      The seats in this car look cheap and hella ugly. I bet the seats in the Kodiaq are light years ahead, so why bother with this bastard child from Spain.

      I like this vehicle. How does it compare to a Mazda CX-9? Did anyone else notice that from a distance, the name badge looks like TAAAACO @7:41? I think the fake exhaust ports should be used for bright, linear LED rear fog lamps.

      So when is the Autogefühl comparison of the Seat Tarraco, Skoda Kodiaq and VW Tiguan Allspace comming? :)

      Three cars that are basically the same, just the badge and details that are differing. What are those details? Is there really any that is "the best", or is it just a question of taste?

      I bought a Skoda Kodiaq Edition 2.0TSi DSG 4WD which Skoda UK have now accepted a rejection. Yet they cannot build another car with the updated 190 engine as it does not pass WLTP regulations, so how can they hope to sell the (good looking) Seat if the same engine cannot be supplied to them by VW?

      A stupid car, born to fail 20" Wheels, No Leather huge price tag and guess what VW Cannot supply 2.0TSi DSG Auto Spec Engines as they do NOT PASS WLTP Emissions tests, so NOT only Seat, but Audi, Skoda and VW Cannot get engines so car sales have slumped. LMAO.

      We have no choice, most test vehicles are equipped full spec to fulfill every option. So it is our job to inform about the seating choices you have or not.

      +Autogefühl I sincerely hope that your testers never test a car with Leather Upholstery. If they do that would be a contradiction in ethics.

      Autogefühl In reply to Lensman London

      Of course all leather seats are from animals being abused, how would that work to keep someone in captivity and kill him/her without abusing? Thats a contradiction in itself. Would you care if you were mainly slaughtered for your smartphone or for your purse to steal? Would you care about the specific reason that occurred first?

      +Autogefühl Upsetting as it maybe and it is ugly and horrible. It does not address my points. I am not discussing ethics, if I were I would look at more environmental issues. The points I have made are is that for a UK Spec car (which you cannot even buy because of WLTP) costing £40K Plus people expect a Top SPec, this is the MOST EXPENSIVE car Seat are selling, more expensive than teh SKoda and I think the VW. Customers expect a high spec and value for money and Leather is one of those options that in more expensive cars is standard. And in reality are you expecting me to believe that every leather seat in every car by other manufacturers is sourced by Animals being abused (which is Disgusting, unacceptable and abhorrent). What about skins from food production? https://configurator.seat.co.uk/seat-cc/desktop-desktop-006_DEFAULT-en-normal.view?msk=1

    • Autogefühl
      Autogefühl In reply to Lensman London

      We have researched this issue for many years now so please take your time to go through our extensive resources stated below as they answer every single question we have yet received concerning this matter.

      At Autogefühl, we have already received several thousands (!) comments, messages and mails that more and more people want to combine enjoying their car with reducing the environmental impact at the same time. We believe that sustainable luxury is possible or at least we should do everything to support that. Those many thousand people confirming this trend, motivate us to give you the most authentic information and background on the product parts. It is not about what you bought in the past, and it is not about blaming anyone, it is about what you decide in the future and what you can decide and influence as a customer. So we want you to have all information that you need for a decision you later enjoy and like best yourself.

      In Summer 2017, Tesla motors has decided to be the first manufacturer to go all the way with sustainable seat materials, only offering fabric/cloth seats or leatherette seats in different colours. They have banned all real leather from the seating surface and at the steering wheel in the white trim or on demand. So Tesla shows where the industry will and must be heading, just like they went forward with electrification first.

      Check out our special video addressing car CEOs as a first summary and also see conditions of animal skin production:
      https://youtu.be/LNSUzZXzpdc

      List of practical reasons against animal skin seats:


      1. animal skin seats are often sold as an expensive option, by going for base trim level seats you can save a lot of money and get a better price-performance-deal (often the manufacturers claim that animal leather is top of luxury because they can earn the best money with it)
      2. animal skin seats get hot in summer and you stick to the seat, probably you need seat cooling
      3. they get very cold in winter and you need seat heating
      4. on cloth or microfibre surfaces, you basically don’t need seat heating nor cooling
      5. animal skin seats wear out very fast and look like an old sofa
      6. if you want leather look or need seats that can be wiped clean easier, the leatherette (faux leather) surfaces are meanwhile highly evolved and it is possible that it feels even softer and better than anything else (See our Tesla Model X review https://youtu.be/y2wNGFKa4M0) So Tesla shows a good example for that and as described, non-leather materials are now standard for ALL Tesla
      7. More manufacturer names for their good alternatives: Mercedes MBTex/Artico for leatherette, Dinamica for microfibre. BMW Sensatec, Toyota Sof-Tex, Lexus Nu-Luxe (all faux leather)




      To the environmental reasons:


      1. The way the cows and other intelligent and social animals are raised and held are not according to the basic values that we all share (also see videos below)
      2. The factory farming industry can be accounted for at least 40 % of climate emissions and thus is (according to numerous sources you can look up) the number one reason for climate change and environmental destruction. It is the number one reason for deforestation, two thirds of all agricultural land on earth is used for growing animal food crops. If you would feed humans directly by using the agricultural land, you could produce much more food for everyone. See this interesting essay for more on climate emissions background: http://www.worldwatch.org/files/pdf/Livestock%20and%20Climate%20Change.pdf
      3. It is not only cows who are suffering, but also the environment and to a big part also humans. Think of slavery-like working conditions in slaughterhouses (there are plenty of documentaries about this) or think of chemically altered drinking water in animal skin production villages as also seen in the video footage.
      4. The discussion, for which body part the cow is killed first, is very patronizing. But if you really think it would be important why someone gets killed in first place: There are many productions where the cow is killed for the skin first, sometimes even while still being (part-)alive, the skin is the most profitable single part of the body.
      5. So even if a cow gets theoretically killed for meat first, in every case you give additional money to an industry that relies on killing, pollutes the environment and harms people with chemicals. Let's say you are standing at the meat counter. And you ask for the leg of the cow. The butcher tells you: "You can eat that without worrying, the cow was slaughtered for the neck first". The next customer demands the neck. The butcher tells him: "It's not your fault, the cow was slaughtered for the belly". A the next customer demands the hide, what answer does he get? You see, that argument of "byproduct" comes from the meat and leather industry to cover up that you contribute to killing no matter which part of the body you buy.
      6. To the often said argument, animal skin would just be a byproduct, please google/youtube "leather is not a byproduct" you will find plenty of information. A good overview on all those issues can also be found here: http://adaptt.org/




      To “But leatherette is not sustainable due to petrochemical production”
      1. Indeed some fabrics and micro fibres are oil based, however most oil is spent on energy production, heating and fuel. The share of oil used for artificial cloth etc. is very very small.
      2. If you look at the whole production process, the leatherette is way more sustainable than the leather produce. Even if you leave the ethical aspect aside, here is the official calculation of the CO2-Output animal skin vs leatherette (different kinds of leatherette):
      Leather 17 kg CO2/m²
      PVC leatherette 10 kg CO2/m²
      Acella Eco natural leatherette 8,5 kg CO2/m²
      Benova (PUR leatherette): 8 kg CO2/m²
      So by using the latest high-tech leatherette, you even the CO2-emissions are cut in half!
      3. The best to-come solution are indeed plant-based materials like Pinatex (based on pineapple leaves) or new materials based on mycelia (roots of mushrooms) or other innovative natural products. That’s the future.


      More special video episodes:


      1. A initial special video from Autogefühl considering the use of leather can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f91KgbVbJQ
      2. And another one right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMNgcLE0LDU
      3. Furthermore, you’ll find the footage of leather production also here, where people are walking in chemicals etc. and animals have to watch their friends being slaughtered in front of their eyes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JipYvuDsI6s
      timecode starting 27:46
      4. This is another video which very well summarizes the torture of leather production, shots taken at big farms which directly produce for the automotive industry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgHs239bAnE
      5. Please note that those videos are made by well-known journalists and cameramen who were not influenced by any animal welfare organisation, they supply their footage to the animal rights groups of course. I partly know the creators of the video footage personally and they are all authentic. You don’t have to search long to find cruel production environments anyway.


      Manufacturers reactions:

      We started the very first inquiry years ago, with the result that car manufacturers do not reveal their sources of animal skin AT ALL. If it all would be clean and happening without harm, why don’t they show it to us whereas they are showing us every other detail of their products? They have good reason not to, because there is no such thing as a clean animal skin production without harming cows, humans and the environment. The only thing a manufacturer can do is increase their effort for a better future, and we are helping with in-depth talks and interviews by presenting the increasing customer demand for sustainable luxury. Tesla was the first one to react in a major way now.

      So meanwhile, we more often also get feedback that a lot of manufacturers are working on leather-free interiors and are aware of the situation. E.g. Bentley, Mini and Kia have started vegan car interior programmes. Besides Tesla, Mercedes already shows major choices for sustainable interiors, you always have to pay attention to the details when ordering, of course - and we are happy to give advice. However, much has to be done still and the Autogefuehl community is massively helping in boosting the positive change!


      Help to raise awareness on this subject. Thanks!

      I like the "solution" with the fake grilles where the exhausts used to be. As he said - it really needs to be SOMETHING there. I think those grills marking the corners to give the rear some stance is just fine.

      Thanks for the review guys.

      However a few points against the Tarraco. The interior packaging based on my observations vs its cousin, Skoda Kodiaq, and this is coming from a 2 year old Ateca owner.

      No umbrella storage.
      No pop out door protectors.
      No second glove box on dash.
      Less cubbies and hooks in general.

      I know these things might seem minor But living every day with the car you might want to consider Kodiaq.

      Jesus Calderon

      Being a proud Seat Ateca user I think you made a very honest review of this car which is named after the roman empire era name of my hometown Tarragona. I totally agree with your opinions, I had to go for the 190 bhp 4drive diesel Ateca to match with the acceleration I had in my 2009 Opel Insignia 160 bhp automatic diesel, car with which I made 300k km without a problem, even I could tell you the clutch bitting point was more refined on the automatic Insignia than in the Ateca DSG which really surprises me... maybe its just a personal bias. My Ateca is on a 4 year renting and most likely after that I'll be going in the full electric direction so not many chances of me going for the Tarraco... I think you hit the nail on the head about the 7 seat thing, my old Insignia was 4,83m long so I know what is to have a difficult car to park on the street and that was one of the main things I looked in the Ateca, 4,32m so half a meter shorter with more than decent 5 seat/boot spacing. I would go again for a 4,80ish 7 seat car if rear places were "real" places for 1,70ish height people but seems to me the Tarraco compromise is not a good one cause families who really need a 7 seat car will go for more real options and if you don't really need the 7 seats, is it worth to "suffer" the 30cm longer Tarraco over the Ateca on a daily basis? Despite all that I love the Ateca driving dynamism (for a SUV) and quality (Excellence Plus).
      Thanks for the great review, keep 'em coming!
