Review

There is a lot to like about the Seat Tarraco. It’s enjoyable to drive, generously equipped and one of the safest cars in its class, but it isn’t as versatile as the very best large SUVs.

get the best price

Entry-level SE models are reasonably equipped, with 17in alloy wheels, three-zone climate control, automatic wipers and power-folding door mirrors. We reckon it’s worth upgrading to SE Technology trim, though, not only for its sat-nav but also because it brings upmarket features such as 18in wheels and tinted rear windows.

Though this 148bhp engine is impressive in some other VW Group cars, it feels a bit underpowered under the bonnet of the hefty Tarraco.
