SEAT Alhambra

SEAT UK is today celebrating a double-digit tally of national awards for its widely-praised Alhambra with news that it has been crowned ‘MPV of the Year’ from  respected specialist publication Diesel Car for the second time in a row.

The Spanish car maker’s exceptionally flexible seven-seater is today named best MPV by Diesel Car in the magazine’s anual Car of the Year Awards.

The latest honour joins important ‘gongs’ from such influential titles as  What Car? Carbuyer.co.uk, Auto Express, Fleet World and Fleet News – all of which named the Alhambra their MPV of the year.

The Alhambra was praised by the experts at  Diesel Car for its flexibility, value for money and high quality.  ‘Everything about the Alhambra is planned for total convenience’ summarised the magazine in its awards issue.

Specialist motoring title Diesel Car focuses on the diesel car market but also includes reports on alternatively fuelled and eco-friendly vehicles.  The well-respected magazine boasts a long list of established and influential writers and contributors who deliver the latest news on, and insights into, the diesel car market.

Welcoming the Alhambra’s brace of award wins, SEAT UK Managing Director Peter Wyhinny said: ‘This fantastic award from Diesel Car is the tenth UK accolade the Alhambra has received, and shows very clearly how brilliant our seven-seater really is.

‘I’m especially pleased to see that its impressive qualities have been recognised by specialist titles in both the fleet and diesel sectors, and I’m sure the fast-growing band of happy Alhambra owners will agree with the judges’ verdicts.’

Available in S, SE or top spec’ SE Lux trim and priced from just £23,535 RRP, the award-winning Alhambra is offered with a choice of modern turbocharged petrol or diesel powerplants.  All engines can be paired with either a crisp six-speed manual or smooth six-speed DSG auto that offers the extra flexibility of sequential manual operation via the standard-fit steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts.
