It’s not all that uncommon for a company to be selling the same car with two different badges, but that usually happens when the said vehicle is sold in one country with the badge X and in another with the badge Y. In the case of the Ateca, the story is a bit unusual as you can buy it as a SEAT or as a Cupra in the same country. It will be a similar story with the fourth-generation Leon once the Cupra variant introduced yesterday will go on sale by late 2020.
Seen here is the SEAT-badged variant of the compact crossover while testing alongside its bigger brother, the Tarraco. The two were spotted up close in northern Europe where Spain’s Volkswagen Tiguan is preparing for its mid-cycle update due to come out likely in the following months. Even though there’s plenty of camouflage at the front, we can observe the new pattern of the grille and the redesigned bumper that no longer incorporates the fog lights.
