Seat Exeo 2008-2013

SEAT presents the new sporty limousine Exeo in Paris


The first SEAT limousine in the B segment
The first SEAT model with common rail diesel engines of a new generation
SEAT’s first navigation with infotainment for MP3, MPEG4, IPOD, USB, Bluetooth


Martorell, 1st October 2008 – On the Paris Motor Show (04th - 19th of October) SEAT presents for the first time the new Exeo to the international public. By this new sporty middle class limousine, the Spanish car manufacturer extends its model range, offering for the first time a limousine in the important B-segment.

Erich Schmitt, the SEAT President affirms, regarding the target group for the new vehicle: “With the Exeo we are offering a car for dynamic and sporty drivers of the B segment. Furthermore now we have a vehicle for our current customers who are ascending from the A segment. The Exeo is also an interesting alternative for quality aware company car drivers who are looking for driving fun but who are cost aware and pay attention to low fuel consumption and low emissions.”

The most important characteristics of this about 4,60m long sporty limousine are the dynamic and elegant design, a very agile and secure conduction, high comfort and a dynamic and environmental sound engine range. The new EXEO will be launched with three petrol-engines (from 75kW / 102 HP to 147 kW / 200 HP) and three common rail Diesel engines of latest generation (from 88 kW / 120 HP to 125 kW / 170 HP). Five of these six engines are turbo engines. This means: more performance but less fuel consumption and less emission. All six EXEO engines fulfil the future Euro 5 standard.

Concerning the vehicle features the Exeo offers a latest generation navigation system, a new infotainment system with multiple functions and connections (MP3, MPEG4, IPOD, USB, Bluetooth), as well as for the first time a sun roof with solar cells powering a ventilation system.

The four-link front suspension as well as a trapezoidal link rear suspension assures sporty driving dynamics and agile handling.

The new Exeo offers top technology and top quality. The vehicle will be manufactured in Martorell (near Barcelona, Spain) with the same quality assurance processes due to which the Ibiza is in leading position in its segment.

The new SEAT Exeo will be available as of spring 2009 in three versions: Reference, Stylance and Sport with an entry price of about 22.000 Euros.

Sad to see, that Seat now must use the old Audi A4 body to build and sell more cars...

I need some explanation on the sporty side of this car...perhaps, I prefer it as a Seat than as an Audi

The front looks like a Mazda 3 with a little Audi (surpise, suprise ), and the back looks pure Audi.
Except for Spanish nationalists, the relevant question is;" Is this cheaper than a secondhand last gen. A4?
I doubt it for some reason.

Maybe limousine has a different meaning in Europe, but I don't think people here would call that a limousine. And that's about as sporty as a 300 pound person that plays WoW all day and struggles to walk around the block. I mean, maybe one could consider the 200 hp gas engine "sporty" but I dunno if I would. And if this is indeed based off of the A4, what incentive other than price do I have to buy this over an A4?

You could also buy a 2nd A4 when the A4 was on the market.

I personally think that for those people that want or need a new car the Exeo will be terrific value for money.

Nope it if was a Skoda I'd say the same.

In fact the old Superb was a similar case to the Exeo.
