Here it is, the new SEAT Tarraco, a large SUV that is aimed at someone and expected to be bought by somebody. Marketing people use a more technical term, demographics. Apparently, the demographics named the Tarraco in a public vote. Marketing people call this a new way to reach those potential buyers as… verticals. The sales division call this public ownership, cha-ching.Anyway enough of this corporate communism. The Tarraco is the real deal, SEAT is marketing it as a sporty vehicle with dynamic handling capabilities. The best in class/segment. Usual fluffy positivity. To be honest, its just hyper-marketing speak. Or the PR division is being held at gunpoint to write positive, unsubstantiated quotes. Nevertheless, the SEAT Tarraco still has to do normal things. For example, it will have the usual array of model trims and a range of engines. And driver assist technologies. Two petrol variants will be available: a four-cylinder 150bhp, 1.5 litre TSI, linked to a six-speed manual and a 2.0 litre, 190bhp offering mated to a seven-speed DSG gearbox and 4Drive total traction system. Also available are two diesel 4-cylinder engines, 2.0 litre TDIs, with power outputs of 150bhp and 190bhp respectively. The 150PS variant is available in either as a front-wheel drive, six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG with 4Drive system. The higher powered version is solely available in 4Drive/seven-speed DSG gearbox. SEAT is planning to introduce what it calls, alternative powertrain technologies. In other words Hybrid and or full-electric. Tarraco’s interior will use a VW sourced 10.25’’ Digital Cockpit (instrument binnacle) and an 8’’ floating HMI screen where occupants can access SEAT’s suite of connectivity options. Pre-sales of the SEAT Tarraco will start in December.
