The all-new SEAT Tarraco is a big SUV that handles very well considering its size. It also possesses a seven-seat capacity and features a large boot, even with five seats in place.
The reassuringly chunky Tarraco features a raised ride height and rising shoulder line, and a gently tapering roofline that all provide the vehicle with its attractive profile. It’s the combination of elevated ground clearance and generous proportions that result in such a capacious cabin. There’s up to seven seats available, which can be folded in varying combinations to accommodate passengers and luggage as required. With its innovative digital cockpit putting you in command of every journey too, the Tarraco is a pleasure to drive.
The entry-level 1.5-litre 148bhp petrol engine achieves fuel consumption of 6.3l/100km and produces CO2 emissions from just 152g/km – reassuringly economical for such a powerful vehicle. To increase efficiency, opt for the 2.0-litre 148bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 4.9l/100km while producing emissions as low as 129g/km. All engines feature Start-stop technology, and the 4Drive system provides optimum traction in a range of conditions.
Comfort is key in an SUV, and the all-new Tarraco certainly impresses in that field. Three-zone climate control keeps everyone in the front and second rows at the perfect temperature – even if that’s different for each of you. Meanwhile heated seats take the edge off chilly winter days. With a hands-free tailgate too, loading up with your hands full is simple.
As you would expect of an accomplished family vehicle, the Tarraco has been awarded Euro NCAP’s highest crash-test rating. A huge variety of passive safety features are included as standard, with Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane-keep Assist heading up the plethora of active measures.
