You forget it's a Seat
SEAT EXEO 2.0 TDI CR SE Tech 5dr  (Review date: 3rd July '12)
Rebadged A4 which feels just like an Audi, only cheaper! Quiet engine, great build quality and equipment levels. Handles well and delivers good fuel economy. Performance is reasonable - I had a 170 version before which was quicker but the fuel economy was not as good and it had problems putting power onto the ground, hence the decision to go for the 143 this time.
It needs a CD multichanger as you can't play a CD if you are using the sat nav. Overall though a much ignored quality estate at a resonable price.

Seat Exeo 2.0TDi Sport Estate is a bit of a dark horse. All the quality of an Audi A4 but without the silly price tag. Great economy, build quality and standard equipment. Excellent hands free for mobile phone, satisfying thump when closing doors. Handles well with taught suspension, great on the motorway and no rattles and quiet engine. Surprising that you don't see more of these on the road but that does make them that bit more exclusive.
Nothing in particular. If I'm being picky, rear passenger space could be a bit better & the arm rest gets in the way of the hand brake a bit.
Great car - bought as an x demo from Seat main dealer and is proving to be a bit of a bargain.

Great economy, build quality, standard equipment, exellent hands free for mobile phone, satisfying thump when closing doors!, handles well with taught suspension and no rattles.
Not so good:
Nothing in particular, but boot on estate is smaller than it seems & torque steer does not need much persuasion

Good Points - All of it, to be honest. Ideal size as a 'lifestyle' estate, fits into parking bays whilst still maintaining good load lugging space. Very well built with good quality materials. Sat Nav is a lot better than I expected. Excellent sound system. Engaging drive on B-roads with looong legs for the motorways. Overall very very happy
Negative Points - The i-Pod integration is quite poor but this is offset by the unit having two SDHC card slots, which is excellent for the music collection, the i-pod dock is used as a integrated i-phone charger only now. The Sat-Nav doesn't accept full postcodes but when you get used to the entry system and it's shortcuts its fine
Bottom Line - Purchased nearly new, and is proving to be one the best cars I have ever owned. Overall the exeo is a bit of a bargain !
seat's great estate

why buy an A4 when you can gat an Exeo for 10 grand less, all the usual stuff, build quality, pracricality and super economy that you expect from this Audi clone. I've had the car for nearly2 years with no trouble, the servicing has been trouble free, the dealer is great and takes great care of me while I'm there. So good it's hard to fault. 48,000 miles no trouble...

I purchase my Exeo last February after looking for an estate car that was good to drive but practice. I was impressed with the interior build quality and refinement. I have now done over 50000 miles and it has been 100% reliable and although servicing has not been as cheap as my previous Mondeo 2.2TDCi it is just as economical averaging 40-45mpg. I have no complaints about the way the front passengers are catered for, it is very comfortable and a good long distance vehicle. It handles and grips well although the steering is vague and not as fun to drive as a Mondeo or BMW 3 Series. The back leg room and boot space are poor but it works well as a Sports Tourer - two adults/two children. I miss the overall boot and rear footwell space of the Mondeo other wise it has been a great car.
My Seat Exeo ST 170 Sport is ace.
SEAT EXEO 2.0 TDI CR Sport 5dr  (Review date: 7th March '11)
After owning a Volkswagen Passat FSi Estate, the way that the Seat drives is a revelation. Hard to beleive that they both come from the same family background. Its fast, very fast for an estate, it handles well, but does suffer from torque steer under full power, but you get used to it. I love the way it looks, the superb wheels and the colour of mine has made people stop and look and ask what is it?
I use mine to run back and forth to the continent so 50 plus mpg goes a long way, the Passat would only manage 30mpg!
The only drawback it is a lifestyle estete so the space available is limited, having said that I would order another one tomorrow, but with more toys.
I cannot understand why you don't see more yet, maybe its still a secret for the chosen few.
Our Seat Exeo ST SE Lux 2010 model
SEAT EXEO 2.0 TDI CR SE Lux 5dr  (Review date: 1st March '11)
Our Seat Exeo ST 140 2.0TDi is used daily to travel over 120 miles to and from work.
It handles well in all weather, even the recent snow we've had, It's practical and fits everthing we need to take away with us for the family and dog when we go on hoildays.
Its cheap to run, gives good mpg and the road tax isn't to much a year... at the moment.
It drives well on the motorway and on the country roads, I think the only down side we have found is some torque steer when pulling away quickly from juctions. Other that that the car is a pleasure to drive on long and short trips.
