C'est de novembre dernier, mais intéressant dans l'histoire du modèle !!http://www.leblogauto.com/2010/11/nouve ... -seat.html
Nouvelle déclinaison à 120 ch du 1.8 TSI, déjà proposé en 160 ch. Une version à puissance plus faible pour palier à la disparition du 1.6 102 ch qui tire peu à peu sa révérence dans l’ensemble du groupe Volkswagen. Forcément, avec 20 ch de plus et son turbo, le nouveau moteur fait gagner 12 km/h en vitesse de pointe (202 km/h) et 2 secondes sur le 0 à 100 (10″6) pour la berline. La consommation passe de 7,5 à 7,3 l/100 km en cycle mixte (175 à 169 g/km de CO2) pour la berline (7,4 l/100 km et 172 g/km pour le break ST).
Le communiqué de presse :
SEAT Exeo 120 hp 1.8 TSI – a new engine that completes the range
The basic SEAT Exeo version now comes equipped with the modern 1.8 TSI engine. This turbo-charged direct injection petrol unit delivers 120 hp and replaces the previous 102 hp 1.6. It is available with Reference trim and the SEAT Exeo with this engine under the bonnet is extremely cost-effective.
The following figures demonstrate the increased dynamic properties of the Exeo equipped with this engine compared to the previous 1.6. The 1.8 TSI churns out its maximum torque of 230 Nm between 1,500 and 3,650 rpm compared to 148 Nm at 4,000 rpm. At 10.6 seconds, 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is two seconds faster and top speed is now 202 km/h against the 190 km/h of the 1.6 (all figures refer to the saloon). In addition, average fuel consumption has dropped by 3% to 7.3 litres per 100 km in the saloon and 7.4 litres in the Exeo ST estate version.
Ah et puis aussi cette news de septembre... On se rattrape...
Pour ceux qui parlent pas la langue:
- Augmentation de l'espace aux jambes à l'arrière avec de nouveaux sièges redessinés (+44mm)
- Dispo du 143cv TDI en Multitronic
- Feux arrières à LED avec les Xenon et prise 230v sur la console centraleMore space and comfort in the Exeo range
• Backseat space significantly improved
• 143 hp 2.0 TDI CR now with multitronic transmission
• New LED technology rear light clusters and console-mounted 230 V socket
Alongside the electric engine SEAT IBE prototype on centre-stage and the new SEAT Alhambra, the Spanish brand is also showcasing the latest developments on the Exeo range at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.
The elegantly sporty SEAT Exeo and the dynamic Exeo ST estate are now even roomier, as there is more space available to backseat passengers after redesigning the front seats and rear bench. Further updates to the Exeo range include equipping the 143 hp 2.0 TDI CR Diesel version with the multitronic gearbox, thus bringing together outstanding performance with exceptional efficiency, in addition to new rear lights featuring LED technology in combination with the bi-xenon headlights and a new 230 V socket conveniently located on the central console.
At 4.66 metres long, the Exeo sets the standard for sportiness in the mid-range segment. It offers plenty of room for five passengers and a spacious luggage compartment. Thanks to the redesigned front seats and rear bench on both the Exeo and the Exeo ST, room in the back has now increased by 44 millimetres without any sacrifice in seating comfort or luggage space, offering even more comfort on long journeys.
Multitronic gearbox on the Diesel engine line-up
For customers seeking that extra level of refinement in addition to sporting prowess, the continuously variable multitronic presents a compelling alternative to the manual gearbox. This efficient, seven-speed automatic gearbox will also be found in the Exeo Diesel range mated to the 143 hp (105 kW) 2.0 TDI common rail injection engine in early 2011. With an average fuel consumption of only 5.8 litres per 100 kilometres (figure pending approval), this variant combines SEAT's trademark refined dynamics and high efficiency.
The electronically controlled multitronic works with continuously variable ratios, enabling the engine to operate consistently at optimum efficiency. For dynamic drivers, it offers a sport program that delivers gear shifting at higher rev speeds, and a manual mode controlled via steering wheel mounted shift paddles. The mechanical efficiency and broad ratio spread of this hi-tech gearbox ensure low fuel consumption and emissions.
The Exeo combines elegant design and distinctive styling with state-of-the-art technology and an outstanding level of quality. Thanks to its exceptional value for money, it represents an appealing choice for drivers that place just as much importance on driving fun and a premium look-and-feel as they do on efficiency, usability and budget.
