What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For A well-built cabin, versatile seating, tidy handling and good visibility

Against Limited luggage space and limited availability

Verdict For the money, few big MPVs are as versatile or as enjoyable to drive and own

Go for… Any diesel

Avoid… 2.8-litre V6

Seat Alhambra MPV
  • 1. With all seven seats in use, you won’t be able to carry much more than a single suitcase in the boot
  • 2. Our favourite engines are the 1.9 diesels with either 110 or 115bhp
  • 3. Catalytic converters can fail on diesels
  • 4. The suspension and brakes can wear if the car has been used to cart heavy loads on a regular basis
  • 5. Verify the mileage is genuine - clockers like the Alhambra because they wear the miles well
