Greater globalisation by the Volkswagen Group sees SEAT producing its large SUV outside of Spain, as it trundles along the production line alongside the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace at the company’s Wolfsburg plant. Of course, under the skin, the two products are closely aligned, along with Skoda’s Kodiaq, though that model is produced at the Kvasiny and Mladá Boleslav factories in the Czech Republic.

In the end the name Tarraco was chosen, named after the Spanish city of Tarragona.
