The SEAT Alhambra has made its way into SEAT's ecological model range with its new ECOMOTIVE version.
Seat has yesterday revealed the third model in their ECOMOTIVE range, the Seat Alhambra MPV. The Spanish people mover is powered by a 140 hp 2.0 TDI engine with Diesel Particular Filter (DPF) and emits just 159 g/km of CO2, compared to the 175 g/km CO2 emissions of the regular 2.0 TDI Alhambra.
Seat has made a few changes in order for the Alhambra to achieve these figures, firstly the DPF and the electronic management but also a new six-speed transmission and low-friction 196/60 tires on 16 inch steel rims.
Performance has not suffered because of the environmentally conscious changes, instead the diesel powered MPV is quicker of the mark to reach 100 km/h then its non EcoMotive sibling, 11.9 seconds and 12.2 seconds respectively, and comes standard with a sport suspension.
