With the arrow-shaped bonnet, the characteristic SEAT grille and the powerful front skirt also sporting the arrow design, this large MPV That sends a clear signal it is part of the SEAT family. An electrically actuated rear hatch is available as an option. The SEAT Alhambra 4WD builds on the capabilities of the front-wheel drive models with a significant increase of in traction under all road conditions. Plus, the all-wheel drive system has been perfectly integrated into the Alhambra without significant changes to the chassis. The power to the rear axle via an angle drive flows on the front differential and the drive shaft to the Haldex coupling.

The driving force sent to the rear axle is dependent upon the pressure applied. The Necessary operating pressure is supplied by an electric annular piston pump with a pressure accumulator maintaining a constant oil pressure of 30 bar. As a result, the Haldex coupling can operate via an extremely Quickly electronically controlled valve, a clear benefit in delivering aspects difficult, driving Situations. The second and equally Important advantage - Earlier all-wheel drive systems Could React only to the differences in rotational speed front and rear Between the wheels.

One focus of SEAT's development work on this car was on the intelligent and highly flexible seating concept. Moreover, the second-row seats can also be positioned sideways, with integrated child seats available as an option. The driver seating position combines the best visibility with perfect ergonomics. The luggage compartment is also more than generous - measuring 2.430 liters, almost 2.5 cubic meters, when the second row of seats is folded in the five-seat version.

The SEAT Alhambra 4WD is equipped with the 2.0 TDI with 103 kW / 140 hp and six-speed manual gearbox. It combines powerful performance with excellent efficiency. It is also equipped with an SCR catalytic converter (Selective Catalytic Reduction), a technology That makes the SEAT Alhambra 4WD one of the world's cleanest Diesels. In an extreme case and to avoid spinning front wheels, the system sends all the driving force to the rear. Under constant driving conditions, on the other hand, very little power is required at the rear axle. Under braking, the coupling opens completely, with no power flowing to the rear. This all-wheel drive system can exercise the full extent of its capabilities as soon as handling systems like ABS, ESP and EDS kick in on slippery road surfaces.
