Seat unveiled today the new generation Alhambra, a Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) that comes with new design, inside and out, and new improved engines. Compared to the old model, the new Alhambra is 22 centimeters longer and nine centimeters wider.
The 2011 Alhambra features an arrow-shaped bonnet, hallmark grille and highly distinctive front skirt, a sleek side profile with sliding doors, a muscular spoiler on the rear edge of the roof and expansive light clusters.
The new Alhambra is offered with both TSI and TDI engines, with power ranging from 150 HP to 200 HP for the TSI engines and from 140 HP to 170 HP for the TDI engines. The minivan also features stop/start system and brake energy regeneration and an SCR catalytic converter (Selective Catalytic Reduction), making even the diesel model one of the world’s cleanest MPVs.
The SEAT Alhambra is adding the new 140 hp 2.0 TDI engine to its diesel range to replace the 130 hp 1.9 TDI. This new version, which is already available on the SEAT commercial network, is sold with a manual six-speed gearbox and can be combined with the Reference, Stylance and Sport trim lines.
