Odd-looking but fine-driving four-wheel drive will cost just over £20k
17 August 2007

Seat’s pumped-up four-wheel drive version of the Altea XL, the Freetrack, will start at £20,495 when it goes on sale on 20 October.

That will buy you the 197bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol version, which is the most fun to drive. For another £900, you can get the 168bhp 2.0-litre turbodiesel version.

The Freetrack comes in only one trim level, regardless of which engine you go for. Included in the plentiful standard kit is a rear TV screen, dual-zone climate control, parking sensors and sunblinds in the rear doors.

Our Verdict

Seat Altea

The Seat Altea may be getting on a bit now, unveiled in 2003 and able to trace its roots right back to the Salsa concept car from the 2000 Geneva show, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less relevant
