Cupra Ateca ascends to 355 HP
The folks over at Je Design have released an upgrade package for the Cupra Ateca mini-SUV. The car has gained in both performance and style.
In its production version, the Ateca SUV ships with a 2.0-liter turbo V4 engine rated at 300 hp (224 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lbft) of torque. Impressive as it already is, a simple chip tuning takes it further up to 360 hp (268 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lbft) of torque. Once finished, the ECU remap enables the Spanish compact SUV to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds (down 0.4s from series) and max out at 259 km/h (161 mph, up 12 km/h or 8 mph from series).
On the outside, you may tell the Cupra Ateca by Je Design from the others thanks to its larger wheel arches, additional bumper guards, a 30 mm (1.2”) reduction in ride height via springs, and custom wheels available in 19” and 20”, as well as two different finishes.
There’s a minor hitch, though. All purely aesthetic options alone cost the equivalent of U.S. $8,000, plus $2,280 for the chip tuning, plus installation and painting. You can actually buy a new supermini for that kind of money…
