The biggest SEAT SUV was launched in 2018 and it was based on the MQB-A long wheelbase platform from the parent-company VW. It was the same platform used for the VW Tiguan Allspace and Skoda Kodiaq. The SEAT-specific headlights are angled towards the upside-down hexagonal grille.
On the side, the big 4.74 meter (15.5 ft) long car has a simple, clean design, with a single line that unites the front wheel-arch with the taillight. Since the car shares the MQB platform, the wheels seem somehow small for the vehicle. Depending on the trim level, the car features 17” light-alloy wheels. On the top trim level, 19” wheels are installed.
Inside the cabin, the Tarraco offers up to seven seats. Aside from a flash of trim across the center of the dashboard, there’s nothing special about the SEAT Tarraco‘s interior design. The driver has a 10.25” display behind the steering wheel. In the center of the dashboard, an eight-inch screen sat proudly. It had colorful graphics and its slick controls mean it recognizes the gestures used on a smartphone. It has a built-in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The fully-independent suspension provided a good comfort for the SUV. Adaptive dampers were offered as an option, to enhance the road-holding. The engine ranged from a 150 hp gasoline unit up to a 190 hp turbodiesel engine. Standard transmission was a 6-speed manual and an optional 7-speed dual-clutch automatic was offered.
