The new ateca

Post by Ctugwell01 » Mon May 13, 2019 7:56 am

I have had it a month absolutely loving it only thing I don't like is how the flappy paddles don't actually let you change gear when you want

You have to put the shifter stick over to the left when drive and the paddles will work

The paddles should work in both D/S and M (Tiptronic) modes.

Picked up my new 1.5 xcellence lux DSG in Rodium Grey on 3rd May. Now done 355 miles and filled up yesterday with 99 octane super unleaded. Averaging 39 mpg. No problems with jerkiness pulling away. Finally have the digital dashboard configured how I like it. Tried out all the safety and driving assist features. Only observation is ACC slows the car if it thinks I’m undertaking. Whilst on the M25 peeling away left north towards junction 4 it thought I was undertaking the car to my right that was continuing onto the M26 coast bound and slowed me down.

Nice choice! I've also ordered a new 1.5 DSG Xcellence Lux in Rodium Grey which I should be picking up in the next week. How have you found it so far? I'm super looking forward to the driver assistance gadgets. I had 3 test drives prior to ordering but none of these had all the toys (they only had Xcellence model tops).

Also, any pictures of both inside and out? :)

Sorry for the delay replying. So far so good. Now up to 800 miles. Still nothing to fault it. My wife prefers the higher seating position and it’s less jerky than my diesel Mercedes. Not as quick off the mark at roundabouts or junctions but I expected that having driven my sons Audi A3 and adapted my driving style. The built in sat nav is a bit slow but ok for general navigation. Anything complex or time critical I use Apple CarPlay with either Waze or Google maps. I love the electric tailgate and the foot gesture was useful when unloading garden compost. Good size boot which recently managed to absorb a chicken coop. LED headlights with auto high beam and motorway setting are fantastic. Automatic emergency braking kicked in together with a visible and audible warning when it sensed a lorry was going to pull out of a lay-by onto a dual carriageway I was bowling along at doing 70 mph. AEB also helped me avoid a deer in the wee small hours(picture from dashcam shown).
