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.
