The Seat Alhambra is classed as a large MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) which is produced by the Spanish automobile manufacturer Seat which has been part of the Volkswagen Group since it became a subsidiary of this group. This is a 7-seater vehicle, also known as a people carrier. This vehicle takes its name from a famous monument in Granada, Spain, which is now the way Seat name their cars; after famous Spanish things and places. This vehicle is seen as one of the best MPV’s on the market. It is very spacious, practical, drives well and is very reasonably priced. Does this sound like your experience of the Seat Alhambra?

Seat Alhambra History

The first generation (1996-2010) Seat Alhambra was introduced in 1996 and is very similar to the Volkswagen Sharan and Ford Galaxy, with who it shares many components and is built in the same place. The good thing about the Alhambra is that you get more for your money than with the other two supposedly ‘bigger’ names. Throughout the first generation it remained mostly unchanged apart from a makeover in 2000 which aimed at more of the Seat styling image.

The second generation (2010 - ) version is larger than its predecessor and has sliding doors to access the middle seats which is good in tight spaces. This vehicle scored well in the Euro safety tests, 5 out of 5 stars and is claimed to be one of the best MPV’s around. A 4x4 version was released in 2011.
