SEAT Exeo Official Images: Rebadged Audi A4 Breaks Cover

The latest in a long line of leaks today comes to us from Spain with the revelation of the first photos of the SEAT Exeo (pronounced ex-ay-o) or shall we say, SEAT’s version of the previous generation Audi A4. The new Exeo that was apparently designed during a short business lunch break somewhere in the central offices of the VW Group, is based on the A4 with the only visible styling differences being the new nose, tail and mirrors.

Details of specifications and powerplant options haven’t been disclosed yet, but expect to see a mix of engines from the previous Audi A4 and VW Group’s current line-up including the 2.0 TFSI gasoline and 2.0 TDi diesel units. SEAT’s new Ford Mondeo and used E46 BMW 3-Series rival will go on sale in Europe in early 2009 first in sedan and then in station-wagon body-styles.
