Seat has revealed the name of the final SUV model to join the brand’s current line-up – the Tarraco.
Like the rest of the Spanish brand’s cars, the Tarraco is named after a settlement in the Iberian country, with this one being the title for the manufacturer’s largest SUV.
The former name for the modern city Tarragona beat Avila, Aranda and Alboran in a public vote and is the 12th town used as a vehicle’s title.
The new model will be the last SUV added to the brand’s current offensive and joins the compact Arona and mid-size Ateca in the off-road-inspired fleet.
The Tarraco will be Seat’s seven-seat option in the SUV market and a preview image revealed with the name shows that it will carry on many of the design features used on the previous two SUV models – including bold body detailing and the brand’s hexagonal grille.
With the model still in development, Seat will be officially unveiling the Tarraco towards the end of 2018.
The seven-seater will sit on Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, which is used as the chassis for models such as Volkswagen’s Arteon, Golf and Polo, and Skoda’s Karoq and Kodiaq.
