For the second consecutive time, the SEAT Altea has been singled out by the German vehicle certification body DEKRA, which has just published a study on the most reliable models on the market in a total of seven categories.

The DEKRA study, Europe's most significant test involving the highest number of vehicles, analysed car reliability in three broad mileage ranges – 0 - 50,000 km; 50,000 -100,000 km; and 100,000 -150,000 km. The SEAT Altea finished first in the MPV category in the 50,000 to 100,000 km mileage range, ahead of the Ford C-Max and the VW Touran.

This exceptional result demonstrates the Spanish brand's leadership in its segment, as a result of its attractive model line-up with engines ranging from the 85 hp to 200 hp petrol and 105 hp to 170 hp Diesel units.
