The German tuners JE Design modify all things from the Volkswagen Group. This time it’s given Europe’s econo-car the Seat Exeo a unique aero kit, quad tipped exhaust and a set of 19 inch rollers. Transforming the rather bland Spanish sedan into an aggressively tuned sports car.
Seat unveiled at the Paris Auto Show the Exeo, a new middle class sedan. Seat calls the car a "limousine" but more in the sense of long-wheel base and less in the "Jeeves bring the car around" idea. The Europe only Exeo will go on sale in spring of 2009 at a price of €22,000.
Seat is part of the Volkswagen group, and like the rest of its offerings, the Exeo will be based on other designs in the Family. But for the first time the Exeo will spawn from a premium platform, the Audi A4. The new Exeo will be launched with three gas engines (from 102 HP to 200 HP) and three common rail Diesel engines of latest generation (from 120 HP to 170 HP). Five of these six engines are turbo engines. All six Exeo engines fulfil the future Euro 5 emissions standard.
Seat launched the first official web page of the future Exeo that will make its world debut in 7 days at the Paris Auto Show. The web page reveal a few teasers of the sedan that show us the front grille, the rear and the front-end. The Exeo will be offered in both sedan and station wagon version.
The rear of the car is clearly inspired by the new Audi A4 and the front keeps the same Spanish design first used in the new Ibiza.
Exeo will compete with models like Ford Mondeo, Renault Laguna and Alfa Romeo 159. It will be built in Seat plant from Martorell, Spania starting 2009.
