Ateca FR or SE Tech

Post by Narrowboat Tony » Tue Jan 12, 2021 6:46 pm

Hi there, I have just joined this forum as looking to buy a 2018 Seat Ateca 2.0TDI with 4 wheel drive with a manual box. I have a choice of 2 in my area and are similarly priced. One is SE Technology with 18,000 miles on the clock and priced at £200 less then a FR with 40,000 miles on the clock. Which one should i buy and why. The FR comes from a main dealer with associated benefits. The SE Tech comes from a local garage.

I have an 2018 tdi FR 4 drive. It was the only interior I liked so for me...out of those two I'd go for the FR, based on the seats but also on the fact that I intend to keep mine for 10 plus years ...so by then 110k or 130k miles won't make a huge difference to value. (Perhaps bear in mind that a low mileage diesel isn't always a good thing...I've had diesels for years and they've all just got better as the miles have added up...120k miles on a 1.4 d4d Toyota and it ran like a Swiss watch)

Rightly or wrongly, i have decided to buy the SE Tech. Picking it up Saturday so look out for lots of questions that i may have after that.
