SEAT’s new flagship model
SEAT’s first large SUV, the all-new SEAT Tarraco, is here and available to order now. Pricing for the SEAT Tarraco starts from €34,700 RRP for the SE range, and €39,885 RRP for the Xcellence range; upgrade to a seven seater for only €1,000 across the range. The Tarraco will be available to test drive at local dealerships from January 2019, during the 191 sales peak.
The latest vehicle was designed and developed at SEAT’s facilities in Martorell and produced in Wolfsburg, Germany, marking it the third instalment in the company’s SUV product offensive. The Tarraco brings a fresh look to the sector, highlighting greater self-confidence, elegance, sportiness, and determination.
The Tarraco is SEAT’s entry into the large SUV market, completing the family line-up as it joins the Arona and Ateca
The Tarraco sits at the top of SEAT’s SUV family, the big brother to both the Ateca and the Arona, mixing state-of-the-art technology, dynamic, agile handling, practicality and functionality with elegant, progressive design. The Tarraco maximises the advantages of its larger dimensions to offer a vehicle that can take on all elements of modern life.
The new SUV blends the key attributes of every vehicle in the SEAT range: design and functionality, sportiness and comfort, technology and emotion, in a form that suits a wide variety of lifestyles. The all-new SEAT Tarraco large SUV is designed for drivers who need the usefulness of a five-or seven-seater, and the practicality of a higher driving position but are conscious of a vehicle’s aesthetics and appreciate the Tarraco’s balance between self-confidence, elegance and sportiness.
The large SUV offers increased flexibility for customers with both five- and seven-seater versions
Inside the cabin, the Tarraco fuses a high quality, ergonomically designed interior space with state-of-the-art infotainment and connectivity technologies to maximise the interaction between driver and vehicle. The full connectivity solution allows users to benefit from maximum connectivity between their smartphones and the vehicle, incorporating Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Tarraco boasts a choice of two advanced petrol engines and two sophisticated diesel units, helping it to meet the most stringent emissions legislation while offering the best performance for the customer. Built to last, the large SUV is also future-proofed and ready to take alternative powertrain technologies.
From the sculptured exterior design and high-end feel of the interior, to the advanced engine line-up and dynamic chassis technologies, the Tarraco epitomises the core values of the SEAT brand, and brings them to a segment that is primed for a disruptive force.
It will be introduced to the market for the 191 sales peak in January 2019, and is available to pre-order now
As the SUV market continues to expand, the Tarraco will play a key role for SEAT when it is introduced at the beginning of 2019, strengthening the brand and aiding further growth at a time when the company’s sales are rising steadily already. Now with a trio of SUVs to offer, SEAT’s opportunities for greater expansion can only increase, with the Tarraco poised to take the lead.
Niall Phillips, Brand Director at SEAT Ireland said: “We are very excited to welcome the Tarraco to Ireland in 2019. There has never been a greater demand in the Irish market for SUV vehicles and SEAT has been satisfying this demand over the past couple of years through its existing SUV range comprised of the SEAT Ateca and Arona, models which have enjoyed remarkable success.
The introduction of the Tarraco now allows SEAT to target a different customer segment again and we are extremely confident that it will resonate with Irish motorists. Its introduction is another key milestone in the overall evolution of SEAT. It’s great to be able to continue to offer motorists an even greater variety of high quality vehicles. “
