Presented at Paris Motor Show, the new Seat Exeo is the first limousine in the B segment. With a total lenght of 4, 60m, 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). All six EXEO engines fulfil the future Euro 5 standard. Inside, the new 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.

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 car will be manufactured in Martorell (near Barcelona, Spain), and will be available as of spring 2009 in three versions: Reference, Stylance and Sport with an entry price of about 22.000 Euros.
