Seat has a busy stand in Geneva, with the Exeo arguably its most important model on display.
The Exeo is basically a previous version of an Audi A4 but with a dash of sporty Seat styling. With the saloon version already on sale, the ST gets its first public showing here at the Geneva show.
The Exeo estate will be available with three 2.0-litre engines. They are 141bhp and 168bhp turbocharged diesels and a 196bhp turbocharged petrol.
Standard equipment will include Bluetooth, cruise control, steering wheel-mounted stereo controls, dual-zone climate control and alloy wheels.
Trims will be called S, SE, Sport and SE Lux, but the equipment levels have yet to be confirmed.
Options include a DVD-based sat-nav system, double-glazed side windows, heated front seats and a sunroof.
Prices have not been revealed, but are expected to start from 18,500. The first cars will be delivered to customers in July.

Why it's so good Frankly, the price. Buyers will be getting a quality car for silly money. We only wish Seat had done something more to freshen up its design.
