The company Seat began road tests seven-seat crossover Tarraco, which premiere to be held in the fall of 2018 at the Paris Motor Show. Spy photos of the test prototype of the novelty were published by Auto Express.

Exterior of the flagship crossover Seat will perform in the style of “younger” SUV Spanish brand – Ateca and Arona. At the same time, as expected, the model will receive a completely different interior, and as an option will be available fully digital instrument panel.

The all-terrain vehicle will be built on the modular platform MQB, which already underlies Skoda Kodiaq and Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace. It is assumed that the line of motors will include inflatable gasoline units with a working volume of 1.4 and 2.0 liters, as well as two-liter diesel engines. Cars will be offered with both front and all-wheel drive.

In the summer of 2017, Seat launched the #SeatSeekingName campaign, which asked the public to come up with a name for the new model. The name of the car traditionally should correspond to geographical objects of Spain. In addition, the name of the crossover should be easily pronounced and written in different languages.

In September, at the Frankfurt motor show, Seat announced a shortlist of potential names for the model. The list includes the names: Alboran, Aranda, Avila and Tarraco. About 150 thousand people took part in the final voting, about 35% of which voted for the name Tarraco.
