Low quality interior

Big boot
Lots of passenger space
Loads of standard equipment

Cons
Noisy at speed
Materials feel a bit cheap
Alternatives look more exciting

Oversells its sportiness,
pricier than rivals

By:

The SEAT Tarraco is a practical, well-equipped seven-seater SUV with a durable cabin. It’s available with a good choice of engines but it’s very similar to the Skoda Kodiaq.

Pros
Extremely practical
Good standard equipment
Excellent engine range

Cons
Plain interior
Very similar to Skoda Kodiaq
No five-seat version
