New automatic model added to SEAT Tarraco range

Combination of front-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox available in SEAT Tarraco for the first time

  • New model starts at £29,900 in SE spec
  • The 1.5-litre petrol engine is capable of up to 35.2mpg
  • Intended for buyers who want an automatic gearbox but don’t need four-wheel drive

The SEAT Tarraco SUV line-up has been expanded with a model that combines front-wheel-drive and a seven-speed automatic gearbox for the first time. Prices start at £29,900 for the car in SE trim, rising to £33,485 for the range-topping XCellence Lux version. The car is on sale now, with the first cars scheduled for delivery in early 2020.

Featuring the same turbocharged 148bhp 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine as the existing manual model, this new front-wheel-drive Tarraco is equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox that helps to shave 0.2 seconds from the 0-62mph time of the manual equivalent, reducing it to 9.5 seconds. Fuel economy and emissions are claimed to be 35.3-39.2mpg and 164g/km of CO2 respectively.
