At launch, the Tarraco will be available with two petrol and two diesel engines. Entry-level petrol cars feature a 1.5-litre TSI unit producing 148bhp, while a larger 2.0-litre option makes 187bhp.

A 2.0-litre diesel option will be available in 148bhp and 178bhp form, too. Four-wheel drive will be standard for the more potent models, but isn’t available on the entry-level petrol and only as an option on the least powerful diesel.

A plug-in hybrid is in the works too, with an electric-only range of more than 30 miles and a CO2 output of less than 50g/km. We can expect this to arrive sometime in the next two years.

Seat Tarraco grille design

It gets a new grille design, although Seat’s trademark triangular headlights remain, if a little smaller than before. At the rear, there’s a set of sharp-looking tail lights that appear to span the width of the car, to “express the width and practicality of an SUV”.

From launch, it’ll be available in eight different colours: Dark Camouflage, Oryx White, Reflex Silver, Atlantic Blue, Indium Grey, Titanium Beige, Deep Black and Urano Grey.

Seat Tarraco interior

Inside, an all-new dashboard design is present, that incorporates an optional 10-2in digital cockpit and an updated 8in infotainment system. The latter features gesture control for the very first time.

In the UK, the Tarraco will only be available as a seven seater, although in five-seat form it gets an impressive 760 litres of boot space. With all five rear seats down, this increases to 2,000 litres.

Seat Tarraco rear

It uses the same MQB-A long-wheelbase platform as the Tiguan Allspace and Skoda Kodiaq, although Seat says in the Tarraco’s case it gets a more dynamic set-up to deliver a more involving drive.

The vehicle’s Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) setup gives the perfect balance between a sporty feeling when you are behind the wheel, and a more comfortable ride when you need to cover longer distances, on different types of roads

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.”
