SEAT Altea and Altea XL (2004 – 2015)

SEAT Altea Lifestyle

The SEAT ALtea & Altea XL are no longer available as new vehicles from SEAT. But they may be available from our Used Cars page

Adventure comes in all sorts of flavours. It might be expanding your horizons, or expanding your family. So when it came to designing the Altea, SEAT had to address some important questions. Like, can responsible be exciting? And can sensible really be adventurous? And the answer is….yes.

The Altea family: As hot on safety as they are on road holding. Spacious enough for growing families, easy to get in and out of and tough enough for the best that nature can throw at them. So whatever your plans, when your adventure begins there’s no need to say goodbye to style. Just say hello to Altea.

Think big – think Altea XL

Families grow. Children grow. The amount of stuff we need seems to grow non-stop, so that even simple journeys become epic endeavours. So, when big isn’t big enough, you need the Altea XL.

“The Altea is enjoyable to drive. It’s roomy, keenly priced and well equipped.”
WhatCar? Says

The Altea XL has excellent headroom and a higher, more commanding driving position. It is nearly 19 cm longer than the standard Altea which translates into an additional 123 litres of space and a total boot capacity of 532 litres. Although you wouldn’t think it from the outside, this makes the Altea XL one of the roomiest cars in its class.

Swooping lines, well balanced and assured handling and the outstanding levels of equipment and technical specification on the Altea range is unmistakably SEAT.

Trim and specification

The latest trim level for Altea and the XL is the iTech which boasts comfort and tech savvy in one smooth ride. The range of features includes a rooftop TFT LCD screen – perfect for entertaining plus, dual zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors and a built-in Bluetooth compatible, touch screen media system with satellite navigation.

Power with responsibility

The engines used in the Altea family combine power with responsibility, pushing boundaries in both performance and technology.

The environmentally responsible 1.6 TDi 105PS Ecomotive is fitted with a diesel particulate filter as standard, achieves a combined fuel consumption of 62.8mpg* thaks in part to SEAT’s Stop/Start technology. The engine emits CO2 at only 119g/km making it the greenest Altea engine. The Altea and Altea Xl are also available with a 1.6 TDi fitted with a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox and a muscular 2.0 TDi which produces 140 PS and yet can still deliver 57.6mpg*
