The multi award-winning SEAT Alhambra continues its unprecedented awards success with news that it has been named ‘Best People Carrier’ by the highly-respected industry title Fleet News.
The SEAT scooped the coveted honour during last night’s 2012 Fleet News Awards ceremony at London’s famous Grosvenor House hotel.
The judges, comprising key members of the Fleet News editorial team and a number of fleet industry experts, highlighted the all-conquering Alhambra’s practicality, versatility and affordable costs.
In naming the SEAT ‘Best People Carrier’ the judges said: ‘The Alhambra is a full size people carrier that offers a good-size boot – even with all seven seats in use.
‘The seats are easy to fold flat, adding to the car’s versatility, while good road performance, competitive costs and low CO2 emissions combine to make the perfect package.’
The largest member of the growing SEAT range went on sale here in late 2010 and, since then, has secured near-universal acclaim from the nation’s motoring press.
The Fleet News accolade is no less than the ninth major national award to be taken by the Alhambra in the UK in a little over 12 months – with key titles as diverse as Auto Express and Fleet World agreeing that the seven-seater is, indeed, the best MPV on offer in Britain today.
Available in S, SE or top spec’ SE Lux trim and priced from just £23,525 RRP, the Alhambra is offered with a choice of modern turbocharged petrol or diesel powerplants.
SEAT UK Managing Director Peter Wyhinny was at the Grosvenor to celebrate the Alhambra’s latest success. He said: ‘To receive this trophy from Fleet News means a great deal to us at SEAT.
‘We know the Alhambra is a very impressive MPV and the near-constant stream of important awards such as this reinforces that belief.
‘I know the quality, value and versatility of our seven-seater is as compelling for business drivers as it is for private buyers which is why it is, increasingly, making a name for itself among savvy fleet customers all over the UK.’
