"Stretching the Altea makes all sorts of sense"Body 1
It's also a wholly sensible car. It's enormously gratifying that, after levering another 18.7 cm onto the Altea's rear end, SEAT's marketing crew didn't insist on seven seats to try to claw a way into another part of the mini-MPV market. Instead of building a seriously compromised seven seater, SEAT has instead come up with a beautifully resolved five seat family car and one that could, on the quiet, be one of the best buys in its class.
Although that 18.7cm stretch doesn't sound much, imagine an extra seven inches to cram in that extra bit of luggage. The Altea XL is a decent choice for a family that has forgotten how to pack light. Boot space rises from an already impressive 409 litres in the standard car to a cavernous 532 litres. With the Altea's rear seats shifted forwards, that can increase to 635 litres. You'll search in vain for a broadly similar car that can carry you, the kids and quite this much gear. If you're after the ultimate in capacity, book the kids a babysitter, fold the rear seats down and you've got 1,604 litres or room back there. Park up in Kensington and you could rent it out as a studio flat.
