The SEAT Exeo may not be as flash as some upmarket rivals but is an overall great value for money vehicle. We discuss some of the car’s best points in our article today.

Safety

The SEAT Exeo saloon will not let you down when it comes to the element of safety. A driver’s knee airbag along with active whiplash headrests are perhaps the most standout features. The stability control comes as a wonderful feature helping to keep the car on track if it is essentially off balance. Front, side and curtain airbags come as standard.

The car is very secure too with deadlocks and immobiliser included as standard.

Equipment

With all SEAT Exeo’s, you get stylish alloy wheels, cruise control, electric windows, climate control along with MP3 connectivity ability.

Upgrading to the SE variant will give you front seat lumbar adjustment which is a great feature in terms of practicality. There are also rear parking sensors along with automatic lights and wipers.

The Sport version adds special sports seats that come with bi-xenon headlights and rear windows which are stylishly tinted.

With the SE and Sport upgrades, there comes a satellite navigation system with leather seats throughout the car.

Performance

There are four 2.0 litre turbo engines. These include a 118 BHP, 141 BHP and a 168 BHP diesel. The petrol version comes in form of a 208 BHP version. The most popular choice is the 141 BHP variant as it is able to offer brilliant running costs as well as a satisfying performance.

Running costs

The diesel models are your best bet for keeping costs as low as possible. The diesel SEAT Exeo’s are able to achieve 50 MPG and more depending on the package.

The SEAT Exeo is based upon the previous generation of the Audi A4 which in itself makes the car great value for money too.
