Interior – practicality and luxury as standard
Once inside, the CUPRA Ateca’s interior exudes a combination of driver-focus, comfort and refinement, and the perception of a vehicle designed to meet the highest performance targets, while at the same time is able to carry its occupants in complete comfort.
The CUPRA logo is embossed on the floor mats, the key and the multimedia system touchscreen when the engine is started.
The door panels are upholstered in Alcantara®, with the CUPRA lettering illuminated on an aluminium plaque, standing proud on the door sills. The sports seats are also upholstered in Alcantara®, in black with copper stitching, with a carbon fibre effect covering the sides.
When cocooned in the driver’s seat, the driver will also see the copper stitching continue on the sports leather steering wheel, which also houses the CUPRA logo embossed at its centre, and gear knob. The pedals are finished in aluminium to complete the feeling of being in control of a special vehicle.
Elsewhere in the cabin, the high-end feel continues with the climate control air vent frames finished in silver or gloss black as an optional, as is the central console which houses the drive select control system and gear shifter.
Directly in front of the driver is the digital cockpit that provides information in the clearest of forms thanks to its crisp, high-resolution display, supported by the 8-inch touchscreen navigation system plus. Both of which help affirm the sense of refinement.
