Expert Rating

Summary


The SEAT Tarraco is a large seven-seat SUV/crossover, which made its premiere at the 2018 Paris motor show before going on sale in the UK in early 2019. It shares its platform with the similarly-sized Skoda Kodiaq.

The Tarraco has received generally good scores from the UK motoring media in the few months it has been on sale, and we will continue to add new reviews as they are published. It has been particularly praised for its practicality, spaciousness and value for money. The main criticism has been that the third row of seats is cramped compared to other seven-seat SUV rivals.

The SEAT Tarraco has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP. As yet, very few new cars have been tested for environmental impact by Green NCAP, and inevitably the testing programme was halted in early 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic.
