SEAT has introduced its latest sedan, called Exeo, in Paris. This is the first model in years that doesn't have a name from a Spanish town but it still might seem familiar to you: it's a rebadged previous-generation Audi A4. Hey, Europeans can rebadge like the best of the Chinese, after all! Why did Seat do this? Because no resources were ready to develop an all-new sedan and the classic name for the SEAT sedan, the Toledo, was used for a complete sales disaster mini-MPV with a strange hatch based on the Altea. At least the Exeo gets the latest generation VW engines, which will be all Euro V-compliant. The diesel versions will now have common-rail diesel technology instead of pump-injectors, as seen in the 6th generation VW Golf/Rabbit and range from 120 to 170 hp. SEAT models are already on sale in Mexico and rumors have it that SEAT could be sold stateside, aiming the Latin market.
