The styling enhancements, boosted by new alloy wheel designs, underline the high value Exeo range's look. Meanwhile, improvements to the Seat saloon and estate's 2.0 TDI common rail powerplant now see emissions cut to 129 g/km. Economy is similarly improved, too, with the Exeo saloon now being capable of 57.6 mpg on the EU's combined cycle.
The latest upgrades to the Exeo come hard on the heels of the arrival of a new gearbox option earlier this year, with the addition of a Multitronic auto/sequential manual gearbox. The Multitronic 'box - with its CVT-based technology and stepped 'changes' offers both full auto mode and the option of sequential shifts via the steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
Looking to 2012, the Exeo family is in for further upgrades with the addition for the first time of Seat's start/stop technology on an Ecomotive model, which will help deliver more fuel efficiency.
The Exeo range, which is today offered with a choice of three turbodiesels or one potent turbocharged petrol engine, is priced from £19,285.
