Yes Tell, I find SEAT's have a good balance between handling and firm ride. The Ateca has a good ride on the 18's. I would have had the 19's but it was pushing my budget. I've seen your posts regarding the legroom in the front passenger side. I was actually surprised by how much room there was compared to the Leon. I prefer being in the Ateca as a passenger because the seat is higher. I feel my 6'3" frame fits reasonably well though I'm not sure about a long journeys.
