The SEAT Altea has been with us for a very long time and is not quite as enticing as it once was as a sporty take on a compact MPV – based on the SEAT Leon with a higher roofline and slightly raised suspension  – so SEAT are launching the Altea Copa (and Altea XL Copa) to try and breathe a bit of life in to Altea sales.

In the process of launching the Altea Copa, SEAT are also simplifying the Altea range a bit by dropping the ‘S Emocion trim along with the 1.4 litre 85 PS and 1.4 TSI litre 125 PS petrol engines, which leaves three engines to choose from in the Altea range – 1.2 TSI 105 PS, 1.6 TDI 105 PS, and 2.0 TDI 140 PS.

The new Copa Editions of the Altea are coming in S Copa and SE Copa trim, with the S Copa offering 16″ alloys, Bluetooth, Climate and Cruise and the SE Copa adding SEAT’s Media System 2.2 – which gives SatNAV, SD reader, DAB and 5″ touchscreen – rear parking sensors and auto lights and wipers.

SEAT say the S Copa gets £1500 worth of equipment at no extra cost over S trim and the SE Copa £1100 over the SE trim. Prices start at £16,425 for the Altea S Copa 1.2 TSI 105PS rising to ££21,980 for the Altea XL SE Copa with 2.0 litre TDI and DSG ‘box.

The SEAT Altea Copa is now on sale with first cars arriving in SEAT UK showrooms this month.
