There are two choices with the Seat Altea, the regular and the XL. Our choice is the XL version due to the fact that it comes with a boot that offers more space, without boosting the price tag up by much.
There is just one petrol option and this is the 1.2 turbocharged with 103 horses. While it’s not blazing fast, it does offer flexibility that manages to keep a decent performance. There is more choice for diesel engines and in our opinion the 1.6 litre offering 103bhp comes out on top.
The 1.6 litre offers plenty of pace, it’s affordable and the running costs are good. If you want even more performance you may choose the 2.0 litre offering up 138 horses and this has performance that is even smoother.
The entry level versions of the Seat Altea have plenty of equipment; this includes electric windows at the front, Auxiliary in and CD player. If you go for the S Copa trim you get alloy wheels, cruise control, climate control and Bluetooth support. The SE trim adds-in electric windows in the rear and leather steering wheel, while the SE Copa has automatic wipers and lights, along with sat-nav and DAB radio.
