Cool.You'll see the details after I edit my profile. Ordered it mid July. Got a build date. ETA mid October.
I'm retiring my near 12 year old Altea Sport DSG TDI 140, had that one since new. OK it's another DSG, this time 4WD, 190TDI Xcellence with panoramic roof, Xcellance pack... hold on
Ateca Xcellence 4WD 190 TDI Rhodium Grey, 19", Heated Windscreen, Navigation Plus, Seat sound, Panoramic roof, Xcellence Pack, Adv Comfort & Driving pack
I worked out my power to weight ratio is increasing 40 percent between vehicles. That increase wasn't the reason to buy that model, the only 4x4 DSG in the Ateca available in the UK is that spec, so I was a bit stunned to work out six weeks later I was getting such a power boost.
Did you pick it up then? I'm not getting mine until September apparently GrrrTraded in our 14 plate Phantom Black Mk3 Leon Fr Technology which has the optional 18" alloys and ordered an Ateca Xcellence in Rodium Grey back in February, pick it up later this week. We had approx a 12 week wait, which seems about average and is earlier than dealers original estimate which was begining of June. Options ordered include raised boot floor, 19" diamond cut alloys (standard Xcellence wheels are not my cup of Tea) and top down camera.
The partners a veggie which is why I didn't want to subject them to dead animal seating but I had no option since the Xcellence in the UK isn't available in Alcantara. I think I had Alcantara in my trusty old Altea, it was man made. It was very comfortable winter and summer, buckets seats but after twelve years started to look grubby. On the other hand I reckon leather would crack over that period and look even more nasty. Father use to buy second hand police cars with leather seats, they were all cracked and mother's old leather furniture had cracked arms. I link leather is an older way of life not a modern one so I don't associate it with luxury . Fear of the roth of upsetting owners with lower cars to the Xcellence, the seating in that was really cheap. I wasn't impressed.I have leather seats in my Leon which I kind of regret since I am a vegetarian, but they told me most of it is artificial leather anyway. It came with heating so is OK in the winter but we've got some serious heats lastly and it gets nasty and sweaty easily. On the other hand seems very practical, no stains and stuff, you only use a wet napkin and all is like new. With Alcantara I've heard it's even sweatier in the summer and it starts looking bad with the time but will see. At least the only animals suffering will be me sweating over it
