Seat Alhambra facelift shown image

Seat has officially introduced the facelifted version of the Alhambra MPV which has received a series of interesting tweaks.

After Volkswagen has pulled the wraps off the facelifted version of the Sharan during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show last month, time has come for Seat to do the same with its MPV, the Alhambra. The model in question has received several minor visual tweaks which include the redesigned radiator grille, the new LED headlights, the new design for the alloy wheels and that’s about all. The interior design is now getting the new chrome trim, the revised center console and a new steering wheel, so if you were hoping for some significant upgrades, you will be in for a big surprise.

“Alhambra has seen a year of record sales in 2014. Innovation, driving fun, utility and safety are the keywords for the new-generation Alhambra, making it the perfect partner for an active lifestyle. Its compelling concept combines the very best functionality and state-of-the-art technology with an excellent standard of quality and workmanship. Plus, in true SEAT fashion, it offers incredible value for money”, said the chairman of the executive committee SEAT, Jurgen Stackmann.

The 2016 Seat Alhambra is now coming with a modified engine lineup which includes the 2.0 liter TDI diesel burner, rated at 115 HP (85 kW), returning just 4.9 liters of fuel every 100 km and emitting 130 g/km of CO2. There is also the 150 HP (110 kW) and the 184 HP (135 kW) 2.0 TDI, while the petrol units include the two TSI powerplants, with 150 HP (110 kW) and 220 HP (162 kW). All engines can be connected to the DSG transmission, except for the entry-level diesel, and all of them are complying with the Euro 6 emissions standards.
