SEAT have introduced the Altea and Altea XL Copa editions to the current line-up and are available to order now, priced from £16,425.
Two trim levels have been introduced to the Altea and Altea XL line-up, the ‘S Copa’ and ‘SE Copa’. Based on standard ‘S’ and ‘SE’ specifications respectively, their introduction brings about a simplification of the Altea line-up: 'S Emocion' trim has been deleted from the range, along with the 1.4 85 PS and 1.4 TSI 125 PS petrol engines.
The SEAT Altea range now comprises S, S Copa, SE and SE Copa trims, and three engines: 1.2 TSI 105 PS, 1.6 TDI 105 PS, and 2.0 TDI 140 PS. DSG automatic is available as an option on either of the diesel engines.
SEAT Altea S Copa
This applies to both the Altea and Altea XL - priced from £16,425 - Adds to the ‘S’ model - 16-inch 'Elio' alloy wheels; a Bluetooth communication package including hands-free phone connection, steering wheel-mounted controls and two additional stereo speakers; dual-zone climate control; front fog lights with cornering function; cruise control; passenger seat height adjustment. This adds around £1,500 worth of extras for nothing over the ‘S’ trim.
SEAT Altea SE Copa
This applies to both the Altea and Altea XL models - priced from £17,785 - Adds to the ‘SE’ trim - SEAT Media System 2.2 in SE Copa versions of the Altea and Altea XL. SEAT Media 2.2 incorporates satellite navigation, an SD card reader for music playback, a DAB digital radio tuner, Bluetooth hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, and a multi-function driver's display, all controlled via a five-inch colour touch screen. Plus rear parking sensors, automatic windscreen wipers and lights, and an auto-dimming rear view mirror. Worth around £1,100 over then standard ‘SE’ trim but at no extra cost.Published 18 January 2013
