It’s a motoring question that’s as old as motoring itself: with your choice of car, you can have fun, or you can have a family, but is it really possible to have both at the same time?
Well, I’m hoping that the next six months with the Cupra Ateca is going to prove that you can. Cupra? Surely I mean Seat, right? Well, no, not exactly. If you hadn’t heard, Seat’s performance arm has now branched out on its own to become a new brand in its own right, and the Ateca SUV is its first offering.
That should give it a good start in fulfilling the family duties necessary over the next six months. Even among other mid-size SUVs, it’s a pretty roomy car. In fact, the regular Ateca was recently voted by Auto Trader audience as the Best Car for Families in our 2019 New Car Awards. That should mean that it’ll suit my little family - consisting of Felix (5) and Bess (3) - down to the ground.
