Keeping families safe, entertained and engaged on journeys long and short since 1996, the SEAT Alhambra has proven a firm favourite.
The SEAT Alhambra has been around for over 20 years. During this time, it’s made a name for itself as one of the best MPV’s/people carriers on the market right now. The first generation saw impressive sales figures as it combined a lot of the good elements from other people carriers on the market. In 2010, SEAT unveiled the second generation Alhambra, and it grew in popularity. This current generation is longer and wider than the previous, with more of an emphasis on accommodating large families and providing optimal comfort & safety for those inside.
If you’re looking to save money when buying a SEAT Alhambra, then it’s a good idea to buy one second-hand. The main thing to be wary of is that you make your purchase from an approved used SEAT Alhambra dealer. This ensures that you get the best value for money and will buy a car that’s been tested and in excellent condition.
As it happens, we are an approved second-hand SEAT Alhambra dealer in Crewe. So, we can help you find your ideal car depending on your budget and requirements. We have many options available at different price points, so feel free to enquire today to learn more.
SEAT offers the Alhambra in a variety of trim levels, depending on the needs of the driver. Some of these target economy, giving you fabulous value for money. Others offer you the height of luxury, providing additional functions and aesthetic features to make driving a joy.
The most recent SEAT Alhambra came in three levels of trim, occupying very different price points. Each option opens up fresh opportunities, allowing you to customise your new vehicle in practically any way that you like.
The SEAT Alhambra comes with different trim levels for you to choose from:
The SE is the base level, and you get all of the following as part of the package:
You get all of the above in the SE L, plus these extra features:
If you want to spend the most money, then you can upgrade to the XCELLENCE trim. Again, you have everything mentioned above, but with these additional benefits:
When buying your SEAT Alhambra, it’s a good idea to consider what trim you’re looking for. A lot of this will depend on how much you’re willing to spend, and how much value you place on certain features.
You can pick between a diesel or a petrol engine in this lovely people carrier. The petrol engine is a 1.4-litre TSI, but this is only available with the lower two trim levels. If you want the XCELLENCE trim, then you’ll need a diesel engine.
Speaking of which, there are two to choose from. Both of them are a 2.0-litre TDI diesel, but one has 148bhp, while the other packs more of a punch at 175bhp. If you want to have a more economical engine, then the smallest diesel version is the best option.
Naturally, there are loads of excellent features packed into the SEAT Alhambra. It’s kitted out with the latest car technology to improve safety and comfort. In fact, safety is a huge priority, and there are lots of little things to keep everyone safe.
Inside the car, you have lots of room for multiple passengers. There are no legroom issues in the back, and you have plenty of space in the boot. All in all, it’s the perfect family car if you have lots of children and need as much space as possible!

SEAT invested enormously in bringing the technology in the latest range of Alhambras right up to date. Here are some of the features you’ll find onboard:
SEAT Media System Plus is the Spanish brand’s latest iteration of its celebrated infotainment system, providing device connectivity, app integration and 3D navigation. When you press the primary menu key, the system presents you with a series of options on an intuitive interface. These include everything you might expect, such as radio, media, navigation, traffic, images, telephone, vehicle information, “full link” for mobile integration, sound and settings options. Playing music from your devices is easy. Just click the media icon, touch “source” and select your device. The car will then play the music from your device automatically until you tell it otherwise.
The quality of the audio equipment is also exceptionally high, giving you an immersive sound experience. SEAT invests heavily in speakers which are placed strategically around different parts of the vehicle for optimal audio fidelity.
The SEAT Alhambra allows you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey with fully-adjustable electric seats. The seats have 12-way adjustability with memory function that returns them to the desired position of the individual driver.
Fumbling around in your pockets for your car keys is a thing of the past with the KESSY Keyless Entry System from SEAT.
The keyless entry system only requires you to have your key on your person to unlock your vehicle. Sensors in the car detect the presence of the key fob and automatically open the doors, allowing you to keep your hands free for whatever else you need them for, whether it’s carrying bags of shopping or putting your skis in the back.
The KESSY system on the Alhambra will also automatically lock the vehicle once you walk out of range - the ultimate convenience.
The rearview camera makes driving the Alhambra in the city easy. When you put the car into reverse, an image of what is behind you appears on the infotainment screen in the cabin, giving you a perfect 360-degree as you try to fit into a tight spot.
The Alhambra comes with a nifty piece of technology - an electric tailgate - or handle-less boot. You simply walk up to the car, place your hand on the tailgate button, and it will open automatically for you with none of the usual hassles.
Getting in and out of the Alhambra is a breeze too. The sliding doors mean that you can still park the car in tight spaces without having to worry about the kids bashing the paintwork.
Rear USB Ports
The majority of new vehicles provide USB access to the driver and front-side passenger but rarely are there charging options for those travelling in the rear. SEAT wants to change this with the latest iteration of the Alhambra. It knows that people want to be able to use and charge their devices all the time, even if they’re sitting in the back. It, therefore, offers rear-facing USB ports, letting the kids in the rear (or anyone else) keep their devices topped up.
Just like the rest of the vehicles in the SEAT range, the Alhambra features a host of safety features designed to protect occupants. The number of safety features in this year's model is genuinely mind-boggling, making this a fabulous family car.
The latest Alhambra features more than seven airbags designed to cushion occupants in the event of a collision. The company hopes you never need to use them, but it is good to know that they're there. There are driver and passenger airbags, side-impact airbags, and bags in the rear to provide body cushioning in the event of a side impact.
SEAT has developed a new technology designed to alert drivers when they’re beginning to show signs of tiredness. This feature is always on, ready for when you need it most. If the system detects that you might be feeling a little tired, it’ll provide a “driver alert” and recommend that you take a break.
Front assist braking comes as standard with the latest Alhambra. The feature uses front-facing cameras to detect the speed of the vehicle in front. If it suddenly decelerates, then your Alhambra will brake if the system believes you don’t have enough time to react.
SEAT’s ISOFIX system is a godsend for parents. It allows them to safely mount compatible child safety seats, knowing that they will remain secure throughout the journey. It is, therefore, the perfect vehicle for people with growing families.
The latest Alhambra features a multicollision braking technology which takes into account the vehicles in front as well as behind when making emergency stop braking the decisions. The purpose of the system is to minimize rear-side impacts when braking because of an obstruction ahead.
The Alhambra range comes with technology that can spot vehicles in your blind spot as standard. It will also warn you if you drift out of the lane.
The Alhambra is, therefore, a highly versatile family car, offering a host of features that busy parents and kids will appreciate. Little details, such as custom cages for animals and rear USB ports can make all the difference in the world.
