7N Seat Alhambra gains subtle facelift, like Sharan

Seat’s design revolution does not begin with the facelifted 7N Alhambra people mover, which gains drivetrain and tech upgrades like those applied to the Volkswagen Sharan.

Design-wise there’s LED tail-lights, a new grille with a prominent Seat logo and revise wheel designs.

Under the bonnet, the new Seat Alhambra can be had with a 2-litre turbo-diesel engine. Three states of tune are available: 85kW (115PS); 110kW (150PS); and 135kW (184PS) with 380Nm of torque. The 110kW (150PS) diesel version can be optioned with 4Drive permanent all-wheel drive.

Petrol buyers can choose from either the entry-level 110kW (150PS) engine or a more powerful 162kW (220PS) motor with 350Nm of torque.

Every engine, except the 85kW (115PS) diesel, can be fitted with a dual-clutch automated transmission with engine-disconnect on coasting.

Tech available includes blind-spot monitoring, new touchscreen entertainment systems, automated braking, adaptive chassis control, massaging seats, and keyless entry and start.
