I put up with Ateca 1.0 TSI test. So surprising agility in the outputs, which can even skate with relative ease its front wheels. It is also true that this compact SUV is very light (Just over 1,200 kilos), which helps the momentum of his little improper mechanics. Purring is growing, like your tummy cat came up and touch them belly. It becomes more noticeable as you gain speed, but not annoying or disturbing.
