The problem I had was that if I didnt close it properly the first time I would then have trouble opening it and closing it again straight away. It appears the electronic opening mechanism takes a few seconds to complete it's action and it won't shut again until it has finished.

On another note I did have a rear door that you had to shut a lot harder than the rest to full shut.

How much of this is simply down to air pressure build up in the car when the boot lid comes down? With the doors or windows open does the boot close more easily? I do have the same problem by the way.

Only had the car a few days and already driven off with boot open twice. Thought the rear camera wasn’t working at one point but was because boot not closed. Going to get dealer to look at it as sometimes takes 3 attempts to close it.

Popped back to dealer today and tried an other ateca they had and it's boot is easier to close. Mine is going back on thursday to be looked at (and get the annoying rattle in the roof fixed).

Same problem here: unless you give the boot a bit of muscle - or (better) making sure that you're applying a little downward pressure (fingertips does it) at the point of impact, you get a whirring noise and it doesn't engage properly.
If a door or window is slightly open there's no problem - not that that is a solution, more an observation...

Hi All,

Two things to remember when shutting a boot :-

Be mindful of your passengers' ear drums

Make sure you don't slam it too hard else it might break the glass

Happy motoring
