Seat has revealed the Tarraco, its all new seven-seat SUV.

The new Tarraco is based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A platform, used by the Skoda Kodiaq and Volkswagen Tiguan.

Aesthetically, the Tarraco previews the Spanish brand’s new design language. Up front there’s a new six-sided grille, surrounded by angular LED headlights and a split lower grille. Follow the distinctive body lines around the rear and you’ll find the connected LED tail lights, and a modern lower design with faux exhaust tips.

Powering the Tarraco are a range of turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Petrol engines consist of a 110kW (150PS) 1.5-litre that drives the front wheels through a six-speed manual, and a 132kW (190PS) 2.0-litre that powers all wheels though a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.

Those wanting a more frugal Tarraco can choose one of the diesel engines on offer: a 110kW 2.0-litre driving the front wheels through a six-speed manual (or all wheels through an auto), or a more powerful 140kW 2.0-litre that spins all wheels though a seven-speed dual-clutch auto.

A plug-in hybrid version will also be offered down the track, which will pair a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine with an electric motor for a total output of 155kW (210PS) and 400Nm (295 lb-ft), with an electric-only range of 50km (31 miles).

Inside, the Tarraco looks a lot like existing Seat models. There’s an 8.0-inch floating tablet-style infotainment touchscreen, accompanied by a 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit digital instrument cluster.

The Seat Tarraco will make its public debut at the Paris motor show next month, ahead of a European market launch happening in early 2019.
