Seat Alhambra Gets a Subtle Facelift Too

After Volkswagen unveiled its facelifted Sharan at the Geneva Motor Show, it was only a matter of time until Seat did the same thing with the Alhambra MPV.

The Sharan’s Spanish sibling has received a similar makeover, both in terms of styling and equipment. The refreshed Seat Alhambra sports subtle design tweaks and new engines that make it up to 15 percent more fuel efficient than before.

The seven-seat MPV has also received new comfort and assistance systems, as well as connectivity and infotainment features.

Design-wise, the Alhambra gets new LED lights, a modified front grille and new wheel designs. Inside, there are new trim colors, a steering wheel design sourced from the Seat Leon and redesigned control elements. The trim levels have been reshuffled, with the Alhambra now offering four equipment lines: Reference, Style and Style Advanced.

Seat says the engine lineup has been completely redeveloped and all engines comply with the Euro 6 emissions standard. The petrol engine family comprises a 1.4-liter engine with 150PS (148hp) and a 2.0-liter unit with 220PS (217hp). Diesel options include a 2.0-liter unit offered in three states of tune: 115PS (114hp), 150PS (148hp) and 184PS (181hp). The former variant is the most economical, returning 4.9 l/100 km (48 mpg US or 57.6 mpg UK) and emitting 130 g of CO2 per km.

The 150PS diesel engine is also available as a 4Drive with permanent all-wheel drive. With the exception of the entry-level diesel, all engines can be combined with the DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission, which offers a coasting function.

The new Alhambra also gets the new generation of Seat Easy Connect infotainment systems, which include high-resolution touchscreen displays and faster processors. The MPV is fitted with the multi-collision brake system as standard, with other features on offer including the Blind-Spot Sensor, the DCC adaptive chassis control and new massage seats.

The facelifted Seat Alhambra will arrive at dealerships this summer, with pre-ordering starting at the end of May.
