It's interesting that SEAT have recently launched the Altea Freetrack4 with the more powerful 170PS diesel engine from the outset, whereas the Tiguan won't get it until Summer '08. Does anyone know if it is a different engine destined for the Tig?

Are the effective choices from SEAT (FreeTrack) / VW (Tiguan) / Audi (Q5) all based on the same platform?

Had a call today from the SEAT dealer offering their Altea Freetrack4 for a few days...taking them up on it more to see how the 170ps diesel performs as the Tiguan demo will be with the 140ps version...be nice to compare though. Getting it next Wednesday through to Friday

Well, had the 170ps diesel and it is very sprightly. 0-60 in 8.7 or so and a top whack of about 126. Very similar performance figures to the 177ps BMW X3 2.0d...not so keen on the SEAT itself...intrusive engine and road noise, but that sort of performance in the Tig should be very appealing.

Here's hoping


Trying out the X3 in an hour or so.
