Seat Alhambra Ecomotive

Seat is becoming fast one of the most ecological car manufacturers. The Seat Alhambra has just entered into the ecological model range of Seat with its new ECOMOTIVE version. The model is capable of low CO2 emissions and also low levels of fuel consumption; these combined, make the Spanish car manufacturer one of the most committed to environmental sustainability. The customers will fall into cost saving of 4.75% registration tax bracket. To be more precise, this is actually the first model in its segment to feature CO2 emission levels of 159 g/km, because of its efficient 2.0-liter TDI engine capable of developing 140 horsepower. All the output is being transferred to the wheels through an efficient 6-speed transmission that features longer gear ratios, especially fourth and fifth, which also contributes to lowering the former figure of 175 g/km. The average fuel consumption figures of the Alhambra ECOMOTIVE equal only 6-liters per 100 km. The fuel consumption in the urban and extra-urban areas is now 7.8 and 4.9 liters per 100 km respectively. The new Seat Alhambra features the DPF particulate filter as standard. Diesel engine emissions contain around 0.3% of toxic gases such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, sulphur dioxide and nitric oxide as well as soot. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have fitted the model with 16-inch steel rims covered in low friction 169/60 tires. The 2.0-liter TDi engine can deliver 310 nm of torque which enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less time than the standard model, so in 11.9 and to reach a top speed of 195 km/h. The new Seat Alhambra ECOMOTIVE will be available in the Reference Plus trim level with a new and incredible standard equipment level. The model also features as standard sports suspensions providing a more efficient, sporty character.
