Hello from Romania

Post by semake » Sat Sep 07, 2019 1:12 pm

Hey everyone!

I've placed an order on 29.03.2019 and hopefully by this time next week I should be in possession of a brand new Seat Ateca FR 1.5 TSI DSG. I've also added Park Assist, Virtual Cockpit, Winter Pack and a couple of other small extras. It's a MY 2020 model and comes with a frameless rear view mirror, upgraded Virtual Cockpit software, the infotainment now has capacitive buttons and some small improvements to the engine (whatever that means).

Been reading the forums about the dreaded kangaroo issue, and popped the question to my local dealer. He said he has no idea what I'm talking about and hasn't received any complaints regarding this issue nor the lack of power in 2nd gear. I'll just have to wait and see I guess, I'm gonna let you guys know after I'll drive the car for a fair bit.

Got a few picturs of the car from my dealer yesterday, but they're not the best. I'll post more once I pick up the car, cheers!

Multimedia buttons are gone (
But I guess it's a higher resolution screen.

Congrats. Rear badges looks like colour coded but it is covered with tape used in transporting. I take it is navada white?

Thanks guys!

@TheGrey: The waiting is the worst, don't know exactly how long it takes in the UK, but almost 6 months is a lot. I heard there were waiting periods of up to 11 months when the car was first launched.

@vectra: I don't really know how it looked before, I only know what the dealer told me, that the layout has seen some small changes. Its worth talking to your dealer, as it looks to be software related.

@Sash: For me, it looks much cleaner without the buttons, but I guess it comes down to personal preference. It's going to take some getting used to, expecially while driving. I expect the resolution to be higher, yes.

@wazza: Yes, its Nevada White. Initially went for the old black color (can't remember the name), but that was changed to Crystal Black but it was an extra 300 euros which I didn't think it was worth it at the time.

It's a shame they kept the two knobs either side of the screen, they look out of place now. AND the power symbol still rotates with the volume knob.

Two drawbacks of the new design is my OCD is going to be on overdrive constantly cleaning the screen and lining up the power symbol all the time :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just copy the RR design for the hub cap which rotates freely and always shows the RR logo in the correct orientation when the wheels are rotating.
