VIDEO: SEAT Tarraco review - big, brilliant...pointless?

Published 18 November 2019

In the spirit of all things Volkswagen Group, the German multi-brand monster has released another seven-seat SUV. This one, the SEAT Tarraco, is virtually identical to the Skoda Kodiaq except it's considerably more expensive. Pointless, then? 

Watch Mark's video review to discover the answer. Spoiler alert: it's yes. But hit play below anyway because there's a bit more to it than that.

I wouldn't buy one - not with a stupid name like Tarraco! For goodness' sake, who chooses these daft monikers?!!!

I believe the names of Seat cars are voted on. Goidness knows what the other options were!

Mark, it was pleasing to see right at the end that you said you'd actually buy the Peugeot 5008!
We have a 2018 3008 which is a brilliant car!

Off topic, but you really are starting to look like Gary Windass from Coronation St! And I'm not sure that's quite the look you're after!

Cheers for tje great review anyway.

It could have been worse. Seat models are named after Spanish cities. Tarraco is the Roman name for what is now Tarragona - and that would have been a right mouthful!

Over time I have like many others, heard of some ...unusual reasons for choosing a car...but to pass this car by JUST BECAUSE of the name, when in many/all other respects it may suit, is taking idiocy to new levels. SEAT won't miss you as a customer, just pity the brand that makes the car you buy.

Hey Mark,
Would you really go for the 5008?
I only ask as our Kodiaq has been a great car generally for the last few years BUT we have had constant electrical gremlins and have been in and out of the dealer more times than I care to remember.
It’s time to change the car soon and I’m not sure I want anything from VAG now... so back to the original question... why the 5008? Many thanks... and keep up the great work!
