SEAT are experts when it comes to SUVs but they’ve not had a large model in their range….until now. Please welcome the SEAT Tarraco. It will sit above the Ateca and Arona to complete the brand’s SUV line-up.
Four different trim levels are available, although there will be a range of First Edition models which will be available for a short time. More about that shortly.
The range and their prices for the entry-level 1.5 TSI Evo engine, will comprise…..
SE Technology, £29,330
XCELLENCE LUX £32,135
Every SEAT Tarraco comes with seven seats, metallic paint, 17” Alloys, DAB, air conditioning.
SE Technology adds satellite navigation, dark tinted windows and 18” Alloy wheels.
XCELLENCE adds wireless charger, ACC, rear view camera, electric tailgate, 19” Alloy wheels and Alcantara upholstery.
At the top of the range, XCELLENCE LUX adds a clever top view camera, 20” Alloy wheels, leather upholstery and a winter pack.
In terms of engine and transmission choice, the line-up includes two petrol engines…. 1.5 TSI 150 PS and 2.0 TSI 190 PS. The larger petrol engine has an automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive as standard. There is also a pair of 2.0 litre diesel engines which develop different amounts of power. There’s a 2.0 TDI 150 PS which is also available with auto transmission and AWD, and a 2.0 TDI 190 PS with auto and AWD as standard. All engines benefit from direct injection, turbocharging and stop-start technology.
As for the limited edition First Edition models…the range consists of….
SE Technology First Edition with a 1.5 TSI Evo 150PS engine (£30,475) which adds a rear view camera, safe driving pack, wireless phone charger and dark tinted windows.
XCELLENCE First Edition, with a choice of either a petrol 1.5 TSI Evo 150PS engine (£33,260) or a 2.0 TDI NR 150PS unit (£34,745) adds 20” Alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, winter pack and safe driving pack.
The top of the range XCELLENCE First Edition Plus also has a choice of engines…2.0 TSI NR DSG-auto 4Drive 190PS (£38,020) and 2.0 TDI NR DSG-auto 4Drive 190PS (£39,505). This level of trim adds a Beats audio system and electrically powered driver’s seat.
In terms of colours, you can choose from Dark Camouflage, Oryx White, Reflex Silver, Atlantic Blue, Indium Grey, Urano Grey and Deep Black.
Will it fit in your garage? The SEAT Tarraco is 4735mm long, 1658mm high and 1839mm wide.
And how much can you carry? Well, if you flop the second and third row seats into the floor, you’ll end up with a massive 1775 litres load area. Climb in and go for a walk.
If you fold the just the third row, you’ll still have five seats in place and a large 700 litres of space, while if you keep both the second AND third rows in place, you will still have 230 litres of baggage space.
If you need a family holdall, the SEAT Tarraco should be right up your street.
