The SEAT Exeo has been updated for the 2012 model year with minor changes – a revised face with new bi-xenon headlamps and LED daytime running lights, new alloy wheels, and improved leather on the interior.

There are also revisions to the engine bay, mostly to reduce emissions – the 2.0 TDI engine now emits 129g/km, with economy up to 58.9 mpg on the EU combined cycle for the sedan.

SEAT will also add a model with the Ecomotive badging later, optimised for fuel economy with features such as auto start/stop. SEAT targets a CO2 emissions figure of less than 120g/km for the Ecomotive version.
