Behind The Scenes For The CUPRA Ateca & SEAT Leon CUPRA

Behind the scenes with the SEAT Leon CUPRA and CUPRA Ateca

This month we went behind the scenes for our latest car reviews for the sporty performance CUPRA Ateca and the SEAT Leon CUPRA…

When we organise a behind the scenes review day we will always select two cars to film throughout the day; one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. For this filming day we chose the sporty models from Pulman SEAT; the CUPRA Ateca and the SEAT Leon CUPRA.

CUPRA Ateca

We took the CUPRA Ateca out for filming first in the morning and decided to take the SUV to Herrington Park and the roads around the back of Penshaw Monument near Offerton, as these areas would really showcase the sporty feel of the CUPRA brand. Thankfully the weather stayed dry for us although prediction suggested rain and just as we were finishing up the sun came out! Read a little more below about the CUPRA Ateca.

It really is an SUV where performance meets style, reaching speeds of 60mph in just 5.2 seconds from a 2.0 litre turbocharged 296bhp engine! To look at, the CUPRA Ateca offers a pair of twin exhaust pipes, rear spoiler, dark tinted rear windows, metallic paint as standard and much more!

The CUPRA Ateca really is a fantastic drive and the specification, even on the standard trim, is fully loaded for safety and entertainment. Standard specification includes Smartphone Integration, Air Conditioning, Satellite Navigation, Rear View Camera, DAB Digital Radio and a 360 Degree Surround Camera to name just a few of the features!

SEAT Leon CUPRA

In the afternoon we decided to take the SEAT Leon CUPRA around the Souter Lighthouse in Marsden near Sunderland. We chose this location as our car reviews always try to include well-known landmarks from the areas our sites are based in or around. Unfortunately, the weather predictions caught up with us and we were greeted with rain and wind coming straight from the North Sea! Let’s find out more about the Leon CUPRA below!

The Leon CUPRA really does make heads turn with its high performance look and attractive 19” ‘CUPRA Machined’ alloy wheels along with a uniquely styled front grille and pair of twin exhaust pipes. Step inside and the Leon CUPRA is loaded with technological features as standard which include Satellite Navigation, Full Link Smartphone Integration, Rear View Camera, Front Sports Seats and Suspension, DAB Radio and much more!

Volkswagen, SEAT and SKODA Drive into 2019 as WhatCar? Winners

It’s that time of year again, it’s What Car? Award season! There’s no bigger prize than a win at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards. This year we are incredibly proud to announce that we have won a whole host of awards! Let’s see who scooped first prize…

SKODA

The SKODA winning streak has continued as we drive into 2019 with two WhatCar? category wins and four price point victories – that’s an impressive six accolades! The SKODA Octavia was crowned ‘Family Car of the Year’ and the SKODA Superb was awarded ‘Estate Car of the Year’ for the fourth year in a row. Last, but not least, the Superb, Karoq, Citigo and Fabia also went on to win a price point award!

Here’s what Ian Jarvis, SKODA Sales Manager had to say:

“Winning a What Car? Car of the Year Award is the biggest accolade a car and car maker can get. SKODA cars are dynamic, interesting and simply clever – coupled with the Pulman fantastic customer experience, owning a SKODA just got even better!

SEAT

SKODA was not the only winner on the night. Two SEAT models have also claimed top category honours in the What Car? Awards 2019. The CUPRA Ateca won sports SUV of the year and the SEAT Arona won small SUV of the year (for the second consecutive year) at the What Car? Awards in London.

Alex Paget, SEAT site manager, said

“To be recognised by industry experts for our SUV models is fantastic, we are incredibly proud that SEAT and CUPRA were crowned winners at the 2019 WhatCar? Awards. We knew that the CUPRA Ateca was going to be a spectacular car, but when it was delivered to site we couldn’t wait to get it out on the road. The CUPRA Ateca is ready and waiting to hit the roads of Sunderland – why not pop along to Pulman SEAT for a test drive?”

Volkswagen

Volkswagen might of been late to the pick-up party when it launched the Amarok in 2010, but it was worth the wait! This year the Amarock was crowned overall winner in the Pick-up of the Year category.

Here’s what Keith Ramshaw, our Volkswagen Sales Manager had to say:

The Volkswagen Amarock is a fantastic car, and my go-to demonstrator all year round. It truly is a truck you can use every day, from a weekend away, to a trip to the supermarket! Our SKODA showroom in Belmont Industrial Estate deals with all our used Commercial Vehicle stock – make sure you check out our website!
