TV presenter Mairead Ronan gets behind the wheel to guess her Secret Undercover Vehicle

Louise Carroll


Prepare for a hefty dose of SUV envy. A seven-seater SUV at that.

And there’s no denying its features are pretty slick.

Boasting twenty-inch alloy wheels, LED lights in at the front and rear with dynamic indicators, a digital cockpit, wireless phone charging (three USB ports, two in the front, one in the back), voice control, a 360-degree camera and an SOS safety feature above the driver seat — the SEAT Tarraco is the most practical car we’ve seen lately. With its Full Link technology too, you can access your smartphone apps directly from your touchscreen via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.


P.S.A. — the SEAT Tarraco has self-parking technology, so you can relax and never have to worry about parallel parking again! (Glorious.)

Multiple configurations of seating are possible too with the rear seats moving forward, back, and reclining for optimum comfort. There are three Isofix points — one in the front passenger seat and two in the second-row outer seats — allowing for the easy fit of child seats too.

Next is the boot — a very spacious and roomy spot, where you’ll find endless amounts of room to lug around ALL the gear you and yours could possibly need. Mairead even referred to it as a ‘gamechanger’ and we’re inclined to agree.

The Dancing with the Stars winner was particularly impressed with the heated seats too. Just think of how much more pleasant those winter mornings could be for our derrière.

So, have a little peek at how utterly smooth and sleek the SEAT Tarraco looks in the video below. Between the safety features, the comfort, the height, the spaciousness and now — the simplicity of driving, we’re more than willing to take it for that test-drive!
