SEAT has unveiled two sporty new trim levels - FR and FR Sport - for the head of its SUV family, the Tarraco.

Tire Wheel Land vehicle Car Vehicle


Offering enhancements to the exterior, interior and technology package, these two options complete the full range line-up for Tarraco.

The seven-seater Tarraco, the latest and largest of SEAT's acclaimed SUV range, is available to order from February 11, with prices starting from £31,680 RRP.

The FR exterior body styling DNA fuses performance, practicality and sporty-appeal that perfectly suits their needs. The Tarraco FR comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, the more aggressive FR body styling kit - featuring the dynamic twin exhaust, unique rear spoiler, front and rear sports bumper, as well as black mouldings, wing mirrors and roof rails. The cabin benefits from front sports seats as well as an electric driver's seat.

The FR Sport takes things another step forwards, with the car planted on arch-filling 20-inch 'Cosmo' grey alloy wheels and benefitting from black leather sports seats inside.

The FR Sport also gets an extra technology boost, with rear and top-view cameras offering better all-round visibility and safety, while SEAT's winter pack adds heated washer nozzles while the occupants can enjoy heated front and rear seats.

Both models also receive SEAT's self-parking Park Assist system which adds front parking sensors.

All this equipment comes on top of the already generous standard of specification available across the Tarraco line-up. All models receive automatic full LED headlamps, SEAT Digital Cockpit - which includes the 10.25-inch digital driver binnacle and 8-inch full-colour infotainment touchscreen - Full Link, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a USB socket in all three rows of seats.

The FR and FR Sport trims, available with Tarraco's full range of engines, complete the line-up alongside the existing SE, SE Technology, Xcellence and Xcellence Lux specifications.

One thing I worked out though... If I did get the new FR with same engine and spec, it would take it over the £40k threshold, so would have to pay more in road tax.

I'm not that bothered about the interior, only the exterior.

Lets say we keep our standard wheels but get the FR bits retrofitted, this would still work out much cheaper the the increase in premium for the FR with the additional road tax costs over 5yrs.

Feel happier now?

I was always planning on colour coding my lux, which with the release of the FR makes it much easier, because there is now a front wheel arch moulding I can buy that has the separate sill piece.

The FR has a different rear valance but I'm happy with colour coding the Lux bumper.

No point making it into a FR copy, may as well do something individual! Cant wait for summer to appear as I'll be doing all the painting work in my gazebo :D

Planning on fitting the front fog surround, side trims and rear boot protector in satin chrome.

Road Tax the only version subject to 5 year supplement as going over £40000 is on FR Sport 190BHP TDI AUTO at £41,690 all others under £40000,
Part of the increase is not spec but VED on to WLTP Emissions.

I have the RONTR price list in front of me, seriously thinking of changing my order to FR Sport

Is that because of Pano Roof?
Yup, correct sir.

With my tsi lux I added pan roof, tow bar pre wire and space saver.

I did consider a TDI 190 lux but with the same options would have gone over £40k too.

I no longer do the big miles so I decided the extra fuel economy and low down grunt of the TDI was not worth the extra money over my term of ownership. Also, a deciding factor was all the stories of diesel bans etc... You already have to pay more to park in the London Borough of Camden due to diesel.
