SEAT adds Multitronic gearbox to Exeo range

SEAT is to introduce a new gearbox to its Exeo saloon and Exeo ST estate range at the Paris Motor Show this week with the launch if a new Multitronic continuously variable gearbox as an alternative to the standard six-speed manual.

The efficient automatic gearbox is mated to the 143bhp 2.0 TDI common rail diesel injection engine and with a claimed average fuel consumption of 48.7 mpg, this variant is impressively economical for a CVT. The electronically controlled multitronic works with continuously variable ratios, enabling the engine to operate consistently at optimum efficiency. For dynamic drivers it offers both a Sport programme that results in gear shifts at higher revs, and a Manual mode controlled via steering wheel-mounted shift paddle

There have been other important changes to the Exeo range too, which now make the cars even more roomy and comfortable. Small but significant revisions to the front seat back and rear bench designs result in a larger rear passenger area. Thanks to the redesigned front seats and rear bench, room in the back has now increased by 44mm without any sacrifice in seating comfort or luggage space.

The new Exeo also has rear lights featuring LED technology, offered in combination with the xenon headlights. Full details of the revised cars' availability in the UK will be announced closer to their on-sale date.
