Pros & cons


Plenty of interior space, enough room for seven adults, economical diesel engines, solid interior, good value


Interior looks a little dated, many newer people carriers are more stylish, seats don't fold flat with the floor

With a spacious cabin, seven seats and proven reliability, the SEAT Alhambra makes an ideal car for larger families. It’s actually the sister car to the Volkswagen Sharan and the pre-2006 Ford Galaxy, so you can expect strong build quality and a robust interior. It may not be the newest design, but it’s good to drive and comfortable, while the frugal TDI engines mean it can be a good choice if you’re looking to keep running costs down.

What really appeals, however, is the fact that it’s such great value for money while all models come well equipped. This makes it a good buy – new or used.
