SEAT 1500: spacious, comfortable, robust and stylish The ancestor of all SEAT models in the mid-size class is the SEAT 1500. It had a striking and angular trapezoidal design, plenty of chrome trim, diagonal white-wall tires and was more spacious overall, yet more affordable than many American vehicles of the time. SEAT 132: a discreet revolution Shorter, lighter, more aerodynamic: Compared to the SEAT 1500, the SEAT 132 represented a major step forward and was more in tune with the spirit of the times. While the top speed of the SEAT 1500 was still 130 km/h, the SEAT 132 with its 1.8-liter engine reached 170 km/h and 160 km/h in its 1.6-liter version. SEAT Exeo: the perfect re-entry When production of the 132 was discontinued in 1980, SEAT initially left the mid-range segment behind. It was not until 2008 that the decision was made to re-enter the market. The new model was also to have a longitudinally installed engine, but this time it was to offer a wider range of power units and transmissions. SEAT Tarraco: an SUV for new customer requirements The great era of SUVs began. Shortly after the market launch of the SEAT Ateca compact SUV in spring 2016, it quickly became clear that customers wanted spacious vehicles with a large trunk, plenty of comfort features and the highest safety standards.
