SEAT Glossary

All the details.



The wheelbase is the distance between front and rear axles, measured respectively at the centre of each wheel.

A relatively long wheelbase with respect to the car length, a characteristic of SEAT models, provides a good amount of space in the interior of a car, makes for short body overhangs, improves directional stability and reduces pitching of the body. With a long wheelbase the suspension is better coordinated, meaning a particularly comfortable ride.
