2012 SEAT Exeo facelift

The SEAT Exeo (pronounced 'ex-AY-o') is a five-seat large family car, and flagship model, built by the Spanish car manufacturer, and Volkswagen Group subsidiary SEAT, S.A., with factory production commencing in December 2008.

Previously codenamed Bolero (though not to be confused with SEAT's earlier concept car bearing the same name) and internally designated Typ 3R, the name Exeo derives from the Latin word exire, meaning "to go beyond", breaking SEAT's recent tradition to name its cars after Spanish cities.

The Exeo is a D-segment model which is built on the Volkswagen Group B7 (PL46) platform, and is almost entirely based on the "B7" generation Audi A4, with styling changes to the front and rear by way of unique bonnet, front wings, boot lid, doors and exterior door mirrors. It incorporates interior trim from the A4 Cabriolet, and extensively uses B6/B7 A4 interior equipment and electrical components. To this purpose, the entire Audi B7 A4 production and assembly lines from Ingolstadt were dismantled and installed in Volkswagen Group's related SEAT factory in Martorell, Spain.

The SEAT Exeo was officially revealed at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, and at launch, it was confirmed to be available in just one car body style - as a four-door five-seat saloon/sedan (Typ 3R5). However, from August 2009, it also available as a five-door five-seat estate/wagon[7] called Exeo ST (Typ 3R9)(Sport Tourer).

The Exeo was available for purchase in Western Europe in early 2009, with a model lineup which initially included three petrol engines and two diesel engines, with a third lower-powered 88 kilowatts (120 PS; 118 bhp) diesel engine being added from September 2009.
In 2010 three new petrol engines entered production, these were the 1.8 TFSI 88 kilowatts (120 PS; 118 bhp), the 1.8 TFSI 118 kilowatts (160 PS; 158 bhp) and the 2.0 TFSI 155 kilowatts (211 PS; 208 bhp).

It is available with three different trim levels: Reference, Stylance and Sport.
