Seat Previews New 7-Seat Tarraco SUV Ahead Of September 18 Debut

Seat is giving us one final look at a Tarraco SUV test car before it drops the camouflage completely for its official debut on September 18.

The Spanish brand’s new SUV will sit above the Ateca in the range, offering more interior space and seating for seven passengers, just like its cousins from Germany and Czech Republic, meaning the VW Tiguan Allspace and the Skoda Kodiaq respectively.

Seat’s offering appears to adopt a more dynamic visual character, adopting a sleeker face and a more prominent shoulder line on the sides. The rear end will feature LED taillights that will be connected via a light bar.

In the latest teaser, Seat’s head of Predevelopment, Patents and Innovation Stefan Ilijevic said that “the feeling at the wheel of the new Seat Tarraco is impressive. It’s very dynamic and makes you feel safe at the same time”. The car maker also confirmed that boot capacity of the new Tarraco is set at 760 liters, arguably when the third row of seats isn’t in use.

Driving off-road will not be a problem with the new Seat Tarraco as it apparently can handle slopes with up to 70 percent inclination by braking itself, as well as lateral tilts of up to 85 percent. Seat will debut two new driving assistance systems with the Tarraco, with Rollover Assist being one of them.

The driver will get to choose between six driving modes via a selector dial, depending on the surface, while there’s also an adaptive suspension option.

The engine range is expected to mirror that of its cousins, meaning 1.4-liter and 2.0-liter TSI petrol units, as well as a 2.0-liter TDI diesel, offered with different power outputs.

Seat will unveil the new Tarraco in Tarragona on September 18, so stay tuned.

      The skoda kodiaq cannot establish originality on its own since the kodiaq is already a vw group copycat.

    Seat TIguan Allspace..

      But the VW Tiguan Allspace is made in Mexico, and the Skoda Kodiaq in Eastern Europe…
      Therefore the Seat Tarraco really deserves this crown as the Seat Tguan Allspace
      being the only one to be made in VW’s headuarters in Germany.
