According to the owners manual, Traffic Assist is for highways only and itís an extension of ACC that can fully stop the car and then accelerate again. And they strongly advise against using it in city driving. Based on that I decided itís not worth it but might be wrong. My understanding is ACC can also fully stop the car but then you need to restart and accelerate yourself with the pedal which is what Traffic Assist does for you. Also my understanding is Traffic Assist uses the lane markings to keep the car within the lane for total hands free operation, however I might be wrong about that too.

I've got it but don't use it. I think you have to tickle the accelerator to get it to move off again. I tried it on a motorway queue in Germany and it didnt start off again after coming to a stop. I prefer to drive the car myself.

My other experience was when it hurtled into a down hill into a roundabout taking the speed off the cars in front e.g. too fast. Then of course a roundabout, lack of road markings for lane assist and I put corrective steering on myself so I didn't go over the top of the roundabout . I know youngsters like ACC and traffic assist so they can tailgate, downside stone chips and windscreen repairs with alignment.

I think if you were doing a lot of motorway driving it may be handy in tail backs and you would get use to the everyday use of it. I would agree its more for motorways and straight sections of roads in cities at slow speed. Driving with lane assist on can be fun but on UK roads you want to pick your path through potholes so you end up wrestling with the wheel, it goes firm when it's steering itself. Some guy on the misery board dissed the 19" wheels as tram lining for months and said they were rubbish repeatedly but in fact the test car they drove had lane assist on, which gave the feeling that it was tram lining . They did admit after months of dissing the handling of 18" v 19" once they got their own car and realised the sensation they had experienced with lane assist doing the steering.

It is nice in rhodium grey it starts to resemble a Q5 in a similar colour. Spent a long time looking at colours before I got the Ateca but kept coming back to rhodium grey after seeing the Q5s in a similar colour round here.
