2021 SEAT Alhambra
If you may spend most of your time in town, the 1.4-litre petrol (the cheapest model in the range) will undoubtedly be ideal. But, if you will be heading out onto the motorway more frequently, especially with a heavy load, then go for the 2.0-litre diesel, which can be acquired with a guide or automatic gearbox. There is a good array of petrol and diesel engines to select from, too, which have at the least 150hp. The five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP is reassuring in a family group car, whilst the Alhambra cements its position as a good-value choice insurance firms plenty of equipment on any trim level.

Later models came in three trim levels: SE, SEL and Xcellence. However, it's worth remembering that this is the priciest Alhambra to buy, being available only on top trim. The SE and SEL models may be had with the petrol or less powerful diesel engines, while Xcellence could be fitted with either of the two diesels. Picking the petrol means putting up with economy all the way to 36.2mpg and 159g/km CO2 emissions, so higher-mileage drivers will probably favour a diesel Alhambra. Probably the most economical option could be the less powerful diesel with an information gearbox, which manages up to 44.1mpg on average, while even the more powerful diesel with DSG gets 40mpg.
There exists a 1.4-litre petrol with 148bhp that's only available with a guide gearbox, plus a 2.0-litre diesel engine that creates 148bhp and can be had with an option of manual or dual-clutch automatic gearboxes. A 175bhp version of the 2.0-litre engine tops the number, but it's only available by having an automatic gearbox on the Xcellence trim level. The Alhambra is closely linked to the Volkswagen Sharan but was always a far more cost-effective choice than the VW. All trim levels were well equipped and it's practical, good to operate a vehicle and features a simple engine range.
Inside, there's a logical and clear dashboard but it's starting to exhibit its age, missing some features found in the latest SEAT models. There's plentiful head and legroom in the first two rows and enough space in the third row for adults – albeit not in quite the maximum amount of comfort. With suspension tuned purely for road driving, there's hardly any lean in corners and precise steering, but it's not so stiff that every bump is felt by passengers. Considering it's bigger than some SUVs, the Alhambra is impressive to operate a vehicle on a complicated road. Even when working with all seven seats, there's still a 267-litre boot, which will be about the luggage space you receive in a Ford Fiesta.
The Alhambra comes in three trim levels, with the entry-level SE getting a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with sat nav, plus Bluetooth, parking sensors and three-zone climate control. SE also features privacy glass, chrome exterior trim, folding door mirrors, cruise control, automatic wipers and headlights, aircraft-style fold-down tables and a 230-volt socket. Despite having seven seats, there's nothing minibus-like about the way it drives.
Naturally, the total amount of luggage space depends on what many seats you're using. All a corner seats drop with a simple pull of a lever and 2021 Seat fall flat to the ground, leaving an enormous 2,297-litre space – just around in a Sharan and only a little less compared to Ford Galaxy. In the same way importantly, you won't feel a lot of bumps and there's not too much body roll when you're going around corners, so the kids shouldn't feel car sick. But, despite having all seven seats upright, you've 267 litres at your disposal, that will be almost around you get in a Ibiza. Given that it makes such a fine family car, the good thing is that the SEAT Alhambra is stable, safe and inspires confidence when you're driving it.
Within the last few years of production, the SEAT Alhambra still counted the Ford Galaxy and Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer as its direct rivals, while increasingly facing the process from large seven-seat SUVs like the Skoda Kodiaq and Peugeot 5008 - including in-house competition from the SEAT Tarraco. The 2021 SEAT Alhambra is just a seven-seat MPV was a sales success in the nineties and noughties but its popularity has waned ever since then and far fewer of these are increasingly being launched as manufacturers give attention to fashionable SUVs instead.
Generally in most cars, a firm stop means less comfortable travel, but that's no hassle in the SEAT – it's comfortable and works well for squatting on the road. The 2021 Seat Alhambra works perfectly, partly as the suspension is firmly mounted. Even though SE, SEL, and Xcellence trims come in many different designs, they get 17-inch alloy wheels, and the tires and road noise are well separated from the interior.
On the top two trim levels, these are electrically operated, meaning younger kids can close them easily – and teenagers won't manage to slam them! Where in fact the SEAT Alhambra really stands apart, though, is so it has room enough inside for seven people – and even fully grown adults is going to be comfortable enough in the third-row seats. It's easy to get to them as well, thanks to a clever middle row of three individual seats that tumble forward with a pull of an individual lever. Then, once they're upright, you are able to slide every one of the seats backwards and forwards to generally share the space out however, you fancy. As if that wasn't enough, the vehicle is sold with sliding rear doors, which certainly are a huge help when getting people in and out in tight parking spaces.
