Seat says the MPV will have an increased power output and be up to 15% more fuel efficient than the model it replaces. UK order books are set to open in May.
All petrol and diesel engines in the new line-up are Euro 6 compliant, consisting of two 2.0-litre diesel engines and a 148bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine.
The 2.0 TDI engine will be offered with 148bhp and 182bhp power outputs, with the lower-powered variant returning claimed average fuel economy of 57.6mpg and 130g/km of CO2 emissions. A DSG dual-clutch automatic gearbox will be available with all engines.
Seat’s new generation of Easy Connect infotainment system will come with the new Alhambra and brings with it a high-resolution touchscreen and sat-nav. Buyers can also choose from new trim colours in the interior, and the steering wheel design has been carried over from the Seat Leon.
An autonomous braking system that prevents further accidents after a collision and a blind spot monitor will be available, as well as adaptive chassis control, while massage seats are also offered along with keyless entry and start.
Cosmetic changes are subtle and include a fresh grille design, new wheel designs and LED rear lights.
Full pricing and specifications will be released closer to the launch date.
