SEAT has now opened for ordering on 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, is attracting attention with its high level of standard spec: metallic paint, 17” Alloys, DAB, alarm and Full Link for just £28,320 OTR.
Tarraco mixes state-of-the-art technology with dynamic and agile handling and is produced in Wolfsburg on the MQB-A LWB architecture. Combining practicality and functionality with an elegant and progressive design, 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.”
Building on SEAT UK’s successful easymove strategy, which simplifies the buying process, four different trim levels are available: SE, SE Technology, XCELLENCE and XCELLENCE LUX. OTR prices start at £28,320 for the SE 1.5 TSI Evo 150PS; £29,330 for the SE Tech; £30,410 for XCELLENCE and £32,135 for XCELLENCE LUX.
Metallic paint, Full Link, DAB, 17” 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” Alloy wheels, while 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 further spec of top view camera, 20” Alloy wheels, leather upholstery and a winter pack.
The engine and transmission line-up includes a 1.5 TSI 150 PS, 2.0 TSI 190 PS DSG 4Drive, 2.0 TDI 150 PS (including a DSG 4Drive option) and a 2.0 TDI 190 PS DSG 4Drive. All engines benefit from direct injection, turbocharging and stop-start technology.
