tbh the FWD Ateca corners securely and doesn’t roll too much when you throw it through roundabouts and the like
This is what is holding me back from further Ateca consideration.Does anyone know when the 1.5 TSI engine will be available in the Ateca to replace the 1.4 unit ? I see that the 1.5 engine will be an option in the new Ibiza announced today. I believe that waiting times for the 1.4 engine models are lengthy. Is it likely that Seat will just upgrade the spec or will we have to wait for an Ateca Mk 2 in a couple of years or so ? If VAG is interested in cost savings I cannot see the merit in producing both the old and new engines. Thanks
Granted but from VW's point of view I cannot see how it can be economic to produce both formats unless they are sourced from different regions / countries. There is clearly not a stockpile of the 1.4 version to be used up.Judging by the road tests of the new Golf with the 1.5 engines, the performance is identical and the improvement in economy/CO2 is not significant.
