This incredible car has a great deal to offer, so it is hardly a surprise that it was voted 'Best MPV' by WhatCar? in the Car of the Year awards during 2011, 2012 and 2013. The new SEAT Alhambra offers extensive space, handy accessible features, state-of-the-art sporty performance and an impeccable safety record.
The Alhambra is back with a stronger design than ever before. The versatile and powerful nature of the car is expressed by its distinctive profile. A full-bodied character with dynamic lines and defined wheel arches, the Alhambra has a strong presence. The purposeful arrow-shaped contours point towards your destination with strong front lights guiding your way. Bi-Xenon headlamps with an adaptive front lighting system are available for enhanced visibility and optional sliding rear doors provide ease of access, so entering the Alhambra is a breeze.
Equally dynamic under the bonnet, there are a range of state-of-the-art petrol and diesel engine options. Every unit incorporates direct fuel injection and turbo charging technology. The 2.0-litre manual and automatic diesel units offer a powerful 170bhp boost whilst the Ecomotive model has low emissions at 146g/km as well as optimum fuel economy in its class, delivering 50.4mpg. To further cut costs SEAT's innovative automatic start/stop function can be incorporated to save fuel. The strong stance of the Alhambra allows you to tow heavy loads which can be fixed to the car with the optional towing hook.
Once you are in, you can take advantage of the ergonomically designed interior and flexible seating system, which allows a multitude of passenger and storage configurations. With vast interior proportions the Alhambra comfortably seats seven passengers. If you need to seat youngsters, integrated child seats are also available. The middle row seats can slide in both directions and all seats have a split fold option, which creates extra space for transportable items if needed. For extra convenience an electrically-operated rear hatch function can be installed, making loading even easier. To ensure maximum comfort within your interior world, the three-zone Climatronic feature regulates the temperature in all areas of the car.
Safety is a top priority, which is why you are equipped with up to nine airbags, which includes a knee airbag for the driver, and there's a sturdy ISOFIX tethering system to keep the little ones secure. The Electronic Stability Control system includes trailer stabilisation and electronic brake assistance. A tyre pressure monitoring display let's you know if you are low on air and alerts you when you need to top up. Additional extra features include the Tiredness Detection System which detects unusual steering movements and alerts the driver that it may be time for a break.
