SEAT’s new flagship model

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

Martorell, 21 November 2018

The New SEAT Tarraco is the benchmark among its competitors for safety. A mixture of sensors allows the vehicle to see the road ahead like never before and adapt to any incident that may occur.

Front assist with bicycle detection, lane assist and Emergency Call are all standard throughout the range, while Adaptive Cruise Control is standard on the Tarraco in Xcellence trim.

SEAT offers a plethora of additional systems too, including Emergency Assist, Blind Spot Detection and Exit Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Traffic Jam Assist and Light Assist as options, while it has also introduced two new safety systems for the first time: Pre-Crash Assist and Rollover Assist.

The Pre-Crash Assist system can react in 0.2 seconds should it detect an accident is about to happen – tightening the seatbelts, activating the hazard lights, rolling up the windows and closing the sunroof – helping protect the passenger compartment. Rollover Assist, a rollover detection system, if activated, will make an emergency call, switch off the engine, unlock the doors, turn on the hazard lights, and change the ventilation system.

Add to these systems the convenience features also included; Park Assist, the Electric Tailgate with Virtual Pedal and Top View camera system and the New SEAT Tarraco stands head and shoulders above its competitors in the large SUV market.
