Hi , welcome to the forum. It`s a good place to find information. I have had my Velvet Red FRS for three weeks and am so much happier than with my 2017 Tiguan.

What's the difference?

I'd be very interested to hear your thought on why too, please. They're fundamentally the same car and the obvious replacement for our late mk1 Tiguan is a mk2.

I do like daughter's Ateca - but that SE-L spec was a great buy at the time and couldn't be repeated.
Ateca SE-L 1.0TSi - Sept 18 - daughter's
Tiguan Match 2.0TDi 4Motion DSG - Sept 15 - wife's
Thinking about something with 7 seats to replace my old Mercedes C270CDi Estate

Despite the close DNA the Ateca handles better than the Tiguan , The LED lights are better than the adaptive leds on the Tiguan , plus the DAB radio works , Tigs notoriously bad. Then theres the looks.

My Tiguan was 2017 biturbo on Sports suspension however the Ateca is a nicer drive , I also think the visibility is better. Practicality is identical. I prefer the looks of the Ateca too. Performance wise the Petrol has noticeably less torque but revs quicker and although I was achieving over 50 mpg in the diesel Tig i have achieved 40 mpg in the 2.0 petrol Ateca so that's not bad either.
