Ibiza to Arona

Post by maisiedormouse » Fri Jan 26, 2018 9:42 am

My hubbie and I are trading in our 15 plate Ibiza FR Black Edition for a Arona Xcellence Lux, monsoon grey with a black roof. We ordered the car early January and were given a rough build time of 12 weeks. We havent heard back from our dealer yet so I am going to chase to see if they have a build week yet. How soon did everyone else get their build date after ordering

I hate to think how long I’ll have to wait for my FR ..
Ordered it 2 week ago and was told 12-14 week wait 😱 so I guess 6 weeks for build date and then 6 weeks after for delivery .. ?
Will be well worth the wait tho

Ordered an Xcellence Lux DSG in grey with orange roof back in mid November was told rough 9-12 weeks build time, contacted dealer to ask for an update in early Jan, he looked on system whilst on the phone and still nothing confirmed so still waiting 😗. To be honest later the better as may stand a small chance of having Alexa software installed or even better virtual cockpit... that’s maybe pushing it a bit though. Lol

I wonder if the Alexa is something that can be retro fitted via a software update. I would have thought the rest of the equipment needed will already be installed with voice activation.

The virtual cockpit is a £400 option on the Ateca, you definitively won't get it unless you spec it through a dealer when it becomes available!

It can't be retro fitted via a software update. I read on a forum over on seatcupra.net (I think it's on the Ateca thread) that the Alexa system needs a Wi-Fi module that will be pre-installed on Ateca's from a certain date onward. (I'm guessing that the infotainment system might be slightly different because of this.)

I wonder if a wifi dongle plugged into USB would get round this.

Hello All,
I ordered mine on the 8th Dec.
My dealers been very communicitave with me.
He called the 4th Jan, to say that the order is in the system.
It would be leaving the factory during week 5 (29th Jan - 2nd Feb).
So it was build last week.
It should arrive in the UK and then be at the dealers he hopes for the 26th/27th Feb.
Mine on the 1st March.
I've gone for Red body and Black roof.
Arona FR, Desire Red with Black roof, and spare wheel
