Lux 2.0 TSI 4Drive Petrol

Post by Althered » Wed Jan 20, 2021 9:21 pm

This engine appears to have been removed from Seat`s online configurator. It cannot be selected as an option. Anyone know why ?

Because SEAT UK have decided they don’t want to sell it any more. Nothing more sinister than that.

I ordered 2.0 tsi 4 drive 16 weeks ago today.I havnt been given a build date yet.Starting to get annoyed by Seat. They have not phoned me once to let me no what's going on very poor Service. I emailed Seat Uk before Xmas they told me there were no delays on that model only difference was Dealer told me 12-16 weeks Seat UK said 24 weeks. I think I'll cancel and get my deposit back

Having waited the bulk of the time and with 8 weeks to go you might want to hang on as you'll have one of the last 2.0L which may help it's resale value in the future.

The long wait time is a concern. My dealer is adamant that my order will be 12-14 weeks. I phoned him today and asked why the 4wd TSI 2.0 had been removed from the configurator and he did not know that it had. He phoned Seat and they said that particular engine is having an update , something to do with emissions, and it`s removal is only temporary and it will be back. Hopefully soon, but who knows....

I think this is a good point. I purchased my 2.0TDI 190PS 4Drive Ateca back in July and its estimated resale value (trade and private) on Autotrader has been slowly increasing since then (it currently says it's worth more part ex than I paid for it 6 months ago!). I'm assuming it's perhaps a combination of demand, lower than expected mileage etc. but also that the 190PS diesel engine is no longer available. There's only ever 1 or 2 on autotrader, so it seems to be a rare engine to get hold of.

I placed my order for an Xperience Lux 2.0 TSI on the 8th December through Lex Autolease..... speaking to them, SEAT are apparently testing that engine against the new emission regs that came in on the 1st Jan. There may be a delay due to this. Was initally told March for delivery.... who knows now!

My order/enquiry into the Lux 2.0 TSI 4Drive has ended and I am now looking at the Lux 1.5 TSI 2wd. I am dissapointed but 4wd is not really essential. No plan to off road but I get very nervous in winter when it snows. What are these Ateca`s like in the snow? Do the 19 inch wheels help? At least I`ll save a few bob and likely get it in the next fortnight as against 3-6 months with a factory build!

If you're going to be driving in the snow.... then a smaller wheel is better. Although it sounds odd, a narrower winter tyre will give much better traction than say a 19" low profile. I'd consider having a set of winter wheels/tyres if I was going to be doing alot of driving in snowy or icy conditions.
