Seat Tarraco Is A Possible Candidate To Get The Cupra Treatment

The Volkswagen Tiguan gave birth to the Skoda Kodiaq, which has been in production for roughly two years now, and more recently, to the Seat Tarraco.

The Spanish car brand’s entry to the mid-size SUV segment was presented online earlier this week, and slots above the Arona and Ateca. It adopts the automaker’s styling at the front, but look closer at its body and you’ll notice a number of Volkswagen and Skoda cues.

The Tarraco is based on the MQB-A architecture. The platform does no only translate into lots of space inside, but allows it to adopt various petrol and diesel units, whose outputs span between 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) and 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW), for now at least.

And while we may not know what the future has in store for the Seat’s new SUV, a Cupra version seems likely – and XTomi has already gone to work and imagined that version – although we have to point out that he used the Seat instead of the Cupra logo, as he should, on the grille.

A Curpa-branded Tarraco makes perfect sense, given that Seat has already bid big money on its performance sub-brand, which will include other models in the near future, beyond the Leon, such as the Arona, Ateca and a potential SUV-Coupe.

If it gets the green light for production, then the possible Cupra Tarraco will come with some obvious updates, both on the exterior and in the cabin, as well as a sportier chassis.

Finally, it should be powered by a more powerful engine, perhaps the one found in the upcoming Skoda Kodiaq RS (vRS in UK), namely a biturbo 2.0-liter diesel making 239 PS (236 hp / 176 kW). If they decide against the diesel, either due to the current backlash against oil burners or to differentiate it from the Kodiaq, then the turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol four that’s found in a number of the VW Group’s vehicles in different states of tune would be the obvious option.
