The 2021 SEAT Alhambra MPV uses the innovative Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) to provide the responsiveness and efficiency you’d expect from a manual transmission, in a convenient and relaxing automatic system. The technology behind this system was developed by Volkswagen, and has been adopted by SEAT for use in its latest models, to great effect.
Using a unique twin shaft system, the DSG gearbox is able to “anticipate” the next gear change, with each shaft alternating between gears. This provides much smoother and faster gear changes than any manual transmission could achieve. In fact, SEAT estimate that each gear change takes less than four-hundredths of a second.
Drivers of 2021 Alhambra automatic vehicles are given the option between two different modes of driving: Sport and Normal. The Sport driving programme, as you might expect, leaves longer gaps between gear shifts, resulting in higher revs and a more sporty sound and feel to the driving experience.
Automatic versions of the new SEAT Alhambra are available in all trims, from Standard SE, SEL and Xcellence model. The latter option includes shift paddles on the leather steering wheel, enabling drivers to change gear manually if required. All automatic options of the SEAT Alhambra are combined with a powerful 2.0 Litre diesel engine, and cost around £1,300 more than the equivalent manual transmission model, but will only add a few pounds a month to your lease deal. Given the increased efficiency and resale value provided by automatic cars in general, it is likely that this additional cost would be balanced by savings made over the lifetime of the car.
