SEAT Altea Freetrack

GENEVA — SEAT is trying to come up with innovative ideas to entice customers bored by the company's increasingly monotonous lineup. The latest attempt is an off-roader, based on the seven-seater Altea XL. It was previewed as the Altea Freetrack at the Geneva auto show.

SEAT Altea Freetrack SEAT went one step further than its parent company, Volkswagen. While the German carmaker dresses up most of its models to resemble rugged off-roaders, there is more fashion than mud-plowing technology behind such vehicles as the CrossGolf and CrossFox.

The Altea Freetrack, on the other hand, has, in addition to the usual body cladding and raised ground clearance, an all-wheel-drive system with serious hill-climbing ability. The car's width has also been increased by 2.4 inches.

Power comes from a 2.0-liter, 240-horseplwer four-cylinder direct fuel-injection engine. A production version is expected later this year.
