If you’re looking for an accomplished people carrier, look no further than the SEAT Alhambra. This versatile MPV boasts a roomy interior and comes very well-specified, too.
Any people carrier worth its salt should provide easy access, and the Alhambra is no exception. The vehicle features sliding rear doors, making it as simple as possible for passengers in the second and third rows to get in and out. The flexible interior features three full-size second-row seats that slide forwards and backwards independently and also recline to accommodate occupants of all shapes and sizes. While there is room for adults in the third row, it’s absolutely ideal for a trio of younger travellers. As well as a wealth of storage options throughout, the Alhambra possesses a 658-litre boot space when five seats are left in place.
The Alhambra comes with a range of engine options, including a 1.4-litre 148bhp petrol unit, which has the pace and energy to keep up with urban traffic while providing a settled ride at higher speeds. Offering optimal efficiency is a 2.0-litre 148bhp diesel engine, which returns a5.3l/100km and produces emissions as low as 135g/km. The latter can be selected as an option with entry-level SE trims and comes as standard with top-of-the-line XCELLENCE grades.
A host of technologies is included to make your drive convenient. Not only is there a media system for your entertainment, there’s also a rear view camera for safer reversing, USB ports in the rear for the kids to charge their devices and KESSY Keyless Entry, which negates the need for you to search for your keys before getting in the vehicle.
The Alhambra comes with a maximum Euro NCAP crash-test rating and a host of passive safety features. For instance, airbags are fitted throughout the cabin and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points feature on all three second-row seats. One of many driving aids includes rear-facing sensors that help make parking straightforward.
