Review

The original Altea was the model that spearheaded a new generation of cars from Seat and now it and its larger brother the XL have been revised to match the newer styling of the range.

The car has had some subtle exterior touch-ups featuring a new grille, front bumper and larger headlights.

At the back the broader rear window stretches across the full width of the newly designed hatch, providing better visibility.

There are also new rear light clusters, a smaller brand logo and a revised rear bumper.

The changes become more apparent in the cockpit with a revised centre console and sportier seats to increase the level of quality.

The Altea is the third best-selling car in the Seat UK line-up behind Ibiza and Leon.

There’s a high level of standard equipment and this, twinned with the fact it’s cheaper than its main rivals, Peugeot 5008, Ford C-Max and Citroën C4 Picasso, adds up to a tempting proposition for customers looking for quality and value.

Price £16,150
