SEAT has now opened the order books for its first large SUV and new flagship model, Tarraco. The seven-seater, which sits above Arona and Ateca to complete the Spanish brand’s SUV line-up, features metallic paint, 17-inch alloys, DAB, alarm and Full Link for just £28,320.
Tarraco is produced in Wolfsburg on the MQB-A LWB architecture. It is the first model to show the new direction being pursued by the Martorell-based team led by Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos.
Richard Harrison, Managing Director of SEAT UK, said: “We are thrilled to close what has been a fantastic year for SEAT UK by opening for orders on our new flagship model, Tarraco. Our first-ever large SUV is a cracker, and the perfect way to complete our full range of SUVs, joining the multi-award winning Ateca and Arona. Tarraco is already turning heads with its eye-catching combination of fresh design language, state-of-the-art technology and an enjoyably dynamic drive. Add to that our innovative easymove range structure, which means customers get a great level of standard specification and metallic paint included for free, and Tarraco represents exceptional value for money. It is sure to fly out of showrooms in the new year.”
Four different trim levels are available: SE, SE Technology, XCELLENCE and XCELLENCE LUX.
Metallic paint, Full Link, DAB, 17-inch alloy wheels, alarm and three zone climate control are part of the standard spec across all trim levels. SE Technology adds on navigation, dark tinted windows and 18-inch alloy wheels, while XCELLENCE adds wireless charger, ACC, rear view camera, electric tailgate, 19-inch alloy wheels and Alcantara upholstery. At the top of the range, XCELLENCE LUX adds further spec of top view camera, 20-inch lloy wheels, leather upholstery and a winter pack.
The engine and transmission line-up includes a 1.5 TSI 148 bhp, 2.0 TSI 187 bhp DSG 4Drive, 2.0 TDI 148 bhp (including a DSG 4Drive option) and a 2.0 TDI 187 bhp DSG 4Drive. All engines benefit from direct injection, turbocharging and stop-start technology.
