaust

0:10:59.100,0:11:01.100
any my concentration face

0:11:02.560,0:11:06.640
you can hear the pops and crackles but
it’s a bit

0:11:06.640,0:11:10.959
soft so it’s not immediately obvious i
don’t know whether the camera can pick

0:11:10.959,0:11:15.600
up the pops but it’s there trust me it’s there

0:11:15.600,0:11:20.079
but in cupra mode man the car like is
very responsive

0:11:20.079,0:11:25.040
the engine brake in cupra mode is strong

0:11:25.360,0:11:32.830
i’m keeping the rpms between three and
four thousand by the way

0:11:38.160,0:11:42.320
and of course in cupra mode is where you
can do your launch control and in my pov

0:11:42.320,0:11:45.040
video i did launch control a few times you can

0:11:45.040,0:11:48.880
check it out the link will be below if the video is ready

0:11:48.880,0:11:52.320
and i think also for a performance car
right i have to say that it is

0:11:52.320,0:11:56.800
very comfortable it goes over bumps
really well apart from the comfort

0:11:56.800,0:12:01.760
the car is also very quiet i don’t think the windows are double

0:12:01.760,0:12:05.519
glazed but it’s just very quiet and there’s not a lot of wind

0:12:05.519,0:12:09.360
noise i think there’s
hardly any wind noise road noise also

0:12:09.360,0:12:12.399
not too bad the quietness of this car was one of

0:12:12.399,0:12:17.440
the first things that i noticed when i first drove it so in

0:12:17.440,0:12:19.920
terms of performance yeah you’re not going to be

0:12:19.920,0:12:24.079
complaining with this car really at this price point with the performance

0:12:24.079,0:12:28.880
and the features and all that i think its really good value for money

0:12:28.880,0:12:32.079
fuel consumption i can’t really complain because i’ve been

0:12:32.079,0:12:40.320
i haven’t been driving like a regular
person i’ve been

0:12:40.320,0:12:44.399
i’ve been doing that the whole time so
um

0:12:44.399,0:12:51.600
i am averaging about let me see
7.6 kilometers per liter

0:12:51.600,0:12:55.600
driving like a madman i’m gonna do a
fuel consumption test a proper one

0:12:55.600,0:12:59.200
if i can control my right foot

0:13:01.920,0:13:06.320
and in some ways this car reminds me a
bit of the tiguan 2.0 r line because of the

0:13:06.320,0:13:09.680
body shape the volkswagen looking
interior

0:13:09.680,0:13:14.079
the performance if you want a Tiguan 2.0 R-Line but it’s too expensive then this

0:13:14.079,0:13:17.760
is definitely a very very good alternative so yeah to sum up what i

0:13:17.760,0:13:21.279
like about the car the looks, performance, features, value for

0:13:21.279,0:13:24.320
money what i dislike about the car.. i think

0:13:24.320,0:13:27.600
is the this the choice of materials that they

0:13:27.600,0:13:30.880
use like the materials they use
they are not that bad you know but i

0:13:30.880,0:13:33.680
don’t know why for some reason they
choose to make it look like this like

0:13:33.680,0:13:36.880
this cheap looking plastic that’s the first

0:13:36.880,0:13:40.560
thing second thing i would say if you want

0:13:40.560,0:13:44.320
to make the car as good as it can
be then you have to pay for optional

0:13:44.320,0:13:49.199
extras like the upgraded sound system
the sunroof you know sunroof is an

0:13:49.199,0:13:52.160
option also on this car yeah i mean it’s the same scenario in a

0:13:52.160,0:13:54.560
lot of other cars right you want it to
be

0:13:54.560,0:13:57.600
as good as it can be you have to pay for
all the options so i’m really just

0:13:57.600,0:14:01.360
nitpicking maybe another thing is this infotainment

0:14:01.360,0:14:05.120
screen it’s a fingerprint magnet if you are

0:14:05.120,0:14:08.639
looking for a luxury car vibe right i don’t think you’re gonna

0:14:08.639,0:14:12.720
get it so much from this car because when you step

0:14:12.720,0:14:16.560
into it you are reminded just looking around you’re reminded that

0:14:16.560,0:14:22.639
you know this isn’t exactly a luxury car
so conclusion yeah it’s fantastic

0:14:22.639,0:14:26.160
also this car comes with three years
plus two years extended warranty hundred

0:14:26.160,0:14:29.360
thousand kilometers so you get a peace
of mind five years for the next five

0:14:29.360,0:14:32.959
years after you buy this car and also at this price point right i

0:14:32.959,0:14:37.040
don’t think there is any other car that comes close in terms of

0:14:37.040,0:14:40.240
performance features so this car is unique in that at this

0:14:40.240,0:14:42.959
price point it doesn’t really have any
competitors

0:14:42.959,0:14:46.079
so what i think is if you are looking to
get this car

0:14:46.079,0:14:51.120
just go down to the seat showroom just
test it for yourself and be blown away

0:14:51.120,0:14:56.240
and yeah better get it before they increase their prices again so

0:14:56.240,0:15:00.240
yep so thanks so much guys for watching
