I have a 1.4 xcellence build so 34 last year so upgrade to lights. Mine stays in what ever more you put it in even after a restart.

But yours is manual, right? The problem is with the DSG box, it won't retain the Eco mode (coasting) in newer Atecas. I think the mode indicator still stays in right mode, but the gearbox resets to normal mode.

It’s a strange system. You may think it stays in the previous mode on restart but it may not activate all the options. For example, if you use the custom mode and select sport for the DSG box, when you restart, it appears to be in custom mode but the box has reverted to drive mode which you can see from the MFD. Very odd and confusing.

Hi

My Ateca is a March build this year and when you start up the radio display says its in eco and the head unit/speedo says D or S. I have mentioned this to the dealer but haven't had any feedback on a fix. You guys heard anything as I don't know if its in which mode. Only when you change the setting manually do the two coincide.

Yep, that's how it works these days, unfortunately. My gearbox retains the mode between starts, but newer ones do not. It was changed sometime during last summer, I think.

They changed this behaviour recently. Older Atecas retain the driving profile settings, newer don't.
Mine is only a month old and mine retains the setting i left it on.

Have you tried leaving it in Sport mode? That usually defaults to normal, even though the dial shows it to be in Sport mode.

Is yours manual or DSG?
