SEAT Tarraco Flagship SUV Teased, Debuts On September 18

SEAT has almost completed the development of the Tarraco mid-size SUV, which will celebrate its global premiere on September 18.

Before showing its new SUV to the world, Seat invited ten fans to their Martorell facility to give them a sneak peek.

Coming from different countries, including Spain, Germany, France, Italy and UK, the fans described the new Tarraco as having “an elegant silhouette“, being “a lot bigger than they expected”, and capable of “suiting their everyday needs”.

Subsequent to its premiere in less than two months, the Seat Tarraco will go on sale in different countries across Europe before the end of the year.

The new MQB-based SUV will be available with up to seven seats and is bigger than the subcompact Arona and compact Ateca. Needless to say that it’s approximately the same size as the Skoda Kodiaq.

Poised to battle it out with the Hyundai Santa Fe, Renault Koleos and Nissan X-Trail, among others, the new Tarraco will be instantly recognizable as a Seat, thanks to the brand’s signature front end.

Inside the cabin, things are expected to be pretty simple, borrowing the steering wheel from the Ateca and adding a floating-style infotainment system and probably a digital instrument cluster.

At launch, there will be two petrol engines, the 1.4-liter and 2.0-liter units, offered with two outputs each, and the 2.0-liter TDI diesel, with three distinct power levels. Later on, it’s expected to gain an electrified derivative.
