SEAT has announced that its new family car based on the previous generation Audi A4 will be called the SEAT Exeo. The name Exeo comes from exire, a Latin word that means “to go beyond”, which kind of makes sense since this is not a segment that the SEAT brand is commonly known in.
The new SEAT Exeo will come in both sedan and stationwagon form. It will go head to head against other European cars like the Ford Mondeo, the Renault Laguna and the Peugeot 407. It will be built in SEAT’s factory near Barcelona and will carry over much from the Audi A4 it is based on including its proportions, greenhouse, chassis, suspension, doors and glass.
