Does anyone own a 1.0 tsi SE L Ateca?

Post by Vicky_rebel » Tue Aug 28, 2018 3:35 pm

Hi

I have just bought a brand new velvet red 1.0 tsi Ateca with the SE L trim - should be picking it up in max 10 days :D

I currently drive a Citroen C4 Cactus 1.5 diesel and my MPG is around 53. What MPG can I expect from the Ateca and does anyone have any advice about this particular model/engine?

I want to get the best from this car, so look forward to hearing from you!

I don't have exact info but Autocar say 54.3 mpg on the combined cycle which is probably Seats official quoted figure. As always it will very much depend on your driving style and journey type. Less in town and traffic and near the quoted on long runs and low traffic etc. Short runs with a cold engine kill the mpg. I had an Audi A1 1.4 which would do 60 mpg on a good run so you should be fine.
The 1.0 tsi is highly rated and recognised as a very economical engine and some VW versions are now fitted with a particulate filter. I don't know if this is the case with Seat but check with your dealer.

Enjoy the car, mine won't be here until December on current info.

That doesn't sound particularly good. What sort of use will the car have, what's your typical journey?

Bear in mind Ateca is a biggish vehicle. Fast speeds will impact the MPG more than a small vehicle, as will lots of stop/start as it's a big vehicle to get moving.

We've got the same car coming - it'll be used mainly for a rural (lots of narrow country lanes) 15 mile commute. I'll be very happy if it does 40MPG.

Personally, I think it is pretty pointless speculating about what consumption you will get on a car you have yet to get. The consumption is almost entirely dependant on where and how you drive.

As I have posted before, my Ateca 1.4tsi averages 33mpg as it is used mainly on fast motorways. To put the thing into perspective, my wife drives a VW UP! with the 75hp version of the one in the Ateca - it has no turbo though, so should be pretty economical. 90% of the mileage is driving 3 miles into the nearest town via hilly roads to go shopping. Her average is 35mpg. On a 50mph long run on clear roads it will do 60mpg.

For what it is worth, my previous car was a Leon Mk3 with the 1.4tsi engine. Compared to the Ateca, under exactly the same usage conditions, it did just under 38mpg. Taking the VW figures, that means that a tiny city car with half the power of a family hatchback uses more fuel. Just shows how crazy it is trying to make sense of the quoted figures!

My 1.4 tsi is about the same, 35-38 mpg mostly local miles. Not been on a run yet.

I have the 1.0 SE and drive it on the commute and occasional long journeys.
I am getting 48MPG indicated on the long term MPG setting which is almost what I get working it out on a piece of paper (48.1) over 3000 miles

I do drive it gently as the wife is a nervous passenger.

As everyone says, it will depend how you drive it.

That's remarkably good. I'm in a 3cyl Polo today as our Tiguan is in for service. Nice easy drive 17 miles home and it showed 55mpg.

I have to say I was impressed by the 3cyl engine in the VW - you'd never have known it wasn't 4cyl. We had a 3cyl SEAT Ibiza some years ago and it was pretty horrible and juddery around town, although fine on the open road.

I have a 1.0 TSI S and on a good day can get over 60 mpg on my commute to work but more often than not it's high 40's.

Thanks everyone, I pick 'Ruby' up on Saturday so not long to wait! I do mostly short journeys with a few long distances a year, so I'm hoping to achieve an MPG in the 40's. We shall see!
