Taking into account its sister auto, the Volkswagen Golf also

The SEAT Altea is still one of the most brilliant looking little small transporters accessible in the UK. It’s productive, amusing to drive and accompanies a decision of two powerful diesel motors that offer an engaging equalization of execution and economy, so it’s shoddy to run, as well.

You get a huge boot and a roomy inside, yet its competitors, for example, the Ford C-MAX offer prevalent reasonableness and more space for travelers.

Truth be told, even the bigger SEAT Altea XL doesn’t get seven seats, which means it misses out to adversaries such as the Ford Grand C-MAX and Renault Grand Scenic. Like the Golf Plus, however, the Altea gloats strong form quality, great standard gear and moderate costs, making for financially savvy and fun family transport.

The Altea accompanies a decision of 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre TDI diesel motors nowadays – the petrols that were offered already have been stopped. Both diesels offer a blend of amazingly low running expenses and enthusiastic execution, which suits the Altea well.

There’s next to no body incline through corners, despite the fact that the suspension is generally delicate, while the brakes are responsive and the directing is exact. The Altea isn’t as much enjoyable to drive as a Ford C-MAX or as agreeable as a VW Golf Plus, however it feels strong, quiet and safe any speed. It simply doesn’t offer anything to separate itself from opponents – yet given its age, that might well be amended when the cutting edge auto shows up.

It likewise scored the full five-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests, doing particularly well for adult and child occupant protection and reasonably well for pedestrian protection. You get six airbags, traction control, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and electronic braking assistance as standard on all models.

It falls in a low insurance group and resale values on the used car sector are sensibly great on account of that liberal standard hardware and the truth it isn’t too costly to purchase as new.
