What Car? Car of the Year 2011
The all-new Alhambra 2.0 TDI CR Ecomotive S has been named the best MPV at this year’s What Car? Awards.
The What Car? judging panel was particularly impressed by the Alhambra’s appealing mix of generous passenger and luggage space, ingenious features and refined driving experience.
The annual What Car? Awards were established more than 30 years ago and are widely acknowledged as being among the UK’s most influential motoring honours.
“The new SEAT Alhambra is a brilliantly-conceived people mover,” says What Car? editor-in-chief, Steve Fowler. “Space is key, but so are the clever features like the folding seats and sliding doors.
“However, it’s the way the Alhambra drives that impressed us most – particularly its comfort and refinement, and that it feels like a small family car on the road.”
“I’m thrilled to accept this MPV title on behalf of SEAT UK, and all our colleagues in both Martorell and Palmela where the Alhambra is built,” says SEAT UK Managing Director Peter Wyhinny.
“This important endorsement by the What Car? judges underlines my firm belief that the new Alhambra is clearly the most attractive full-size MPV on the market today.”
