The new Seat Alhambra arrives in UK showrooms this week
The new Seat Alhambra arrives in UK showrooms this week. The Seat Alhambra is slightly longer and wider than its predecessor. Easy entry due to the large sliding doors (with optional electric operation) and plenty of generous luggage space puts the new Seat Alhambra at the head of the people carrier class.
Inside, seven individual seats can accommodate seven adults in genuine comfort with even third row occupants benefiting from generous knee and headroom. Today’s Seat Alhambra does away with the old-style individually removable seating concept in favour of a clever new fold-flat system that sees all five second and third row seats pivot into the car’s floor at the simple tug of a lever.
The new Seat Alhambra offers a new engine line-up, where the TSI and both TDI power units are equipped with direct fuel injection and turbocharging. The TSI unit delivers 150 PS, while the two TDI engines offer 140 PS and 170 PS. Depending on trim level, all three are offered with either a precise six-speed manual or sporty yet flexible six-speed DSG. The Seat Alhambra is capable of reaching 0-62 mph in just 9.5 seconds (2.0 TDI CR 170 PS manual) and a top speed of 130 mph (2.0 TDI CR 170 PS manual).
Prices start from £22,330 RRP, and this new model maintains Seat’s reputation for exceptional value.
