Which used Seat Exeo saloon should I buy?

Exeo buyers can choose from four 2.0-litre turbo engines - 118-, 141- and 168bhp diesels, or a 197bhp petrol. Our favourite is the 141bhp diesel because it provides the best balance between performance and affordability. It's also the only engine that can be specified with an automatic gearbox.

Entry-level S trim gets alloys, climate control, four electric windows, cruise control, Bluetooth and an MP3 input socket. SE adds automatic lights and wipers, parking sensors and front-seat lumbar adjustment, while Sport brings sports seats, tinted rear windows and different trim. SE and Sport can be upgraded with a Tech pack, which has sat-nav, leather upholstery and an upgraded stereo, while range-topping SE Lux cars feature everything from leather upholstery to bi-xenon headlights.

We think the best value engine and trim paring is the 2.0 TDI 140 in SE trim, which offers decent power, respectable economy and all the kit you're likely to need.
