SEAT’s new flagship model

The New Tarraco: the right SUV to complete SEAT’s biggest product offensive

Martorell, 21 November 2018

We live in a world that is highly connected whether it’s through our smartphones or computers, and the New SEAT Tarraco extends that connection into the brand’s latest and largest SUV.

The Tarraco benefits from a large 8” floating central display that integrates SEAT’s Full Link technology to bring the most important information into the SUV and put it at the occupants finger tips. The full connectivity solution allows users to benefit from maximum connectivity between their smartphones and the vehicle, incorporating Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Access to calls, messages, music and voice recognition as well as the SEAT Drive App, means that the Tarraco allows you to network wherever and whenever.

The SEAT Drive App gives users customisable options to enjoy features such as record your tracks, check your car status, or identify a song via Shazam (only for Android Auto), all through the Tarraco’s 8” touchscreen.

In addition, Amazon Alexa is also available with the SEAT Tarraco, meaning customers can optimise their time behind the wheel; whether its managing their personal schedule, playing music, navigating to points of interest, requesting personalised news or finding the nearest SEAT dealership. The SEAT Media Control with Amazon Alexa app not only increases the amount of functionality available in the car, but also simplifies access to those key functions. All users need to do is press the control button on the steering wheel and speak.

The Tarraco not only benefits from the clarity and connectivity of the central Infotainment system, the large SUV also integrates SEAT’s versatile and customisable Digital Cockpit too, providing clearer information to the driver, and helping them keep their eyes on the road.

The 10.25” digital display is an interactive, customisable pixel-dense digital instrumentation cluster, that not only has a modern and versatile design, but provides greater functionality, allowing drivers to view everything from classic information found on analogue dials, such as speedometer and tachometer, to full-colour maps and navigation.

Controlling the information provided is simple and requires the driver to merely press the steering wheel-mounted ‘View’ control button to scroll through the three different available main displays, minimising driver distraction and maximising the clarity of information provided depending on the driver’s needs.

Transitions between the available information on the 1280 x 480-pixel TFT display are smooth thanks to its 75Hz refresh rate, which makes information easier to read further helping reduce driver stress.

Combined with the possibility of a BeatsAudio system to bring the crystal clear audio into the cabin and a Connectivity Box that allows users to connect and charge their smartphones wirelessly and the New Tarraco offers what few other vehicles can.

In addition, The Tarraco is the first SEAT to feature gesture control functions (when equipped with 8’’ Navigation Plus), which allows the driver to interact with the display without touching it, merely requiring a simple movement of the hand.
