SEAT Tarraco FR

Introduction

Martorell, 14 September 2020

The SEAT Tarraco FR expands the large SUV’s range to include a vehicle that builds on all the benefits of the original but with a new, sportier, more dynamic dimension to its personality. A range of exterior enhancements, including the trim-specific grille with FR logo, announce the vehicle’s change of character, while wider, black wheel arching mouldings, black roof rails and window frames with side mirrors painted in Cosmo Grey enhance the changes. At the rear of the Tarraco a new sporty spoiler, coast-to-coast lighting, an exclusive rear diffusor and rear logo in a handwritten style add to its allure.

The Tarraco FR trims look is enriched by the colour palette available and the exterior look is completed with the inclusion of 19” and 20” FR machined alloy wheels.

Inside, a sports steering wheel bears the FR logo, aluminium pedals add energy while SEAT’s Digital Cockpit helps provide the final element to the cabin’s dedicated focus on the driver, as they take the controls from the bucket seats (driver’s seat: electric with memory function).

The FR trim also brings with it the latest generation of infotainment system helping occupants stay connected and up-to-date no matter where the road takes them. It’s an area of the vehicle that gains increasing importance as our lives become always more digital-focused.

But the changes aren’t purely aesthetic. The Tarraco also benefits from a sport suspension setup in the Adaptive Chassis Control (DCC) to provide the ride and handling expected from a vehicle carrying the badge – it is after all intended to provide a more focused, dynamic experience.

The chassis is matched perfectly to the range of engines available. The line-up now includes a new TDI engine of 200PS, in addition to the current range of engines available on the Tarraco.

TSI petrol units are available with power outputs of between 150PS (110kW) and 190PS (140kW) and capacities of 1.5-2.0 litres. Diesel remains core to the Tarraco, and the FR benefits from two 2.0-litre TDI units with 150PS (110kW) and 200PS (147kW) power outputs respectively. In early 2021, the Tarraco will also be available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain that mates a TSI petrol unit with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery to offer the definitive balance between performance and efficiency.

The SEAT Tarraco FR has been designed to offer the highest levels of performance, efficiency and convenience, wrapped in a distinctive look that stands out from the crowd, offering a character that’s in sync with the world around it.
