​ SEAT has claimed the number one spot for Best MPV in the 2016 Tow Car Awards​.

The new SEAT Alhambra, of which the latest generation was introduced this spring, pulls off its first title. The seven-seat Alhambra has sustained its impressive reputation as best all-rounder on the market, building on more than a dozen independent award titles in recent years.


‘The SEAT Alhambra is a very good MPV and a very capable tow car. With its combination of a high kerb weight, powerful engine and an extremely flexible cabin, it is a worthy winner.’

David Motton, Tow Car Editor of Practical Caravan and Award judge.
