Seat introduces Alhambra 20th anniversary edition image

The Spanish automaker with German parentage has decided to pay its respects to the 20th anniversary of the Alhambra multi-purpose vehicle by releasing a limited series of the model with extra amenities.

The automaker has been hitting these days the headlines thanks to the Geneva Motor Show introduction of the company’s first sport utility vehicle in history, the Ateca. Now there’s also a limited-run people carrier joining the party as a way of celebrating the original model’s introduction that took place no less than two decades ago. The milestone is celebrated at first through a host of cosmetic tweaks: for example the Spanish model gains a new set of 17-inch alloy wheels dressed up in high-gloss black, the xenon headlights have been tinted alongside the side and rear windows, while more light will enter the cabin via the big panorama glass sliding roof. Inside the cabin the Alhambra 20thAnniversary Edition now comes nicely fitted with dark Alcantara upholstery and light corn silk stitching and the sport front seats also have a massaging function.

This limited series Alhambra also has keyless entry and a hands-free tailgate which can be operated by using the power of your foot (just wave under the tailgate) and the sliding doors are electrically actuated. There’s also a nice and wide kit of safety and assistance systems, such as blind spot detection, light assistant, traffic sign recognition, and sat-nav with optional Full Link smartphone compatibility. Seat has been coy on other details, such as production run or pricing.
