The Exeo is competitively priced, and the 141bhp diesel makes a lot of sense for company car drivers. It averages more than 50mpg and its carbon dioxide emissions are lower than many rivals'. Exeo resale values are no better than reasonable. On all these counts, the VW Jetta does slightly better.
Seat Exeo Saloon quality & reliability
The Exeo's interior shares many parts with the old Audi A4 range, but that's no bad thing, because it was always one of the classiest compact executive cars around. Everything in the Exeo's cabin has a built-to-last feel, and the materials are nicely finished. On the downside, Seat didn't perform very well in our latest Reliability Survey, and Audi finished mid-table.
Seat Exeo Saloon safety & security
Every Exeo has stability control and electronic braking aids to help you stay out of trouble. Front, side and curtain airbags, a driver's knee airbag and active anti-whiplash front head restraints are all on hand in case a smash is unavoidable. Deadlocks, an immobiliser and an alarm help guard against theft.
