The Seat Exeo gets a slight restyling for the 2012 Model Year. Both the sedan and station wagon models get the updates, with a new front beehive design grille and optional bi-Xenon headlights with LED daytime driving lights. The rear lights also get updated to LED technology. New wheel design in 17 or 18-inch models is available and on the inside we get new upholstery options and an updated leather steering wheel.
The engine range gets tweaked with better fuel consumption and improved CO2 emissions. The 2.0-litre TDI diesel engines with 120 and 143 hp run with 7 g/km of CO2 less, and a new Ecomotive unit is available which has less than 120 g/km of emissions. Diesel fuel consumption is down to 5.2 l/100 km thanks to new start&stop technology.
Seat Exeo petrol units available remain the 1.8 TSI with 120 hp and the 2.0 TSI with 210 hp (the latter gets 10 hp less when used with the automatic Multitronic transmission). Standard fit-out on the Exeo includes seven airbags, ESP and ABS and a system for automatically checking tyre pressure.
