The SEAT Terraco from the Volkswagen Group is the brother of the VW Tiguan and the Skoda Kodiaq. He will come to the European market in early 2019.
The Spanish middle class SUV is actually a genuine German. He runs
off the procuction line alongside his engineering brothers the VW Tiguan Allspace and the Skoda Kodiaq in the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg. With its 4.74 meter long Terraco, SEAT finally offers a SUV flagship in the segment of mid-sized SUVs.
In the UK he third row of seats comes as a standard.

Customers receive two individual seats in the 3rd row, on which, however, only a maximum of two medium-sized children can take a pain-free seat.
When all seats are opened, the 7-seater configuration retains a trunk volume of 230 liters. If you fold the two single seats of the third row, the loading volume increases to 700 liters. if all rear seats are folded you get 1775 litres loading capacity.
