If you wanted a SEAT Ateca 2.0 TDI FWD... wait sitting, because it has delayed the production

SEAT has suspended the offer of the Ateca 2.0 TDI of 150 HP FWD, either with manual change of six relations or change DSG7, due to a delay in the start of production. As stated by the manufacturer, citing the "highest priority" that grants to satisfy their customers, the reinstatement of the front-wheel drive to the model catalog is to occur... "as soon as possible".

Leaving aside that there is no clear date of restoration of normalcy in the delivery of these two versions, the SEAT has been claimed that prefers to "avoid, in a preventive way, a possible accumulation of new orders", so those of you who have an order in progress will be offered an alternative of equal or better features".

Seat Ateca

As we saw in the presentation the long-awaited SUV, the engine 2.0 TDI of 150 HP and 340 Nm with front-wheel-drive account with a few levels of consumption NEDC of 4.3 l/100 km and 4.4 l/100 km respectively for the manual and automatic versions.

An "alternative of equal or better features" could consituir the Ateca with the same block 2.0 TDI of 150 HP, but in all-wheel drive (AWD), either with manual change of six relations or DSG7, or it will be a matter of switching to petrol with the 1.4 TSI of 150 HP, available in four possible configurations, in terms of traction and transmission. Here, all versions.

Another success that could end up produced in Spain

Seat Martorell

The SEAT Ateca 2.0 TDI 150 FWD, as all the Ateca and the Škoda Kodiaq, is manufactured in the factory in the Volkswagen Group has in Kvasiny (Czech Republic). Between one and both models, the plant Czech it had to produce around 130,000 units per year, but the pace of work is not being as fast as expected in the beginning.

For its part, in the factory of SEAT in Martorell time-consuming yearning that they pass part of the production of the SUV. In fact, the SEAT Ateca was born under the sign of success: 4.000 orders and 1,500 sales were recorded over its first month of marketing, and since then the demand has not stopped growing. It would not be the first time that the good commercial performance of a model entails the transfer of production to our country.

In fact, this is somewhat reminiscent of what happened in the factory of General Motors in Figueruelas to the root of the success of the Opel Mokka. For the moment, however, Volkswagen has not hinted if it will move at least a part of the production to Spain, but will address the issue in November, when planning the future productions of each plant.
