Find out more about the latest MPV from Seat, based on the Volkswagen Sharan.

Seat has pulled the cover off the all-new Seat Alhambra MPV.  The Spanish automaker, owned by Volkswagen, will release their own version of the VW Sharan later this summer.

Four different direct injection engines will be on offer, including two TSI models that produce from 150 to 200 horsepower (110-147 kW).  Meanwhile, the two turbodiesels produce 140 and 170 hp (103 and 125 kW).  Efficiency was a factor with the vehicle's development, as all four engines are fitted with stop/start, along with kinetic energy recovery from the brakes. 

The new Alhambra measures in at 4.85-meters long, 22cm longer than the previous model.  This gives more room for either an added third-row of seats, or excess cargo, with sliding doors for easier access.  Doors can be operated electronically as an option.

Other revised features include a new sliding sunroof that is three times larger than the previous version.  Seven airbags, anti-lock braking, and stability control all come standard.

You can read more about the five-, six-, or seven-seat Seat Alhabra in the press release below.
