- SEAT Tarraco named Best Large SUV by Auto Express
- Seven-seat SUV retains the accolade following previous year’s success
- Tarraco impresses with stylish design, drive appeal and generous levels of tech
- Sub-£30,000 price tag ensures Tarraco is one of the best value in class
The SEAT Tarraco has been named Best Large SUV at the 2020 Auto Express Awards, retaining the accolade for a second consecutive year.
Having scooped the award in 2019 shortly after its launch, the seven-seat Tarraco continues to lead the large SUV segment as an impressive overall package of style, drive appeal and practicality.
With numerous categories across all segments, each Auto Express Award winner is the best car to buy in its class according to the magazine’s team of expert reviewers.
The Tarraco was singled out by Auto Express for offering an unrivalled driving experience – especially for its class – alongside its strong dynamic design and generous level of equipment and advanced technology.
A starting price of £29,140, a range of petrol and diesel engines that are already certified to the more stringent RDE2 certification, and a flexible cabin that switches from seven seats to a load space of 1,775-litres makes the Tarraco a compelling contender in the large SUV segment.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief at Auto Express, said: “If you’ve got a growing family and need a seven-seat car, these days it’s an SUV you’ll be looking at, rather than a conventional MPV – and the SEAT Tarraco is yet again the best large SUV on sale.
“SEAT has broadened the range with even more engine and trim combinations, but every combination offers the same appealing blend of attributes that made this seven-seat SUV a success in our 2019 awards. With even more choice available for buyers, it’s now an even stronger proposition in 2020."
Richard Harrison, SEAT UK Managing Director, said: “The SEAT SUV range has gone from strength to strength, now accounting for more than 40 per cent of sales in the UK. The Tarraco introduced the latest design which has now been carried across to other models, including the refreshed Ateca.
“In a crowded segment it takes a lot to be noticed, let alone be class leader, but this award shows how much the Tarraco’s stylish design, great fun to drive and generous specification have remained relevant to UK customers.”
