Motorists continue to be impressed with Altea range at Jennings

Posted on 29 Jul 2009

A particular range in the SEAT family is proving to be popular with customers visiting Jennings SEAT in Middlesbrough.

The main contributing factors to the continued success and popularity of the Altea range at the Cargo Fleet Lane dealership, is down to five simple facts – style, space, power , safety and affordability.

Customers wanting to get behind the wheel of an Altea and experience the uncompromised drive for themselves, can take their pick from a wide range of models, including the Altea, Altea XL and the Altea Freetrack.

Sitting at the very top of the Altea family is the Altea Freetrack model, which in 2007 was SEAT’s first model designed to be driven off road and is available in either a 2.0-litre TSI 200PS model or a 2.0-litre TDI 170PS.

Undoubtedly the most lavishly equipped of the range, the Altea Freetrack’s sophisticated multimedia system is a highlight, comprising a roof-mounted seven inch screen with RCA connection that allows a link to a DVD player, video games, a laptop computer and even an MP3 player.

Further standard-fit elements on the Altea Freetrack include dual zone climate control, rain sensor wipers, parking sensors, cruise control, trip computer, light sensor headlights and a CD MP3 stereo with steering-wheel mounted controls. Rear window blinds are also fitted as standard, which are stored neatly within the door when not required.

Safety equipment includes ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme), six airbags and a tyre pressure warning system.

Craig Johnson, franchise manager at Jennings SEAT in Middlesbrough, said;

“The Altea range offers something for everyone’s needs. Ticking all the boxes for style, safety, space and performance, in addition to affordability, the models are continuing to be popular with our customers.”

The Altea XL is the estate version of the Altea MPV and is nearly 20cm longer than the standard Altea model. The extra boot capacity is 123 litres bigger than the normal Altea’s and with the split-folding rear seats flat, the rear can hold more than 1600 litres of luggage.

Standard equipment on entry-level Reference models include air conditioning, an MP3 ready stereo, roof rails, cruise control, four electric windows, six airbags and traction and stability controls.

Craig went on to say; “The XL model appeals to those motorists who are impressed with the Altea’s sporty image, but who require additional space for luggage and indeed the ideal model for people wanting a sporty, but highly practical vehicle.”

The standard Altea, which is available in either Reference, Sport or Stylance models, has a wide choice of three petrol and three diesel engines.
