The Spanish brand is adding two new equipment levels to their Exeo lineup called the Seat Exeo Tech and Exeo ST Tech.
Featuring 3,270 GBP worth of equipment for which customers will only have to pay an additional 875 GBP the Seat Exeo Tech models will come fitted with a DVD-based colour screen sat-nav, an upgraded BOSE audio system, black leather upholstery plus an iPod connection.
The Seat Exeo Tech price starts 21,270 GBP for the 143 PS 2.0-litre TDI CR version and reaches 24,175 GBP for the 170 PS variant ST 2.0 TDI CR.
Seat press release :
SEAT is launching its best-specified cars yet with the showroom debut
this summer of new Exeo Tech and Exeo ST Tech models.
The luxurious new cars, which are available to order now and join the
existing Exeo line-up of S, SE, Sport and SE Lux versions, add
thousands of pounds worth of extra standard equipment to the already
well-specified models for the paltry sum of just £875.
Included as standard in the new SE Tech and Sport Tech cars are
DVD-based colour screen satellite navigation, BOSE premium audio
upgrade, luxurious black leather upholstery and an iPod connection in
lieu of the standard glove compartment-mounted USB port.
Together, priced as options, these highly desirable extras would
previously have cost an Exeo SE or Sport customer £3,270 yet the price
of the same Exeo SE Tech or Exeo ST Sport Tech, featuring the enhanced
specification, rises by just £875. Or, to put it another way, by opting
for a Tech model the Exeo buyer is saving a very handy £2,395 RRP.
|Model derivative||Price (RRP)|
|SEAT Exeo 2.0 TDI CR 143 PS SE Tech||£21,270|
|SEAT Exeo 2.0 TDI CR 143 PS Sport Tech||£22,235|
|SEAT Exeo 2.0 TDI CR 170 PS Sport Tech||£23,155|
|SEAT Exeo ST 2.0 TDI CR 143 PS SE Tech||£22,290|
|SEAT Exeo ST 2.0 TDI CR 143 PS Sport Tech||£23,255|
|SEAT Exeo ST 2.0 TDI CR 170 PS Sport Tech||£24,175|
Tailored, in particular, to the demands of fleet and business buyers
who make up the lion’s share of Exeo customers, the new Tech pack
includes the most popular selection of extras for buyers in this sector
and, crucially, adds significant value.
The BOSE premium sound system upgrade, for example, sees both saloon
and ST versions of the Exeo gain ten high performance BOSE speakers, a
digital amplifier featuring BOSE Digital Signal Processing, AudioPilot
noise compensation technology and five channels of customised
The financial proposition stands up, too. Building on the already
solid residual value predictions for the executive class SEAT (CAP
Monitor valuation: 31%, three years/60,000 miles, Exeo 2.0 TDI 143 PS
SE) it is expected that the new Tech versions will boast further
enhanced residuals which will, of course, please cost-conscious fleet
And company car drivers will be eagerly eyeing the calculator, too.
Previously, to have secured such a luxuriously specified Exeo they would
have needed to check several options boxes thereby driving up the car’s
RRP and, consequently, Benefit In Kind tax.
Now though, thanks to the arrival of the Exeo Tech specification, the
company car tax implications are negligible. In fact the increase in
BIK for 20% tax payers opting to drive an Exeo 2.0 TDI 143 PS SE Tech
over a standard Exeo SE amounts to just £33.25 a year, or a measly
£2.77 a month.
Nick Andrews, SEAT UK Head of Fleet and Business Sales, said: ‘Since
its launch just 12 months ago the Exeo, and its estate sibling the Exeo
ST, have been quietly building a reputation for great value among fleets
and business customers nationwide.
‘Now, with the debut of these luxuriously specified Tech versions,
I’m confident even more people will come to appreciate the exceptional
value provided by these executive class SEATs.’
