As such, the Ateca First Edition includes things such as bi-color 18-inch alloy wheels, an electric tailgate (with “virtual pedal”), rear parking sensors plus rearview camera, as well as dark tinted rear windows. More so, the model also includes black window surrounds and roof rails, keyless entry, and a sat-nav system with an eight-inch touchscreen display. The pre-orders start in June and the first deliveries are scheduled for September 9th. The most basic Ateca is the S version which starts from £17,990, followed by the SE trim at £19,590, and the XCELLENCE at £23,905.
