from madrid airport you'll need to get to atocha train station, where the trains for seville depart from. if you buy your train tickets ahead, then you can take a direct cercanias train for free from the airport (T4) to the train station, taking 30 mins.

It did not strike me that you were not aware that the train does not start from the Airport and now that myscreen has kindly made the necessary correction you should be all right. My main object was to say "use the train" and not a car.

Esmosier:

The AVE train will take you from 2.5 to 3 hours to get to Seville. I usually stay at the Hotel Becquer there, walking distance to most sights.

Buying a ticket on the spot is prohibitively expensive and not very wise. Also the train would be a novel experience to someone used to Amtrak. The OP wanted to know "Fast train or drive" .

Too late to edit again. Buying tickets on the day could cost much more than advance purchase. Prohibitive may have been too strong a word.
