Seat wants to address also to clients who want an SUV capable of going off-road. So the new Ateca, already demanded by a large number of Europeans, is going to offer also an extreme version. It will be called Ateca X-Perience and will be unveiled during this September Paris Motor Show. 

The normal Ateca user is going to drive for 95% of their time on asphalt (in cities, on roads and motorways) and the remaining 5% on off-road or snow. However, with the X-Perience, that proportion will be 75% normal use and 25% off-road. It aims for the customer that, above all, is going to use the Ateca off-road.

The exterior has chromed roof rails, a rear spoiler mounted above the boot, and mud flaps mounted to the rear bumper with the 4Drive and X-Perience logos placed on the boot. Additionally, a front diffuser protects the lower grille which is beautifully repeated to the rear of the Ateca X-Perience. 

Tones linked with those used on the exterior have been used in the interior too, which is illuminated by ambient-light LEDs for darker conditions. Earthy colours of coffee and green have been utilised but also orange stitching on the steering wheel, seats and the gear knob. The sport seats are, upholstered in suede leather and the X-Perience logo appears on aluminium plaques on the front doorsteps. The XP abbreviation is also present on the steering wheel, and upon opening the boot, there is a chrome strip on the boot floor just as the current Leon X-perience has. 

The X-Perience uses a 4Drive traction system that is present in the Seat Ateca range. Thanks to the Haldex clutch system, the torque distribution between both axles is done. Furthermore, the advanced traction control system XDS ensures each wheel receives the necessary power.

Moving onto the power unit, the chosen engine is the 190 horsepower 2.0 TDI with 400 Nm of maximum torque, linked up to the dual-clutch 7-speed paddle-shift DSG. 

The Ateca X-Perience always relies on Traffic Jam Assist coordinates the work of the Lane Departure Warning Assist and the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system. Front Assist works as an emergency brake that recognises vehicles and pedestrians, as well as the traffic sign recognition system, with blind spot detection and rear traffic alert, a 360º camera with birds-eye view, parking assist for parallel parking or angle parking, emergency assist, a high-beam assist.
