The new Seat Alhambra has been formally revealed.
Based on the New VW Sharan, which was unveiled last month, details of the Alhambra were released after the car was caught running undisguised by spy photographers.
Like the Sharan, the Alhambra will be built on VW’s new flexible MQB platform. As a result, the Alhambra is 22cm longer and 9cm wider than the outgoing model, and weighs less.
The Alhambra will also keep rear sliding doors, while the third row of seats can be moved back and forth 160mm to accommodate both adults and children. Both the second and third row of seats will fold flat, extending the load area from 885 litres in five seat configuration to 2297 litres.
Two petrol and two diesel engines will be available from launch - a 148bhp 1.4-litre TSI, a 197bhp 2.0-litre petrol and two 2.0-litre TDI units, available with either 138bhp or 168bhp.
In line with the Sharan, new optional kit includes bi-xenon headlamps with adaptive control and automatic headlight dipping, park assist, which automatically parrallel parks the car, a rear viw camera and a sliding panormaic roof. The sliding door can also be fitted with electric motors.
Seat has yet to set a launch date for the Alhambra.
Prices are expected to start from around £20,000.
