Hi all. So we finally collected our new Ateca FR sport 1.5tsi DSG yesterday and have to say the whole handover was excellent. We pulled into the dealer and was pointed where to park and then directed straight into the new vehicle where we waited for a few mins while they checked over our returned Ateca and I checked over the new one. They then called us on my mobile to do the AP and the pin over the phone and to explain anything we didn’t understand about the car. In and out in 15mins. Very happy indeed with snows SEAT Portsmouth. The car itself is amazing. Handing back a pre face lift 2020 manual FR and exchanging for a 2021 dsg FR Sport I didn’t expect that much difference but I was very very wrong. It just feels so classy inside. The electric heated leather drivers seat is one of the best I have driven in especially as it can be put in the perfect position and had a memory function. The updated 9.2in infotainment screen is excellent quality but a bit fiddly to begin with. The 10.25in digital cockpit can be personalised in a few different ways and looks brilliant especially at night. Plenty of room in the back for our 3 young children as well. The keyless entry is 100% reliable but the keyless locking is hit but mainly miss but the start/stop button looks very cool pulsating in red. But the best bit has to be the engine/dsg gearbox combination. It works so well and it’s very quiet. It seems to make a lot less noise than the manual even though they are exactly the same 1.5 engine. Obviously being brand new and under 100 miles I haven’t driven it hard but it seems so much quicker than the manual and the throttle definitely responds a lot faster. Overall very very happy with it and for £1099 AP (we got a £199 discount) I don’t think we could have got anything better. Pictures tomorrow if anyone is interested 😁
