Variable Floor Boot

Post by matt_henn » Sun Jan 20, 2019 12:03 pm

Hello,

I'm looking at getting an Ateca FR to replace my Leon ST. The Leon has the really handy variable floor boot which I need to be able to use my dog cage. When I looked at the dealers the Ateca didn't have this and the brochure and online configurator make no mention of it. I did ask the sales staff but as is often the case no more use than a chocolate teapot.

Forums searches seem to show it used to be an option so any idea where it went?

Can’t answer your question about the configuator but I have a 68 plate 2 Wheel Drive FR with variable floor my understanding is you cannot have it with the 4 Wheel Drive versions Hope this helps

Not available on the new EZ structure. Still possible to fit one if you find one.

Not possible if you have four wheel drive.

Was the variable floor option removed for WLTP? And what changed?... presumably not the physical shape of the boot. Perhaps this is about weight?

It's all about Seat UK making it easy for themselves, not you, the customers.
It's still available on other markets as the option.
Also it can be ordered/ fitted to 4WD as long as you have repair kit. Only 4WD with space saver wheel makes it impossible to fit one.

While I agree, many manufacturers are now going this way. What anoys me is the options we don't get in the UK, seat sound and dcc for example.

I know many manufacturers are going this way. It's just that in case of Seat i know it's not the case at least on some markets.
In Poland for example one can still configure the car, just as before WLTP. So you can still have "tailor made" car, with options you want. And variable boot floor is one of them. Unfortunately it's not possible in UK.

I have 4drive and a variable floor. My Ateca didn't have the variable floor but I managed to source a floor and the two guide brackets from a car breaker. £75 for floor and brackets included delivery too.

I think the main reason is to make cars more easily available so you don't have to wait 6 months.

Cars are sold like this in the US - dealers keep loads in stock, very few options (those that there are, are often in packs). You drive in with your old car, buy a new one, and drive it out same day.
