    Lucky you. I'm hoping it will be everything the Ateca is but with the front passenger legroom and Seat UK will stop being silly on Mapcare. I can handle another foot at the back :).

    Launch is in the evening.... no sign of a live YouTube feed. Going under #SeatTarraco

    Will you be online streaming it.... I'd like the launch like the Kodiaq one which I watched at home.

    If they happen to bung up the YouTube channel post up :). Couldn't find anything earlier of the Seat Twitter feed. I'll watch it in windy Wales.

    I'll make do with the concept of it being 12" longer... where they put those inches is the question. How much extra room up front.... can you drop the glove box without it hitting your knees like the Ateca etc. How the rear seat is configured if you don't have the third row in 4Drive mode etc.

    Looked like it was getting the newer infotainment screen perhaps from a video I saw. Mib2.5 like VW ?.

    @Tell I think you may have an issue with opening the glove box whilst sitting in the front...

    Thanks.... no sign of rhodium grey there. Urano is a solid grey. Wonder how close Indium Grey is to Rhodium Grey. See I'll be having to visit the local Seat and Skoda dealers to work out the colours.

    Reckon Indium Grey is a mistype by the Seat UK people... A bit of an old Seat colour... reckon they mean Rhodium Grey but I could be wrong.

    Wonder if they have given up not supporting Mapcare and saying it's far too complicated etc etc when Seat Ireland manages it along with most European Seat. VW and Skoda through unlimited for life in.

    Only having gesture control on the Plus units will irritate some. Given I'm getting fed up driving on old maps I was going to go for the standard unit. Would make my day to hear Seat UK say we are now selling Mapcare or just bundling in unlimited updates as VW and Skoda.

    Notice the nose looks longer than the Ateca which suggests that front legroom comes from pushing the dash and seats back. The back looks Ateca like apart from the bar and my reading suggests Audi pointing type of indicatir lights round there.

    Like some Ateca ones forced closed since they are so small with things to big for them.... I'll have to wait to smuggle myself into somewhere too see one as I did the Ateca :).... will have ordered one by then so won't bother.

    As requested we checkef the glove box opening and it didn't go well although I am 6ft3...

    As for colours I didn't ask for any specifics I'm afraid and the lighting made it very difficult to get a decent pic of both...

    Is there anything on the car you wanted to see pics of that the press release didn't show?

    Highlight of the night is the rear view mirror is sleek looking.

    You got 2" more than me... although on the Kodiaq and Allspace there is the extra legroom getting through so I'm hoping it will be similar. I do feel embarrassed in the Ateca for the front passenger what has less legroom than in a 17 year old or so Punto.

    Looks Rhodium Grey in those pictures so perhaps a typo in the press release unless Seat have abandoned that colour. It is close to one of the Audi colours.

    Obviously any pictures of that rear view mirror.

    Thanks.

    Mirror is very hard to get photos of but basically its about 95% glass.

    I like that, I always hated chunky plastic mirror surrounds
