Here's my Cupra

Post by C3ptik » Sun Dec 23, 2018 10:19 pm

Thought i'd drop in and post some photos of my Cupra Ateca. Picked her up 5th Dec 2018 and love her to bits!
I had an Ateca Xcellence in Black Magic beforehand and traded it in for a fully loaded Black Cupra version.

Hope you like and please do not hesitate to ask anything if you have any questions on the new model. I was told I was possibly one of the first 5 in the country to register one. :D

Very nice C3ptik - looks the business.

Would be interesting to hear your initial driving thoughts about it ie have you found a favoured driving setting yet + how do you feel it corners, handles not so smooth roads etc.

Congrats on getting one already + long may you enjoy it 👍

Still in two minds over the copper wheels on the design pack,however against the black magic finish it works really well.
Would be interested in your thoughts on the standard seats.I really like the look of the buckets, but £1600 is a high cost option...
I think deals at this stage are few and far between,but did you manage anything over and above what’s generally available?
Enjoy btw!

Looks really good I’m looking at getting rid of mine for one but am seeing what the dealer can come up with price wise.
Be interested in your actual fuel consumption and thoughts on the drive/ power delivery.
Did you get the sound pack as I’d be interested to know your thoughts on the quality of the sound

I have a set of these wheels in black from my other SEAT. I'm tempted to fit them to my humble Black Magic SE (black rails and mouldings) next spring. 35 profile tyres so I'll have to be careful. Might just fool someone but for me it's just a way to use up the OE Contis which I want to change for something like Mich PS4S (which are more suited to Cupras).

Car looks lovely btw.

Very nice, where did you purchase if you don't mind me asking?

Sorry but doesn't do anything for me. Seat Ateca is very compeditive, perhaps even still the best in it's market place, but if I'm spending that sort of money on a car it wouldn't even make my top 20. To these eyes, the Cupra just looks like any other Ateca who's owner spent a few hours in Halfords end of season sale. As for performance... it doesn't matter how much they fiddle with the engine and mechanics - you can't overcome gravity.

That said I saw a brand new red FR model in town this afternoon (an early Christmas present for someone no doubt) and I was equally unimpressed. Like the Cupra, there's nothing to break up the side profile therefore car looked taller but slimmer than other Atecas - proportions were all wrong to these eyes. To be honest I had to take a double take because I thought it was an Arona at first.

I agree with you. If I wished to spend near £40k there are a lot of options out there, especially if you up the price a bit.

As for the Fr, I can’t see the point. Same performance as the others, no significant advantages apart from a naf badge which no one apart from a SEAT owner would recogise. As you say, without the black panels to break it up a bit it looks like a van, especially when it’s a white one - that needs a MrWhippy sign on it!

I think it looks great. As a rule, I don't take comments seriously about what "I would spend £40K on" from people who obviously haven't got £40K to spend.

You’re right, I haven’t got 40k to spend, mainly because I spent 60k in the last two years on two new cars - cash not some wierd financed deal!
