What crossover do you recommend?

I've narrowed my car choice down to two crossovers: the SEAT Ateca 1.4 (150) SE and The Volkswagen Tiguan with the same engine. I do approximately 6000 miles per year. What would you choose, or is there a better alternative to consider?

The Ateca is better value, but the Tiguan has much more upmarket looks, especially in silver. Alternatives include the Suzuki Vitara S 1.4 T BoosterJet, the Peugeot 2008 1.2 Puretech 130 6-speed and the 2017 Peugeot 3008 1.2 Puretech 130 6-speed that is European Car of the Year.
