V6 engine for revised Alhambra

A V6 petrol engine is to be added to a revised SEAT Alhambra range, due to be launched in the UK in August. All new models will have a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but the 2.8-litre 204bhp six-cylinder unit will also have the option of five-speed Tiptronic transmission and a permanent four-wheel-drive system.

Prices and full specification for S, SE and Sport trims will be announced closer to launch, although every Alhambra will feature air-conditioning, anti-lock brakes, twin front airbags, remote central locking and electric front windows. Depending on the model there will also be electronic stability programme (ESP), satellite navigation, side airbags, leather or combined leather and alcantara upholstery, and electronic climate control with separate front and rear control.

Exterior changes bring the new Alhambra in line with SEAT family looks with clear lensed front headlamp frames in black and a central 'nostril' grille. Other petrol engine options are 2.0-litre 115bhp and 1.8-litre 150bhp 20v Turbo alongside two diesels - the 90bhp and 115bhp TDIs, the latter with pump injection technology.
