Seat Exeo Review

The Seat Exeo may be the brand’s first offer for the D-segment, but its overall design is actually a revision of the A4. But beyond being a renamed vehicle, the Exeo has much to offer in terms of new features and its four-figure price tag. It comes in several trim levels: from the S, SE, SE Tech, Sport Tech and Sport. There are also the ST-badge estates and Saloons that are also available in SE, Sport, and S trim levels.

Pros

The Exeo clearly derives most of its elements from the Audi A4. The roofline and flanks that aren’t similar with other Seat models highlight the vehicle’s inspiration. Instead the Exeo boasts of clean and crisp lines that work to the design’s advantage. In 2012, the latest generation featured daytime running lights, brand new wheel designs, an advanced interior trim, and bi-xenon headlights.

The interior also features several functional elements, such as a driving seat with good support and a steering wheel that’s rake-adjustable. Rear seat passengers will have no problems settling in; in fact the Exeo has more space compared to similar saloons. The boot capacity is also quite large at 460 litres and is comparable to its competitors. You can also enjoy all this comfort without any noise coming from the engine or the outside wind.

The 2.0 TDI is the Exeo’s strongest engine, reaching its 60mph sprint from standstill in just 9.1 seconds. Acceleration from 30 to 70mph happens after 8.8 seconds. We recommend this engine out of all the others, as it comes in several power outputs: 170bhp, 143bhp, and 120bhp. There’s also a petrol engine available: the 2.0-litre TSI that packs in 200 bhp.

The vehicle maintains the brand’s consistency in delivering keen handling. Thanks to its positive steering and precise feel, the wheel is quite responsive and offers front-end grip. Even when cruising on faster speeds, the Exeo still maintains such smoothness and guarantees an impressive ride. Firm suspension is able to absorb road bumps and minimize body rolls along bends.

Standard equipment varies according to the trim levels. The SE includes automatic lights and wipers, an acoustic windscreen, rear parking sensors, and a leather made gearknob and steering wheel. The SE Lux, S, and SE Sport all offer dual-zone climate control, USB connectivity for MP3 players, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, alloy wheels, cruise control, and adjustable heated door mirrors.

Cons

The interior design sports great ergonomics, but the design still appears to be dated in aesthetics. Function is the primary focus of the interior design—this could be a plus for the practically minded buyer, but the look does little to distinguish this aspect against the Exeo’s competitors. The ride, although very quiet, is hampered by the poor quality of the vehicle’s eight speakers.

The Exeo may have dated features in its cabin but that’s a minor flaw considering the quality construction. The diesel engines also impress, and as a vehicle owner you’ll appreciate the smooth ride and handling of the Exeo over the minor details. It may not aspire to stand out against others, but it does deliver where it matters.

SEAT Exeo

                In December of the year 2008, the Spanish automobile manufacturer and subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, SEAT S.A. created a compact executive car that was called the SEAT Exeo.  This was first give the codename Bolero, and the name Leon was derived from the Latin word exire which means to go beyond.

                The Exeo is assembled in Martorell, Spain and is created as a successor of the SEAT 132, which is a large family car. This compact executive car was displayed at the Paris Motor Show in 2008, and it was originally destined to be a five door estate. However, in 2009, this was given a four door saloon and a five door estate body style, and it has a front engine, front wheel drive layout. It is given a Volkswagen Group B7 platform, and this is considered to be part of the D-segment models in the European market.

                The SEAT Exeo is said to be a badge engineered version of the Audi A4 B7 generation, with a few external changes. The car was first sold in Western Europe early in 2009, and it has been available with three trim levels including Reference, Stylance, and Sport. The Exeo is recognized to be the Company Car of 2009 in Germany, Car of the Year 2010 in Finland, and Golden Steering Wheel award in 2009.
