Re: Petrol engine - 1.5 TSI EVO 150PS

I test drove and ordered a 1.4TSI DSG Ateca. I test drove it over my normal daily commute journey and it returned in excess of 30mpg in ‘Normal’. However, when the car was delivered it unexpectedly turned up with the 1.5TSI engine. I test drove the 1.5TSI in the Skoda Karoq and it was one of the rea...

Re: Is Seat Ateca bigger than Škoda Karoq?

I'm comparing the Focus boot floor area with that of the Ateca. I could get more on the floor in the Focus than in my Ateca. If you take the height into consideration, then the Ateca volume is much larger but often you need floor space rather than height. I read all of the boot space figures prior t...

Re: Is Seat Ateca bigger than Škoda Karoq?

No, I had a 5 door hatchback Focus. I have to carry some kit around in the boot for work and with it all installed in the Focus I still had room for other bits & pieces, which I don't in the Ateca. I should point out that I have the level floor option in the Ateca that reduces the height a bit. The ...

Re: Is Seat Ateca bigger than Škoda Karoq?

I agree with Fred99. I test drove both and the Ateca was the more entertaining drive, though that was with the now defunct 1.4TSI engine over the 1.5TSI in the Karoq. One thing I would say is that if you are a rear seat passenger the Karoq is a slightly nicer place to be due to the clever rear seat ...

Re: Anyone had a missing rear view camera fitted by the dealer yet?

So, having spoken to a customer services manager at SEAT UK she informed me that of the cameras they've tried to install via the dealer network around 70% have been successful. Unfortunately, they can't tell me what the common denominator is in the ones that failed, so they admit they don't know if ...

Re: Anyone had a missing rear view camera fitted by the dealer yet?

I understand anyone missing a rear view camera was going to receive a hamper from SEAT anyway. At least that's what my dealer, who now seems difficult to get hold of, told me.

Re: New Owner of FR Ateca DSG..Have a question!

At the present time yes. I did hit 33MPG today for the first time (well actually my wife did - damn!).
Bit miffed anyway as I ordered the car with the 1.4TSI and it was delivered with the 1.5TSI with no prior warning from the dealer.

Anyone had a missing rear view camera fitted by the dealer yet?

I ordered an FR model in June, which should have come with the 1.4 TSI engine and a reversing camera. Sadly, with no prior warning it got delivered in December with the 1.5 TSI and no rear camera. I know that SEAT have agreed to fit the missing rear view cameras via UK dealers, so I'm just wondering...

Re: New Owner of FR Ateca DSG..Have a question!

Had my Ateca 1.5 DSG FR for a month and done about 300 miles. The best MPG I've seen was 31 but usually substantially less. I've noticed that if you use the 'from start' option then on cold start the mpg is quite alarmingly low but gradually settles to high 20s around town after about 10-15 minutes....

Re: Is FR lowered?

I've just (this week) taken delivery of an FR on 19" rims. Was a little concerned about the ride firmness prior to delivery but it's fine over most road surfaces. If anyone is worried about going from the 18" rims to 19" I wouldn't be put off. I don't believe the suspension is any lower than on othe...
