- Seven seats
- Surprising performance
- Good amount of technology as standard
- Sliding rear doors
- Comfortable ride
Discover the benefits of the SEAT Alhambra in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
The Alhambra possesses unexpectedly strong performance figures, making it one of the best in its class to drive. This doesn't mean that comfort is compromised, the Alhambra can deal with bumps in the road with relative ease, which is always welcome on those long trips with the family.
With a simple choice of engines, the Alhambra offers a 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine capable of achieving upwards of 50mpg which is ideal for fully-loaded motorway journeys.
A less common 1.4-litre TSi petrol variant is also on offer, but opting for this may see the fuel economy fall slightly to around 40mpg.
Both engine choices possess hatchback-like 0 to 62mph acceleration times of around 10 seconds, providing a nice balance between driver engagement and passenger comfort, a trait that MPVs can sometimes lack.
Practicality and Running Costs
As previously mentioned, practicality is the Alhambra's strongest suit. The sliding rear doors provide easy access to the second and third rows, giving enough space for five adults to climb in.
With all seven seats up, the Alhambra leaves a modest 300 litres of boot space, rising to around 650 litres when folding down the third row seats. However, with all five rear seats folded down the Alhambra offers a colossal 2297 litres of boot space. We can see why SEAT named this vehicle after the Alhambra palace.
Running costs are also reasonable, with 20 being the highest insurance group. All service and maintenance requirements can also be taken care of at any Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The SEAT brand can be relied upon to provide quality interiors and the Alhambra follows suit. The dashboard, whilst large, has a variety of handy controls that are all within the driver's reach. Comfortable cloth seats are provided as standard, but opting for a higher specification will see the introduction of leather.
The Alhambra comes well equipped as standard, even the entry level Style offers a wide range of technology such as a Navi System, parking aids, and cruise control.
The full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating is reassuring when transporting the family thanks to a variety of available safety features, such as:
- ISOFIX mounting points
- Driver Alert System
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Blind spot detection
- Lane assist
- Park assist
Is the SEAT Alhambra right for me?
The SEAT Alhambra is a great all rounder, offering a practical and spacious interior, along with a good driving experience. The standard onboard technology is useful when on long journeys or attempting to squeeze this large MPV into tight parking spots.
If you're after something a little more engaging, the Ford S-Max has the sporty corner of the MPV market covered. Other options such as the Renault Grand Scenic and Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer also offer more futuristic styling in comparison to the Alhambra's traditional boxy look.
Nonetheless, the Alhambra is a reliable, high-quality, and affordable option within the MPV market.
