The All New Seat Altea Freetrack

In terms of equipments, the FreeTrack comes with the most contemporary ones can find, particularly in the safety areas. It comes standard with six airbags, and the rear seats are well equipped with Isofix anchoring points for child seats. Among the other electronic systems include the ABS, TCS which kicks in to prevent the wheels from spinning when accelerating on slippery surfaces and ESP + DSR with EBA and tyre pressure warning which detects the quality of braking at each axle and takes the necessary action by sending a small signal to the steering wheel to keep the vehicle on course.

Apart from its 225/50 tyres on 17-inch alloy rims, other standard equipments are like front and back fog lamps, roof rails, electric heated door and mirrors, height and reach adjustable steering wheel, CD/MP3 stereo radio with steering wheel controls and AUX-in connection, twin chrome tailpipe, leather steering wheel and gearknob, dual zone climate control air conditioning, cruise control, one-touch electric front windows, rain sensing windscreen wipers, trip computer, ‘coming home’ headlight function, remote controlled central locking, electromechanical power steering, front and side airbags with front passenger airbag deactivation, Isofix child seat anchoring points and height adjustable front seats with lumbar control.

Included in the SEAT Freetrack also is a new SEAT Mediasystem Navigator, which is typically a Siemens manufactured DVD mapping information that is fitted with about 28 Western European countries, a 6.5″ colour touch screen and a 30 Gb internal hard disk, to slash route planning calculation times. It also includes other functions like audio adjustments and volume control. Alternatively, one can also include a 7″ TFT screen multimedia system which folds down from the car’s roof lining, plus RAC connections for DVVD players, game consoles and MP3 players. Too bad, this brand is not available in Malaysia.
