I had an Ibizia Sport - that came by default with 17" rims (just wanted a specific engine in manual so didn't have a choice). Compared to that the Ateca is a much softer ride 8-), but the 1.4TSi compared to my Ibiza's 1.2TSi is oh so much better. Still getting used to parking in the garage with the added width - about 10cm margin for error, so quite tight!

A Porsche Cayenne. We decided to buy a larger house donan obvious way to cut costs was the car. I’ve been surprisingly very leased with the Ateca, to the point where I wonder if the Porsche really is worth over twice as much. The main things I miss are the seats, the air suspension and the BOSE hifi (SEAT Sound is good but doesn’t really compare to BOSE). At first I also missed the power but I’ve got used to it. What will I do in three years time? I’ll think very hard about whether a new Cay ne really is worth £40,000 more than an Ateca.

I had a Peugeot 5008 1.6 diesel auto. I quite liked it but my wife never took to it. Previously I had 2 x Citroen C4 grand picasso again both diesel autos. The reason I like Peugeot and Citroen diesels is that the DPFs cleaned themselves with some kind of cleaner rather than relying on the heat of the engine to burn off the soot. We drove all of these almost always around town mainly shortish journeys and never had a DPF issue. Then I heard that they switched to the 'other kind' of DPF so decided to move away from diesels.
I like the Ateca 1.4 Petrol DSG. There isn't quite as much room in the boot and I think it's slightly narrower which is a bit of a squeeze for 3 in the back. That's really the only negative thing I have to say about the Ateca. It's very nippy with the turbo and is comfortable and I think very stylish. So overall I am please I switched brands.

Currently driving Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.0 EcoBoost. It’s seen me alright. Few niggles and complaints (notably MPG claims were/are WAYYY off) but they’re mostly material rather than performance based.

I actually considered a Seat Ibiza but the Fiesta won out because it was nearly £60 cheaper a month for a nearly top trim. May seem small and trivial but that’s my phone costs or food costs and back then it made the difference.

Before that was another Ford Fiesta LX 1.4 (a really terrible run around but it had character) and before that Canadian cars you’ve probably never heard of! :lol:
