Seat is preparing to launch its first off-road vehicle, the Seat Altea Freetrack. The car will be presented at the Barcelona Motor Show which will take place between 7 and 17 June. A prototype of this car was first presented in Geneva, but the model presented in Barcelona will be the final production version and will go on sale this summer.
The car will be powered by a 200 hp 2.0 TFSI petrol engine (40 hp less than the concept) and a 170 hp 2.0 TDI diesel engine are responsible for taking the Altea freetrack over all types of terrain. The 2.0 TFSI engine takes the car to a top speed of 214 km/h, with 0 to 100 km/h taking just 7.5 seconds â€“ yet it can still average fuel consumption of 9.4 litres. On the other hand, the 2.0 TDI reaches a top speed of 204 km/h, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.7 seconds and consumes an average of 6.8 litres for every 100 km of driving.
The Seat Altea Freetrack features dual climatise control, rain sensor wipers, light sensor, parking sensors, cruise control, trip computer, plus CD MP3 radio and steering wheel mounted controls, among others. Safety highlights include standard ESP (Electronic Stability Control), six airbags, EPS electro-mechanical steering and tyre pressure warning.
