MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – May 14, 2012: Seat UK is celebrating a double-digit tally of national awards for its widely-praised Alhambra with news that it has been crowned ‘MPV of the Year’ from respected specialist publication Diesel Car for the second time in a row.

The Spanish car maker’s exceptionally flexible seven-seater has been named best MPV by Diesel Car in the magazine’s annual Car of the Year Awards.

The latest honour joins important ‘gongs’ from such influential titles as What Car?, Auto Express, Fleet World and Fleet News – all of which have named the Alhambra their top MPV.

The Alhambra was praised by the experts at Diesel Car for its flexibility, value for money and high quality. ‘Everything about the Alhambra is planned for total convenience’ summarised the magazine in its awards issue.

Specialist motoring title Diesel Car focuses on the diesel car market but also includes reports on alternatively fuelled and eco-friendly vehicles. The well-respected magazine boasts a long list of established and influential writers and contributors who deliver the latest news on, and insights into, the diesel car market.

Welcoming the Alhambra’s brace of award wins, Seat UK Managing Director Peter Wyhinny said: ‘This fantastic award from Diesel Car is the tenth UK accolade the Alhambra has received, which shows very clearly how brilliant our seven-seater really is.

Available in S, SE or top spec’ SE Lux trim and priced from just 23,535 RRP, the award-winning Alhambra is offered with a choice of modern turbocharged petrol or diesel powerplants. All engines can be paired with either a six-speed manual or a smooth six-speed DSG auto that offers the extra flexibility of sequential manual operation via the standard-fit steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts.
