vw adaptive cruise control dsg Q&A Review

How do you drive an automatic car in a traffic jam?

I agree totally with Julian. Just this afternoon i was driving home on the highway (in Sweden) and stupid as I was, I didn’t respond to Waze’s tips on heavy traffic ahead. But with an automatic (or in reality a DSG double clutch gearbox which I have) it’s really comfortable driving in a traffic jam. If it goes really slow I only use the brake pedal, otherwise a little pressure on the gas pedal is enough. I always keep a healthy distance to the cars in front of me. Actually, if I wanted to, I could turn on the adaptive cruise control, which on my car (a 2020 VW Touran) works in any speed from 0 to 160 kph, so even in traffic jams where the speed can go down to zero.

What car do you drive and why is it your first choice?

I drive a 2018 Seat Ateca. In October of 2017 I retired and my wife and I moved from the Austin, Texas area to the Valencia province of Spain. My previous two cars had been Volkswagens, a 2013 Passat diesel and then a 2016 GTI. I was pretty happy with both of them and decided that I would get another VW when I came to Europe. Doing my homework I discovered Seat, which is a Spanish brand that is a member of the Volkswagen group. (Think of Seats as VWs in Spanish clothing.) With gasoline at about $6 a gallon fuel efficiency became important. I wanted a car that would handle well, is enjoyable on long drives (we plan to tour Europe), looks good, has a decent carrying capacity and provides electronic assistance for parking in tight European spaces. I was also trying to keep the price below $35k. My wife doesn’t drive a stick so I needed an automatic. The Seat Ateca is a crossover suv based on the Golf/Leon. It sits higher than those models and has an improved carrying capacity. The Ateca was released in 2016 and immediately won a number of awards for best in class. I was still in the US when I decided on an Ateca so I went to Seat’s web site and had one built to my specs. I started out with the high end Xcellence model and added a bunch of goodies including premium sound system, leather interior, topview camera, parking sensors, led headlights, adaptive cruise control and some other safety features. I thought long and hard about whether or not to get a gasoline or diesel engine. I like diesels but a number of European cities are talking about banning them so I went for the VW 1.4L turbo and 7 speed DSG automatic. It makes 150 horsepower and has strong torque all the way down to 1,400 rpm. This makes it very drivable. The engine is exceptionally quiet and smooth for a four cylinder. I’m averaging about 35 US mpg. While it’s not as economical as a diesel it costs about 2,200 € less. By my calculations a 2L diesel wouldn’t start saving me money until 120,000 miles. I’m quite pleased with my Ateca. I think it has a good balance between tight handling and a comfortable ride. The sound system is great. The car is smooth and quiet at freeway speeds and I think it’s good looking. Since I had my Ateca built to spec I paid full retail, about 32,500 €. I could have saved some money but a lesson I learned long ago is that if one is going to spend many hours in a car it’s better to spend a little more and get what what you want rather than spending those hours thinking about what you should have ordered. Here’s some pics.

What Model of Car would you drive for the rest of your life?

I took about 2 seconds to decide which car I'd happily drive for the rest of my life: ,MK7 Golf R. We already owned a MK6 GTi when we looked at the new Golf R, and the second we pushed the start button on our test drive, I was sold. The sound is just gorgeous. Firstly, the power is ,insane,. The DSG really makes this car phenomenally quick. If I could quote from ,What is a DSG (direct-shift gearbox)? How does it function? A bit of statistical comparison: The DSG takes only about 8 milliseconds to upshift in comparison, the sequential manual transmission in the Ferrai 430 SF takes 60 milliseconds to shift, or 150 milliseconds in the Ferrari Enzo. The quoted time for upshifts is the time the wheels are completely non-powered. Golf R has many different performance modes, such as ,normal,, ,comfort,, ,ECO,, ,race,, and ,custom, mode. When the car is in race mode [the most fun, and the one we drive around in all the time] makes the suspension harder, the car is louder and a lot quicker [think ,Cheetah,]. But at the push of a button, and you're in 'comfort' mode and the car is as quiet as a ,kitten,! The ride is so smooth, and so quiet, you can hardly believe it's the same car. ECO mode preserves fuel and uses barely more than the Golf TSi [incredible] in fact, it uses less fuel than our other car, the 2014 Corolla! The adaptive cruise control is the ,best, on the highway, just set and forget about it. The emergency breaking has also saved our lives on more than one occasion. It's the little things that I also really enjoy, such as: The soft lighting in the foot wells, and blue LED strip lighting on the doors The headlights turn around corners, and they illuminate as soon as you indicate or start turning around a corner. You then have a 90 degree angle of light following your around the corner. I laughed at this feature until I drove at night time with it. Now when I drive our other car that doesn't have this feature, I really miss it. The passenger side mirror dips as you are reverse parking [so you can see the curb and you don't scratch your wheels. As soon as you put the car into reverse the volume on your music is lowered until you put the car into park. Hooks in the boot for your shopping bags. Admittedly, the GTi had a deeper boot and so bags hung better, but I guess that's the sacrifice you make for the all wheel drive. There are lots of other features, but I've just listed my favourites. The Golf R is really fun to drive, and it's almost impossible to push the limits of; it sticks to the road like no other. It parks like a dream, and there is actually quite a lot of space when you fold the seats flat in the back. There is nothing else I could want from a car. Arguably the best part of this car, is that you get someone pull up next to you at the lights, and they think 'oh, it's "just a Golf".. and boom, they're in your rear view before you know it. The look on their faces is, priceless,! No, I don't work for VW. I just really love this car!

As a European, what is your daily driver?

A 2018 Seat Ateca Xcellence, loaded. 150 hp 1.4, DSG, leather, 10 speakers, top view camera, adaptive cruise control, LEDs, range sensors on all corners. It’s a nice car. Adequate power, cruises well at speed, good handling, averages 35 mpg. Seat is a member of the VW group.

Why did you choose the car you're driving now?

My previous two cars (in the US) were VWs. I had a Passat with the TDi diesel and after VW made me an offer for it that I couldn’t refuse I got a Golf GTI Autobahn. When I moved to Spain I had to be more practical than in the US. Economy is important with gasoline at $5.50+ a gallon and I needed better carrying capacity than my GTI had. There were other considerations. Parking can be difficult and in a city pedestrians can hop out in front of a car without looking. I was also trying to avoid spending too much money on a car. I still liked VWs but in Spain they are more of a premium manufacture. However Seat (,Sociedad Española de Automóviles de Turismo,) is a member of the Volkswagen group and a Seat model is generally a better looking and less expensive than the equivalent VW model. The Seat Ateca is a crossover SUV that had been getting great reviews and looked like it would be just about perfect. So before I left the US I went to the Seat web site and configured one to meet my needs. I keep it plain on the outside so as to not draw attention from thieves but ordered all the goodies on the inside - leather, 10 speaker sound system, adaptive cruise control, top-view cameras etc. I chose the 150 hp 1.4L turbo and 7 speed DSG transmission. I’ve had it since October of 2017 and I’m very pleased with the car. It’s easy to drive, comfortable, gets about 35 US mpg in mixed driving and handles well.

Between Volkswagen Golf R and Audi S3, which is better and why?

(answer assumes you live in the US) From a mechanical perspective, they’re virtually the same car. They have the same engine, same brakes, same suspension and if you get the DSG in the R, the same transmission. The Golf R has the option of a 6 speed manual transmission where the S3 is only available with the DSG (dual clutch automatic). I own a 2016 Golf R. I chose it over the S3 for a few reasons. the available 6 speed manual lower cost (I even looked at used S3s and the R was still less money) hatchback design is more versatile than the S3’s sedan design. I liked the interior design on the Golf better than the S3, though the S3 sport seats are nicer than the Golf’s seats (which are still quite nice). The VW badge draws less attention than the Audi badge. At the time, the Golf came with Apple CarPlay and the S3 did not. That may have changed for 2017. The only advantages I could see for the S3 were… A better dealer network and, likely, better ongoing service. This will vary by dealer though and the dealer I go to has been fine. having a lockable, hidden trunk is nice sometimes, at the expense of more possible storage space with a hatchback. The S3’s sport seats, as I mentioned, were nicer. Likely better resale value, at the expense of higher initial cost. That said, an enthusiast car like the R is going to be easy to resell if needed. The S3 comes with an actual spare tire where the Golf R comes with a repair kit consisting of an electric inflator and a bottle of tire sealant. The spare from the S3 will fit in the Golf R. You just need a few pieces to keep it locked down. More options and likely more flexibility in how you choose those options. In 2016, there were essentially two trim lines for the Golf R, base and a package with 19″ wheels and adjustable suspension. There was also an additional package that could be added to the 19″ wheel package that got you adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. This seemed to only exist in theory though as the dealers couldn’t get one. If I had to make that decision again, I’d still get the Golf R over the S3.

How is Volkswagen Tiguan? Is it worth buying that car?

I own a new model Tiguan (sep 2016 delivery) with the 2 liter petrol engine, 180hp, and 4 motion all wheel drive, dsg 7 speed double clutch gearbox, and pretty much most options. I bought it to replace a Volkwagen Touareg that I’ve owned for 12 years. The main reason I bought it is because it is pretty much the only vehicle in it’s class with 2500kg towing capacity. BMW X3, Mercedes GLC, Volvo XC60, Seat Ateca all are limited to 2100kg. A two-horse trailer with two horses comes in at about 2400kgs. I’ve used the horse trailer, and the 4WD system to good effect in muddy fields. Although the Tiguan is a much more nimble, faster and lighter car than the Touareg, it is almost as big inside. Since my kids have grown up, I actually don’t need the full size SUV. Mine has all the modern driving aids and most options. I’ve driven 36019 km with the car up until today (Aug 22nd, 2017). Had one long life service, primarily an oil change at 30000 kms. Pro: Fuel economy: 12,49 km/l over its lifetime, but the last 3 months averaging at 13,4 km/l or 7,2 l / 100 km — however, I drive mostly in economy mode Great towing capacity for size of car; Excellent handling and comfort; Full LED dynamic lighting, digital dash display, HUD, Digital Audio Broadcasting… excellent; Wonderful panorama roof; Drives itself in stop-and-go traffic. Keeps in lane, keeps distance, and brakes to full stop and accelerates. Really useful if you drive a lot during rush hour. Cons: The collision avoidance system occasionally alerts too easily / soon; Until the first software update, some advanced systems did not work correctly (the speed sign recognition system, the handsfree tail liftgate), or occasionally showed intermittent faults (the adaptive cruise control). These have all been resolved; All in all, I am very happy with the purchase, and would recommend it.
