1.5tsi or 2.0tsi

Post by matthab » Sun Dec 02, 2018 9:44 am

Shamefully taken from my thread at SeatCupra forums https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php? ... si.447948/

Hi,

Due to family requirements increasing :shock: and my Cupra near the end of its finance period we need something a little bigger. So im looking at the Ateca for the next car. Ill be honest, I will be sad to see the Cupra go as it has been a real hoot and a very capable car.

So my question is guys which engine would you order out of the 1.5/2.0?

Im leaning towards the 1.5 as its a lot cheaper and the 2.0 doesnt seem to offer much more for the money. I am aiming for the excellence lux. My commute is 2 miles with one trip to London every month, so diesel isn't really an option.

Thanks,
Matt

If you enjoyed your Cupra so much and you're sad to see it go then thought the obvious answer would be to replace it with a Cupra Ateca.

Haha while I would love one, it's out of my budget.

Aren’t there good discounts to be had? I got nearly 4K off my (not Cupra) XL lux.

Hi

It depends what you are after. If you drive normally, need no towing capabilities or the extra from 4wd, 1.5tsi is more than enough. Buy more extras for the money that you would save from a 2.0.

One more thing is a boot space. 4Drive takes quite a lot of room from the boot.
2WD Ateca has 510L. 4x4 has 485L with a repair kit, but only ~400L with a space saver wheel (required for Beats Audio).
400L is only 20L more than hatchback Cupra 5F.
So if you need bigger car for family use, forget about 2.0 and space saver wheel (and/ or Beats).
If you can live without beats and space saver, 2.0 might be a better choice (better performance, 4x4, better gearbox, better suspension, possibility to order DCC, at least on some markets). Only downside is fuel consumption, but your coming from Cupra, so shouldn't be an issue :)

Without any of the tech knowledge of other contributors I can say that I love my 2L. It drives like a dream with great performance. I just keep getting lost with the satnav!!

This was my reason for going for 2WD over AWD. Wanted diesel for the fuel eco for long journeys, got the 1.6, had the 2.0 been available in 2WD would likely have gone for it.

Can't speak for the the 1.5 but I have the 1.4tsi and it's a beaut, easy motorway cruiser and put the dsg box in sports mode and it absolutely flies ! Can't think of any reason you would go for a 2.0 unless AWD is important to you.
