The Top Gear car review:Seat Alhambra

£25,925£36,750
7/10
Overall verdict
Seat’s most complete car. It has no real weaknesses – but we just know you’d rather have the VW…
 

For: 

VW quality, class and space at Spanish prices

Against: 

Those Spanish prices aren't as low as they used to be

Overview

What is it?

Ah, poor old Seat. Forever chastised as the leech of VW Group, with its showrooms full of re-badged VWs and Audis. Used to be Fiats, though, so count your blessings. In a parallel universe the Alhambra could have been a Multipla. As it is, it’s a slightly cheaper VW Sharan, and that means it’s a very functional, very massive seven-seat MPV. Not even remotely sporting, despite Seat’s brand goals, but then the Ford S-Max has sporty MPVs wrapped up anyway.
