Keeping up with Seat’s naming tradition, the crossover is named after a village in the hear of Iberian peninsula.

The production version of the Seat Ateca mid-size crossover SUV which was previewed by a concept last year is in attendance at 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The new product¬†which is based on VW Group’s MQB platform will give the Spanish automaker access to the burgeoning SUV segment.

The Ateca follows the company’s traditional design philosophy with trapezoid grille and angular headlights (LED). The sharp bumper hosts a prominent secondary air damn and a silver skid plate. From the side, the car reminds us of the VW Taigun on which its based. The rear fascia gets angular LED taillights that compliment the headlamps, contoured tailgate and silver diffuser.
