A DSG-auto transmission option costs £26,340 OTR. It takes the Ateca FR from rest to 62 mph in 8.5 seconds and has a top speed of 125 mph (manual version) while official combined fuel economy and emissions figures come in at 52.3 mpg and 123 g/km.

The new 2.0 TSI 190 PS engined model costs £29,760 OTR and comes exclusively with 4Drive all-wheel drive and DSG transmission. Its statistics are 40.4 mpg combined fuel economy and 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds.

A 2.0 TDI, 150 PS model also comes with 4Drive for added traction, posting benchmarks of 0-62 mph in nine seconds exactly and 122 mph top speed, with 55.4 mpg average fuel economy and CO2 emissions at 129 g/km - priced at £28,410 OTR.

Topping out the powertrain options is the 2.0 TDI 190 PS with 4Drive and seven-speed DSG transmission, priced at £30,930 OTR. It completes the 0-62mph sprint in 7.5 seconds, with top speed rising to 132 mph. Official 53.3 mpg average, with CO2 at 135 g/km.

The Ateca’s styling gains a number of FR designation features, including a high-gloss black front grille, aluminium roof rails, window frames and lower door trim, chrome double tailpipes, body colour wheel arch surrounds, side skirts and a roof spoiler. It rides on 18-inch ‘Performance’ alloys, or optional 19-inch ‘Exclusive’ rims with a machined finish.
