Just a heads up to anyone looking to buy. The Specs across the new Ateca range have changed compared to the first brochure released. Sadly the FR sport has lost some key features in my opinion.

I worked throu the Skoda configurator on the Envag iV (electric SUV) and noted they were selling them like Seat used to do with all the optional equipment. That's my beef with Seat now is that you can't spec up the options so I'd never replace what I bought in 2016 which was sold the old way. Mind you I did get to £50,000 on the Skoda site. £35,000 with what I bought in 2016 in the Ateca, less tow bar.

Still get more years out of what I've got.

TSR was in the early specs but it didn't make sense since it didn't have lane assist I recall.... you have to be an expert of VAG systems to spot publishing errors 😄.

I guess that's the problem with selling them as packages rather than packages with options. You know if an option is in the package or not since its been unbundled out. No optional options in the package and it's down to whether it's published correctly.

Yeah I was set on the FR Sport as it had digital cockpit, side and exit assist and electric tailgate and a few other things. I am going into a dealer next week to work on a deal for it so I thought I'll double check the spec on the brochure and thank god I did as now the FR sport doesnt have side and exit assist or electric tailgate. So I am now thinking xperience lux as it has everything and more than I wanted for not much extra monthly cost. Minor gripe is I love the FR styling but the xperience lux doesnt look bad either just not sporty looking.

Happy to say that I placed an order today for a new Ateca Xperience Lux 1.5 Petrol DSG in Nevada white. Dealer has been able to get their hands on a model that is currently in transit so hopefully I'll have it start of november!
