Seat introduces the Altea and Altea XL Copa editions

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 21, 2013

SEAT has made a trim level for the Altea and Altea XL ranges that come after the popular Leon hatchback Copa editions. It depends on the edition but buyers get equipment that’s worth from £1,100 to £1,500 for o additional charges. . Two trim levels come to market: S Copa and SE Copa. These levels are based on the standard S and SE specifications respectively.

The presentation of these vehicles represents a simplified Altea line-up. For example, the ‘S Emocion' trim was removed from the range, together with the 1.4 85 PS and 1.4 TSI 125 PS petrol engines.

What’s left are the most attractive Altea and Altea XL ranges that were made available. Both boast of having the S, S Copa, SE and SE Copa trims. Each is also offered with three engines, including: 1.2 TSI 105 PS, 1.6 TDI 105 PS, and 2.0 TDI 140 PS. DSG automatic is offered as an option on any of these diesel engines.

SEAT has come up with a model range that isn’t only simpler but with better equipment, every Althea is also highly efficient. The 1.6 TDI 105 PS Ecomotive, which has the lowest emissions with 119g/km CO2, is capable of offering 62.8mpg combined, placing it into the level of the VED Band C and getting a BIK rating of only 17%. SEAT has released a table to illustrate the specific equipment highlights of the S Copa and SE Copa editions.

Aside from the standard S specification, S Copa has the following features: a set of 16-inch ‘Elio' alloy wheels; a Bluetooth communication package that includes hands-free phone connection, steering wheel-mounted controls and two more stereo speakers; dual-zone climate control; front fog lights with cornering function; cruise control; passenger seat height adjustment. If we add up the price of these features, they come up to around £1,500 but SEAT offers it at no additional cost.

The well-specified SE trim level is joined by the outstanding SEAT Media System 2.2 in SE Copa versions of the Altea and Altea XL. SEAT Media 2.2 is comprised of satellite navigation, an SD card reader for music playback, a DAB digital radio tuner, Bluetooth hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, as well as a multi-function driver's display. These can all be controlled with the use of a five-inch colour touch screen.
