Our Verdict

Seat Ateca

Can Seat’s first SUV impress, even with the heavy burden of expectation?

Join the debate


14 April 2017
The Jaguar I-Pace is probably the most interesting car in the UK this year. The first evidence of the seismic shift that Tesla is creating in the market, but also a great symbol of the energy and foresight of the Jaguar team. Maybe it will be better than the Model X?

Globally the Tesla Model 3 will be the big news IMHO.

Looking forward, it will be fascinating to see how Porsche transitions the 911, one of the most iconic vehicles ever, to hybrid power.

24 June 2017
Don't forget.. the All-New Rolls Royce Phantom 8 should be added. It is being revealed at a special event in Mayfair, London. Date: 27 7 2017. Regards Stuart Burden
