Since Seat has a new AD here and some of us had been waiting till neck long long for Skoda to have an AD here... For the Kodiaq, would anyone buy the Seat Ateca if it was sold here?

 

If yes, what reasonable price would you buy it at? Here is a review from Top Gear UK...

Pricewise as long as it is cheaper than Tiguan it has a chance, but only if it doesn't skimp on equipment.

needs to be specs right.

 

If it comes with the 1.4 T or 2.0 T with all the bells and whistle. 

 

Add a good team of mechanic. under 110K @ COE of 50K. I will book one.

I'm sorry to say, they will bring in the basic spec and sell high price. And tell you metallic color need to topup.

There's an ad on the Ateca on C11 of the ST classifieds today. Looks like the AD is finally bringing it in. No mention of price though.

Yes, it's available to view in their Showroom I think. But it's bloody expensive, lowest trim starts at $150k (After promo). Who is going to pay $150k for a Seat right? AD's brain grows from its behind I think. Might as well go for Harrier Turbo for the same price.

150k basic trim only ?! Even if the Ateca was a bigger car, ppl in the right frame of mind will go for the Q2... And save lots of $...

I saw the price list. The 150k comes with 10k used car over-trade. So it's actually 140k if u don't need to over-trade.

 

But the specifications they bring in have quite a lot of extra features as compared to the basic trim I see in the UK website.. So I guess the price and OMV is higher due to that.

Yeah with Overtrade, but still that price is just too much for Seat brand in Singapore. Look at 3008 Allure priced at $122k which is reasonable. If it was priced to compete against that price range (110K-120K) then I would've considered it. But 140K for that brand? Nope. They didn't even bother to bring in the 1.0 turbo, pretty decent performance for a 1.0 engine.

Well, only time will tell if ppl are willing to buy the Seat Ateca at this price.

 

To be fair, 3008 allure's omv is 26k with 10k cevs rebate and Cat A coe.

But for Ateca Style trim, it's omv is 28k without any cevs rebate with Cat B coe.

 

Below 140k would be good though.

I think you gotta make a fair comparison to begin with.

The Peugeot 3008 comes with a 1.2L PureTech 3-cylinder engine churning out 131 horses.

3008 is FWD 6 spd auto

The Ateca comes with a 1.4L TSI 4-cylinder engine churning out 150 horses.

Ateca is 4Drive (AWD) 6spd DSG

 

Hence the price difference.

 

Again, if the 1.0L Turbo was brought in, people would've complained about how underpowered the car is.

Can't please everyone, go with whichever car catches your fancy.

Q2 1L $14x,xxx

Q2 1.4L $16x,xxx

 

Ateca 1.4L $14x,xxx

 

If you're willing to pay about $20k more for the Q2 1.4L, by all means.

But if you're talking about the same price range, you'll only be getting the 1L variant, no doubt that it's 4 Circles you're getting.

You win some, you lose some. Cheers!

Q21.0 selling @129,999, Q2 1.4 & Tiguan 1.4 should be around 150k, 10k lower than the price stated on sgCarMart,

 

 

Q2 1L $14x,xxx

Q2 1.4L $16x,xxx

 

Ateca 1.4L $14x,xxx

 

If you're willing to pay about $20k more for the Q2 1.4L, by all means.

But if you're talking about the same price range, you'll only be getting the 1L variant, no doubt that it's 4 Circles you're getting.

If only they brought in the 2wd, it will have a cevs rebate of $5000 (at least for this year). Price of 135k and below is definitely much more attractive.

They should have bring in the 1.0 version to compete with Qashqai, Kadjar & 3008. Instead they brought in 1.4 to compete with Tiguan.

Saw the car in the flesh on Sat when checking out the Leon Cupra.

Nice and good specs.

Pricing starts from $14x,xxx.

3 trims. Do not believe wholesale what one see in SG carmart.

Specs and pricing might not be accurate or updated. Some ADs will list high prices and then either give overtrade or disc.

As to whether it is "worth" it. Depends on individual.

Saw the car yesterday.

No test drive car as it is not officially launched.

Selling at SGD 140k means not much difference from the VW Tiguan. Asked SE why should I buy this over the Tiguan. SE can only tell me that it's about buying a different brand, etc.

Actually not very convinced. I think it would sell well if they bring in the 2WD 1.0l version rather than the AWD 1.4l version

very soon seat will disappear in the market again.

 

reason is plain to see for all. Obviously some people think that seat is a premium brand while its not.

 

good quality car no doubt but the marketing sucks.
