The aesthetic changes are very slight, with the grille, the front bumper, the internal structure of the headlights and the LED tail lights being the most prominent changes. On board, the changes will be seen in the use of new materials, a new steering wheel (inherited from the Leon) and the possibility of equipping the new SEAT infotainment system with Mirror Link function.
The most important changes, however, are mechanical. The range of petrol and diesel engines has been completely revamped. All models now comply with the Euro 6 standard. The direct injection and turbo units are 15% more fuel efficient. The 115 hp or 150 hp Alhambra TDI, for example, leads its segment with fuel consumption of 4.9 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 130 g/km.
The diesel range starts with the 115 hp 2.0 TDI and ends with the 184 hp, 380 Nm 2.0 TDI, with the 150 hp 2.0 TDI being the most homogeneous version. In petrol, the offer will focus on 2 propuslores, the 1.4 TSI 150 hp and 2.0 TSI 220 hp, the latter associated exclusively with the DSG transmission.
In terms of equipment, the new Alhambra can now be fitted with the city emergency braking assistant, the blind spot indicator, piloted damping, seats with massage function and keyless entry.
The revamped SEAT Alhambra will arrive at dealerships this summer.
