SEAT Altea Freetrack prototype

The SEAT Altea XL[1] is an 18.7 centimetres (7.4 in) longer variant of the normal SEAT Altea, a five-door five-seat compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV), with increased luggage capacity compared to the standard Altea.

The SEAT Altea Freetrack[2] is dimensionally similar to the Altea XL, but is designed as compact sport-utility vehicle (SUV). It features raised suspension for increased ground clearance and larger plastic bumpers, and plastic wheel arch and sill extensions - which all increase its exterior dimensions.

All versions of the Freetrack, except the 2.0 Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) 2WD, are equipped with a Haldex Traction based on-demand four-wheel drive (4WD). The 4WD versions are also called SEAT Altea 4.

Although the Freetrack is available with 4WD, it is not marketed by SEAT as an "SUV". However the Freetrack could be seen as a competitor for small SUVs from other marques.

The possible internal combustion engine choices are almost the same as for the normal Altea.

When the car was launched is was available in a very uncommon intense yellow. This colour was also seen on models in several promotional brochures. The colour scheme is no longer available (last verification August 2010).
