The SEAT Altea freetrack line has grown with the addition of the 140 hp 2.0 TDI engine, making SEAT's allroader engine range more complete and versatile.
Powered by 140 hp 2.0 TDI
Seat has today announced that it will extend the Seat Altea Freetrack model range with a entry level model powered by a 2.0 TDI engine. The new 140hp 2.0 TDI version is available in both 4WD and front-wheel-drive and delivers some decent performance, like a top speed of 193 km/h, 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of 10.2 seconds and completes a 1,000 m dash in 32 seconds while consuming just 6.5 liters per 100 km/h on a combined cycle.
The four-wheel-drive system is a part-time one using a Haldex-type clutch arrangement. This means that the Altea Freetrack under normal road conditions uses only the front wheels, but if circumstances demand it, up to 50% of torque can be sent to the rear axle.
The 140 hp 2.0 TDI joins the 170 hp 2.0 TDI and 200 hp TFSI in the engine line-up. The Seat Altea Freetrack is the Spanish marque's first all-road vehicle and is based on the Seat Altea XL. The Altea Freetrack went on sale last summer after its Barcelona show debut in June.
