Background

This is cookie cutter product planning - the Seat version of the longer MQB-AO platform, or Spain's take on the Skoda Kodiaq and VW Tiguan Allspace. The slightly longer wheelbase means there's space for a third row of seats, making this a seven-seater. For more information on the Tarraco, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test

The Seat Tarraco is entirely as expected: it drives in a very similar fashion to its group peers, owing to the high degree of shared componentry. It's mildly disappointing that it looks so similar too. But real-world consumers are less likely to notice the similarities and we should focus on the positives. It's a comfy place to sit, build quality is good and the extra row of seats provides some welcome flexibility. Just remember they're best suited to kids, not grown-ups, unless for short journeys. It's good to drive, too, and the ride, handling and performance are all class competitive.
