The new Altea Freetrack is design study that highlights the direction that Seat will be taking for a new crossover vehicle based on the Altea XL. The 4WD Freetrack concept picks up an electronically controlled multidisc system from Haldex and rides on a new suspension system that sits 310mm above the ground. A production version is expected to be revealed in the following months, which is likely to feature less radical styling and a lower ride height.

The concept vehicle comes with 19in wheels shod with 255mm rubber, and a spare wheel mounted on the rear door. It has seating capacity for four passengers and a full leather lined interior. The dash layout resembles that of a production car except for the electronic screens mounted in the instrument cluster that controls the navigation, audio and air-conditioning.

Powering the Freetrack is the 240hp 2.0L TFSI motor from the Leon Cupra, while a production version is expected to get several gasoline and diesel engines ranging in displacement from 1.6 to 2.0L.
