Seat reveals new Alhambra
The first images of Seat’s all-new Alhambra MPV have been released ahead of its launch this summer.
The Seat Alhambra is the Spanish manufacturer’s version of the Volkswagen Sharan, but it offers similar dimensions, good handling and high equipment levels for an expected lower price.
Standing at 4.85 metres from bumper to bumper, the Seat Alhambra is longer than the older model, and offers increased luggage space of 885 litres. This can be expanded to 2,297 litres when the back row of seats is folded down.
Access to the rear seats is through sliding rear doors with an optional electric option. Inside, the seats can be configured to seat two, five, six or seven.
Seat has introduced new petrol and diesel engines to the Alhambra range. The TSI petrol unit delivers 150HP and the two diesel units offer 140 and 170PS. An optional DSG dual-clutch transmission is also available.
This translates to average fuel consumption of 51mpg and low CO2 emissions of 143g/km in the MPV – some of the best figures in the class.
Prices have not been announced yet, but it is expected to be lower than the VW Sharan and Seat has promised ‘exceptional value-for-money’.
