We first saw the mildly updated for 2012, Seat Exeo, at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show and now both the sedan and ST station wagon variants of the previous generation Audi A4-based model are available for order in the United Kingdom.
Prices start from £19,480 RRP (recommended price on the road) for the base sedan model fitted with an 118bhp (120PS) 2.0-liter turbo diesel. Other engine options include two more 2.0-liter TDI diesels with 141bhp (143PS) or 168bhp (170PS) and a 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged petrol with 208bhp (211PS).
All diesel units have been tweaked for 2012, offering improved fuel efficiently and lower CO2 emissions.
Seat said that it would likely add a more frugal and cleaner Ecomotive version with Start/Stop technology and a CO2 figure of less than 120 g/km to the Exeo’s range later in the year.
The styling changes for the 2012 cars include a revised fascia sporting new bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights (standard on Sport models, optional on the SE spec) along with new alloy wheel designs, a different steering wheel and revised upholstery options.
