The Seat Alhambra is a low cost people carrier that competes strongly with a number of much more expensive cars in its class. Originally released in 1996 it was updated in 2001 and again in 2010. It is an excellent choice for the larger family that wishes to keep motoring costs to a budget.
The Seat Alhambra has a very spacious cabin with comfortable seating for up to seven people. It shares many components with the much more expensive Volkswagen Sharan and has an excellent build quality.
There is a good choice of engines though some of the more thirsty powerful petrol units were phased out in later models. With the latest model there are only two engines available. These are a 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol unit that produces 148 bhp and a 2.0 litre TDi diesel unit which is available with either 138 or 168 bhp.
Unlike many alternative seven seaters in which the rear seats are suitable only for children, the Alhambra has proper adult seats in the back row, yet even with all seven seats in place there is still a generous amount of load space. However once you fold down all the rear seats you reveal a cavernous 2,297 of load capacity.
The Seat Alhambra is a good buy as a used car and it represents excellent value for money. Although a little unusual you will still find plenty of them for sale across the UK from approved Seat dealers, independent traders and private sellers. No matter where you are in the UK, Motors.co.uk could find a deal on a used Seat Alhambra near you.
Perhaps driving a Seat is not considered to be as prestigious as driving some other marques, but for anyone who is not too bothered about the badge the Seat Alhambra is exceptional value for money. From a cost benefit viewpoint there is nothing to beat it.
