Seat Alhambra review

£30,415 - £38,270
Published: 13 Jan 2015


What should I be paying?

The price gulf between this and the Sharan isn’t as big as it could be – a few hundred quid model-for-model – so you’ll have to balance that against probable weaker residuals, which might affect monthly payments to the extent it’s actually no cheaper for private buyers. Otherwise, it’s as per the VW, so you’re using very familiar engines with alluring economy – all diesels hover around the 50mpg mark. The token 1.4 TSI petrol is actually decent on fuel, but if yours is a heavy burden of passengers and paraphernalia, you’ll miss the torque.

Equipment is lavish – all get three-zone climate, parking sensors and alloys. As it perhaps should be: the Alhambra isn’t quite as cheap as it was today, starting from over £25k. But even at this price, it’s worth it.
