WATCH: TV Presenter Mairead Ronan tries to guess the mystery car


JOE’s Eric Lalor and Mairead Ronan went on a little test drive in this hilarious video.

The pair are known for their acting, presenting and comedic abilities rather than their driving, but that might be all about to change.

In this fun promotional vid, they take to the road in a secret undercover vehicle, which turns out to be none other than a SEAT Tarraco.

“I’ve replaced the kids with the absolute brat Eric Lalor”, Mairead says as she climbs into the driver’s seat. During one hell of a road trip, they explore everything the vehicle has to offer.

The SEAT Tarraco is available with 20″ inch alloy wheels, which Fair City’s finest Lalor describes as “slick as hell”. It also boasts front LED lights with dynamic indicators, and a state-of-the-art digital cockpit display.

There are three Isofix points — one in the front passenger seat and two in the second-row outer seats — allowing for the easy fitting of child seats. Mairead believes the spaciousness of the boot is an absolute “gamechanger”.

Inside the car there’s so much on offer, including a wireless phone charging unit, digital cockpit, voice control, and a 360 degree camera. Dancing with the Stars champion Mairead is particularly impressed with the heated seats, whereas the sat nav is what does it for our Eric!

Above the driver’s seat is an SOS emergency call feature. In the case of an emergency- emergency services will automatically be sent to the car’s location. And finally, it has self parking technology, so you can sit in comfort as it does all the hard work for you.

“I love it!” Mairead exclaimed afterward. “The safety features, the way it feels, the height I’m at when I’m driving”. Wait for her delight right at the end, it will have you in stitches!

The SEAT Tarraco is available to test drive in all 24 SEAT dealerships nationwide. It is available from €349pm with 0% PCP Finance* and a three-year service plan. Visit for more details.
