The COVID-19 crisis has inevitably affected the automotive sector. Not only in its sales, which fell sharply during confinement, also in the presentation of new models. The firms are making titanic efforts to continue with a rhythm, at least, similar to the previous one. Others, on the other hand, show us their models in pairs. This is the case of Seat and its renewed Seat Ateca and Seat Tarrac o. We have already talked about the new Ateca and you have complete galleries to discover its improvements, focused on the aesthetic and technological equipment section. The Seat Tarraco follows in the footsteps of the firm’s best-selling crossover, adapting these developments to its body of up to seven seats. In addition, it incorporates the FR variant to its range of finishes, available from 39,650 euros with the 150 hp gasoline block and DSG automatic transmission.
The Seat León 2020 marked the beginning of a change in the firm. Until then, the front lines had remained vertical and geometric. Now, both the Seat Ateca 2020 and the recently presented Tarraco, adopt the dynamic front and elongated hood that the Spanish compact showed. This new look brings aggressiveness to the whole but also a feeling of fluidity and quality. The FR version of the Tarraco is distinguished by the specific dark gray grille called Cosmo. A tone that is repeated in mirrors, side trims, bumpers and window frames. In the rear we see his name in the new calligraphy of Seat, more artistic and fine.
The interior of the Tarraco adopts the improvements already presented by the Seat Ateca, with the 9.2-inch screen, which has a new interface and natural language recognition. The FR cosmetic kit, because it does not provide more than visual details, can be seen on the steering wheel with the FR logo and the seams of the upholstery in orange. As for the engines, the new Seat Tarraco will be available in four mechanics: two diesel and two gasoline. Later on, the legacy of the plug-in hybrid variant is expected, of which we only know its power, 245 hp, and the approved consumption of 2.2 l / 100 km (WLTP).
