Volkswagen’s Cross virus has infected the SEAT brand – introducing the Seat Altea Freetrack Prototype based on the Seat Altea XL. To improve approach and departure angles, the Freetrack stands 185mm higher than the standard Altea XL. It’s also equipped with a more aggressive bodykit to invoke a sense of adventure.
On the inside, the cockpit has been re-arranged and turned into a 2+2 seater with sports bucket seats. The engine itself is the venerable 2.0 litre TFSI which is tuned to make 240PS, mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. A Haldex differential sends power to all four wheels, making the Altea Freetrack not so much of a poser soft-roader but something which can do moderate amounts of off-roading.
