What does "EZ" mean in the model description?

Post by Woody12 » Wed Sep 26, 2018 11:35 pm

Hi
I am in the process of ordering a new Arona SE Tech DSG. Some of them are advertised on the web as "EZ", does anyone know what that means? Is it a special build or modified SE Tech spec?
Thanks

Hi Woody, I had to ask the question when I ordered our Arona as the dealer had both in the showroom and the guy I dealt with didn't know.

It stands for EaZy, the now single spec way of ordering the Arona and all Seats I believe.

Thanks Bob - one dealer told me it meant MY19 spec cars, so I don't really think they know either! Just so long as it isn't a cut down spec version I'm OK.

I am frustrated with the whole single spec idea - why could I only get a Winter Pack on a manual diesel Lux car when I want an auto petrol version?? They seem to be making vast assumptions about their customer base and cutting out a lot of potential customers just to simplify production runs! The Seat web sites for other countries (e.g. Ireland) still seem to offer options... maybe its Brexit punishment!!

I ordered ours in August when the spec said it included the winter pack but no suede seats, it arrived with no winter pack but with suede seats. Agree with you, it makes it easier for Seat UK, not for the buyer.

My dealer told me that Seat had committed to a long term run of diesel production, which could not be stopped for some time, so were offering options, on diesels only, to shift more.

I too heard a similar version of this diesel story, stuck with excess production for time being so offering more deals to shift the excess diesels

The version I was told was that 1.6 diesel production is scheduled to continue until 2021 +/- 1 year
VW Group have (earlier in 2018) discontinued the 1.4 diesel (which was in other group models)
The proposed 1.5 diesel which was announced 2 years ago is no longer happening, development was stopped
There is insufficient capacity currently to build sufficient 1.0 tsi engines if 1.6 diesel was dropped short term

EZ or Easy option is just a word to mean - "You cannot add options" just engine and paint. It was a decision made by SEAT UK to try reduce the long wait times. Options galore on SEAT.es and SEAT.de.

As for diesel you will see it slowly return to favour, over the next 12 to 18 months never to the same level but will still be a choice for while yet for certain types of drivers.

Pertol has higher Co2 and lower NoX, derv is lower Co2 and higher NoX. Some petrol engines were lost during WLTP due to emission issues. With Euro 6.2 for diesel and mandatory SCR 'rat pee' injection. Nox has come down considerably in a diesel engine. Petrol engines have joined diesels with requiring a particulate filter so both have benefited .

However, the big pollutants and giant particulate matter as well that is rarely addressed is tyre and brake dust...

No options!!! you only get what it says on the tin for the trim level. Colour & engine/gearbox options only. e.g. if you want the digital dash you can only order a FR Sport or Ex Lux.
