2009 Seat Alhambra news, pictures, and information
New 140 hp 2.0 TDI engineThis 103 kW TDI power unit, wîth four cylinders fed by pump-line-nozzle injection units, delivers its maximum output of 140 hp at 4,000 rpm and a peak torque of 310 Nm at 1,900 rpm.
Partnered by a six-speed manual gearbox, this engine fulfils the minimum standards laid down by the European Únion's EÚ4 emissions legislation and powers the Alhambra to a top speed in excess of 192 km/h and from 0 to 100 km/h in just 12,2 seconds.
The 140 hp Alhambra 2.0 TDI will be in showrooms by the end of the year and will be available wîth any of the model range's trim lines: Reference, Stylance and Sport.
Stylance models also offer the option of a multimedia technology package which allows passengers to enjoy a film on DVD or connect a digital video camera, laptop, DVD or MP3 player or even a video games console. This multimedia solution will deftly underscore the Alhambra's character as 'an MPV for sporty families'.
The equipment will enable middle-row passengers in the MPV to enjoy the whole range of in-car entertainment. Two TFT colour screens incorporated into the back of the front-seat headrests will give access to all the thrills of multimedia.
The DVD player in the centre console will be operable by remote control, and second-row passengers will also have dedicated headset connections.
