distance between left and right side of a vehicle influences on interior space for travelers as well as stability during driving. The width of the Seat Alhambra II is larger by 111 millimeters in comparison to the Toyota and is not really relevant. The average for the „van” class is around 1,821 millimeters and is by 80 millimeters larger than the same feature of the Seat Alhambra II.
Seat Alhambra II has 54 mm longer wheelbase in relation to the Toyota Previa III 2.4 158HP. A longer wheelbase gives more stable and comfortable ride, especially at higher speeds. It also gives more storage space. However, vehicles having a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
The Seat is 2 % longer in relation to the Toyota Previa III. Long cars have roomy cabin and also provide plenty of trunk space. While the Seat seems to be better option for families or drivers who value soft, smooth long-distance driving, the Toyota Previa III may be more appropriate to women because it will not make troubles with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
Model release date
Given that the Toyota Previa III's production began only 4 years before the Seat, the distance in technology used in both vehicles is not really big, however, the Seat Alhambra II may have slightly more modern solutions applied in it.
