Featured SEAT Review: ‘SPANISH SENSE’

Car and Driving's Independent Used Review of the SEAT Altea (2009 - 2015) Range

Added 6th November, 2015

You can't deny that MPV People Carriers are a good idea - but that doesn't mean every family will want one, even if cost and practicality suggest that they should. For some, driving around in a car of this kind is just too dull, which is where something like this Altea might strike a very welcome chord. Although this SEAT may leave some potential buyers scratching their heads and wondering what exactly it's trying to be, if you're not too hung up on vehicle definitions and prefer something that's fun, stylish and practical, it's well worth a look. We'd certainly want to stretch to this post-2009 version with its higher-tech engines. We might ignore the lengthened 'XL' bodystyle though, unless space really was a deciding factor. In standard guise, the Altea was much more of a looker. That fact, along with value pricing, might tempt you into looking at one, at which point you'll find that this car has much more to recommend it. We reckon this car is a brilliant used buy.
