Seat may be a rel­a­tive new­comer to the

SUV ranks, but it’s rapidly mak­ing up for lost time. The new Arona and Tarraco sit ei­ther side of the Ateca, which was launched as the brand’s first SUV in 2016.

The Arona is the small­est car in the line-up, oc­cu­py­ing a foot­print not much big­ger than a tra­di­tional su­per­mini, but it’s de­cep­tively spa­cious in­side and it comes with a gen­er­ous 400-litre boot. There’s a choice of three petrol en­gines (95PS, 115PS and 150PS) and two diesels (95PS and 115PS) plus man­ual or DSG trans­mis­sion. Prices range from £17,145 to £24,570.

At the other end of the range, the Tarraco is a full-size SUV that comes with seven seats as stan­dard.

Four-wheel drive is avail­able on se­lected mod­els, while the en­gine choice con­sists of two petrols (150PS and 190PS) and two diesels (also 150PS and 190PS) mated to ei­ther a six-speed man­ual or a seven-speed DSG.

Prices start at £28,320 for the Tarraco SE 1.5 TSI man­ual and rise to £40,075 for the XCELLENCE First Edi­tion, which comes with the top-spec two-litre diesel, four­wheel drive and a DSG gear­box as stan­dard.
