Hey! Today I have finally made up my mind. Have grabbed me a Lava Blue 150TDI 4WD Excellence. It comes from the "second wave" of cars that reached Sweden. So it's ready to pick up on Friday or Saturday this week! (the "very happy smiley" feels needless here.........
I now have a Leon FR ST 140 TSI 2014 that leave me after 100000 km (62,000 miles?)
Greetings from Sweden

JaEr I presime it was a model already built looking for a customer rather than a factory built to order. The UK First Edition were like this. Mine will be a 4 wheel drive DSG 190 I specified all goodies except the tow bar. I gave myself £5,000 of accessories onto the base price.

Welcome to the forum! Lots of people here will be really interested in the lava blue colour, there is a lack of pictures of the Ateca in that colour. I think I may have gone for it if I hadn't decided I wanted a first edition and had my choice limited to 3.

Think the first editions are still built to order Tell. That's why broaders is getting one a few weeks earlier than me even though it's the identical 1.0 orange spec. It's treated just the same as any other spec in that regard, place your order and get a build date. I just missed the opening day first edition orders so presume I got a later build slot. They must have a set number of first editions they wanted to build across the whole of August, rather than build them all in one week. Make space for the other standard spec builds I guess. I wonder if all the 1.6 1st edition diesels have sold yet.

Probably they have a set number of regulars built which haven't got a name against them, then others with names against them. If you go off menu you have to wait a bit more. From JaEr opening text he just made his mind up and didn't really need to wait. So least in Sweden they must be bringing them in on mass not built for order. Probably standard elk avoidance cars, 4x4 TDI 150. I recall a 30 MPH crawl in winter or something like that. Elk are Moose, we all know that, they crossed over either way from Canada, and are dangerous when fruity like men... grunt alot. :).

BTW dealers still haven't updated their little plastic models with the colours coming over from Skoda. I had a look on Sunday. That blue us a Skoda colour.

Yeah. Is it called petrol blue, or used to be called petrol blue, something along those lines? Really mainly intrigued how it suits the Ateca.

Yeah for those that want to find the Skoda colour you read the code off the Seat configurator then Google that against Skoda that gives you the Skoda name. Rhodium grey is called something else in the Skoda colour. If you could pin on here we could have a mapping of the Seat ~ Yeti colours with name and code.

We saw the Lava Blue at our local SEAT dealership last Friday. They got in contact as we were considering this colour for our 2.0 Tdi 150PS Excellence. It is a lot darker in reality than the catalogue picture and as others have said, I think it is the same as the Skoda Petrol Blue.

Our Local dealer had the same colour in SE trim with few added bits. Its was only for show room apparently, they are expecting demonstrators for test drive next week. Cant wait to test drive.

Swedish retailers received late this summer two cars each that were specified by the dealership for Sweden. Launch vehicles, a TDI 190 DSG 4WD, and 150 TDI 4WD. Both with a lot of equipment and Xellence trim. The dealers have ordered a number of cars with different specifications to have any cars for sale starting in August. I had some intresting cars in my "neighborhood" that suited my wishes. Parking heater, Tow bar, Xellence trim, 150 TSI or TDI 150 was on the wish list. Fell for the color at the end.

It is difficult to compare the specifications of different trims between Sweden and UK. In Sweden, the navigation is not in the Xellence trim for example. I can post all PR codes on my car later if anyone bother to read.

A funny coincidence is that the car is manufactured on my birthday! :D
Expecting to get my car on Monday.

Found an ad on a Lava Blue Ateca. Unfortunately it seems to be difficult to show it correctly on a computer screen.

Apologize for any errors in my English.
Have a nice weekend!
(I like the idea of a "elk avoidance cars" :) )

No problems with the English JaEr. Thanks for the info.

Yes I would be interest in the PR codes. Interesting that they don't have navigation in the Xcellence in Sweden. Xcellence must mean different think in different countries. Is that they think people don't want in car navigation. I could see that if Full Link worked and navigation is a seperate module which I believe it is, the connected people wouldn't use it in any case. Navigation is left out of cheaper cars in the UK such as Fiat but you expect it in more expensive vehicles although some people moan profusely about it.

It's the First Edition in the UK that were pre specified to be built and then purchasers were matched against them. So I think unallocated cars would be shipped over and sold pretty quick if the numbers worked out like that. Best explains that one. In the mini poll all First Edition people have been given build dates whilst for all other models just 50 percent have been given build dates. I'm assuming people are updating the information when they get a build date. So those ones are more built to order.

Elks / Moose yes did have a bit of action in Canada. Partner is zoologically trained and I know about Scottish deer. So we found the spot where they congregated on the basis of foot prints and droppings. Then returned in the twillight which is when deer return to water holes at night. Yep, there, grunting over the bushes, made an orderly retreat. Never saw them in Sweden just the signs. Also stumbled over a bear, did a retreat from that as well, about 15 metres away, they are shortsighted but use scent..... wasn't looking for a bear mind you.

Thanks for the part list. I'm sure someone will tell me how to do the same.

Ateca in Sweden is more likely to get a good testing in the conditions than the UK. I'm thinking about the boot tray although extra stuff to move out if you use the lower boot space, what there is of it after the 4 wheel drive axle and spare. I do use the slipping action to pull out my chiller box for loading and unloading. So more difficult to use the chiller box. Boots for walking going in polythene bags to keep the back clean. Probably make do with the current arrangements although I did get a lot of dirt in the back on a long house clearance. I can see the advantages if alot of grubby stuff goes in the back.

I work as a spare part salesman so I have access to ETKA, that's where I dig out information. ;)

The boot area is the only place where I can find some shortcomings in Ateca so far. After the first meeting with Ateca in the showroom I miss dedicated proper storage for compressor and tire sealant / tools and warning triangle. The parts stored in a small bag. The idea is perhaps that it will be stored in one of the compartments on the sides. It is probably a sacrifice you get to do for 4wd in combination with variable cargo bay floor. Know more when the car is delivered.

I thought there was a special compartment on the top right of the boot for the triangles. There was on the Xcellence model I looked at complete with the two mandatory triangles that you must carry in Spain. .Much better than storing them under the floor as if you have a full boot it would takes ages to get to them in an emergency.

On my Leon the inflator and aerosol and tools are in a special polystyrene box where the spare wheel would be. I assume the Ateca is the same.

I've not seen the triangle storage area in the two I've seen. I wasn't convinced the first wasn't a pre production model since the top cover was very floppy, like hardboard. The LHD models doing the rounds of dealers, the one I saw had a bag in the back. Perhaps that's the bag.

In 4x4 with a skinny there is a small area around one side of the proforma plastic moulding where you could get stuff in. The VW dealer on the Tiguan said you could remove the moulding. I don't know how practical that is with the Ateca, how it's held in place etc, might ruin the subwoofer sound if that's the chamber for the speaker. That moulding on one side holds the jack etc. Think I will loose 90 percent of my understorey area in the Ateca 4x4 against the Altea as things stand.

It's not obvious unless it had the triangles in it. In Spain they have to provide two triangles with the car which is why they were in the car I looked at. Being in red containers they were fairly obvious.

They come as standard in most new cars, its a shame if it doesnt at least include one triangle. Should have kept the one i had in my Audi before i sold it last month.

You are absolutely right about the special compartment on the top right! Have found it. Hope I can come back with more pictures soon, both the new car and warning triangle!
