Sneak Preview: SEAT Reveals Exeo Facelift before Frankfurt


The upcoming 2012 SEAT Exeo receives a facelift, which will be debuted at Frankfurt next month.

SEAT has given the Exeo sedan and ST models some cosmetic changes and engine upgrades just ahead of its Frankfurt debut next month. The facelift includes the front fascia receiving bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights, which are standard on the Sport trim but optional on the SE. The pair of SEATs will make their way to Frankfurt next month and will arrive on the market with new alloy wheels along with better interior trim and several other tweaks here and there.

SEAT has already fitted the Exeo with a Multitronic automatic/sequential manual transmission earlier this year. The car's new transmission is based on CVT technology. Shifts can be made in full auto mode as well as the option of sequential shifts thanks in part to the sportier steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. SEAT will also introduce new start-stop technology to the Exeo in order to make it more fuel efficient with reduced emissions. Under the hood, power will come from Volkswagen's widely popular 2.0-TDI common rail diesel.

The next generation SEAT Exeo will start from £19,285 and will make its debut in less than a few weeks at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.
