The Ecomotive is a Plain Jane version of the SEAT Exeo powered by a fine diesel engine, for those who care more above average fuel consumption than 0 to 60 time. The new version is now available in the UK market with a 2.0-litre TDI common rail diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, and in two 120 PS and 143 PS guises. Both versions manage 62.8mpg on the combined cycle and emit just 117g/km of CO2.
Despite being an eco-minded car, the Exeo Ecomotive comes with a generous amount of kit, depending on the trim level you choose between the S, SE, SE Tech, Sport, and Sport Tech. Even the base S model comes with 16-inch ‘Morfeo’ alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, cruise control, voice-activated Bluetooth and a multi-function steering wheel.
The richer SE trim includes rain sensing wipers, automatic headlights, rear parking sensors and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Sport adds front sports seats, bi-xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, tinted rear windows and gloss black dashboard inserts. The Tech pacage, available with SE and Sport trims, includes satellite navigation, black leather upholstery and a BOSE stereo of startling audio clarity and punch.
Pricing for the SEAT Exeo Eco starts at £20,040.
