There is a lot to like about the Seat Tarraco. It’s one of the better cars in the class to drive if you like something that feels a bit sporty, it's really generously equipped and it has a very good safety rating, if not the best in the class. But it isn’t as versatile as the very best large SUVs both in terms of space in its rear-most seats and its boot. There are cheaper alternatives, for private buyers and company car users alike.
The trimSee full equipment
Our favourite trim comes really well equipped with 17in alloy wheels, three-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, power-folding door mirrors, digital instruments, seven seats, LED headlights, metallic paint, cruise control and rear parking sensors. SE Technology adds a bigger infotainment screen and in-built sat-nav, but this trim’s 8.3in screen is big enough and, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard, you can use your phone's sat-nav (Google Maps or Waze) instead.

This 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol is our pick of the range and great most of the time, feeling more than sufficient around town and when tackling longer jaunts along motorways. 0-62mph takes 9.9sec for the six-speed manual (9.5sec if you opt for the dual-clutch automatic ’box), which is roughly the same as the Kia Sorento Hybrid and Peugeot 5008 1.2 Puretech 130, and it only labours a little if the car's completely rammed to the rafters with people and luggage.
Coarse engine and laggy infotainment, but a classy interi...
Quiet, comfortable and cheap to buy and run, but there's no se...
