Seat Exeo wint Golden Steering Wheel 2009

Seat Exeo
Seat heeft de Golden Steering Wheel 2009 gewonnen met de Seat Exeo in het middenklasse segment.

46 voertuigen dongen mee in 6 categorieën, de prestigieuze award werd in Zwitserland uitgereikt. De jury bestond uit technische experts, professionele rijders (Mikka Häkkinen en Christina Surer) en de lezers van Autobild Zwitserland. De Exeo won vooral dankzij de stemmen van de lezers van het autoblad, de wagen moest het opnemen tegen de Audi A5 Sportback, BMW 5-Reeks, Infiniti G37, Mercedes E-Klasse, Subaru Legacy en Toyota Avensis. Het is dus best knap dat de Seat Exeo het tegen deze sterke opponenten heeft gehaald.

De Seat Exeo staat ondertussen al even in de showrooms en is beschikbaar als Sedan en als Break (ST). Onder de motorkap vinden we zes verschillende VAG motoren, drie benzines (1.6 – 102 pk, 1.8 turbo – 150 pk, 2.0 TSI 200 pk) en drie diesels (120, 143 en 170 pk uit een 2.0 TDI). Naast de winst van de Exeo scoorde ook de Ibiza ECOMOTIVE erg goed in de Green Steering Wheel categorie. Deze award wordt uitgereikt aan het meest ecologische model op de markt.

SEAT has won the Golden Steering Wheel 2009 award in Switzerland with the SEAT Exeo in the upper medium category. The prestigious award is a testimony to the quality, elegance and workmanship put into the manufacturing process and materials used on the Exeo.

The current edition featured a total of 46 vehicles competing in six categories. The voting panel included technical experts, professional drivers and readers of the ‘Auto Bild Switzerland’ magazine, whose votes decided the victory for the Exeo in its category. Two drivers, former F1 world champion Mikka Häkkinen and Christina Surer, evaluated parameters such as the cars’ dynamic quality and engine and brake performance. The remaining jury members focussed on the cars’ quality, technical aspects and trim details.

Several thousand readers participated in the selection, and most of the votes cast put the Exeo in first place among the competing midsize cars. The Exeo faced strong competition, including the Audi A5 Sportback, BMW 5 Series, Infiniti G37, Mercedes E Class, Subaru Legacy and the Toyota Avensis. The final list of the European Golden Steering Wheel winners will be published next month in Berlin.

This has been an excellent result for the SEAT Exeo, which is available in showrooms in both the sedan version and the ST family-size variant, equipped with three petrol engines -the 102 hp 1.6, the 150 hp 1.8 turbo and the 200 hp 2.0 TSI-, and three Diesel engines-the 120, 143 and 170 hp 2.0- fitted with the DPF particulate filter and common rail technology.

Furthermore, the Ibiza ECOMOTIVE also received an extremely positive evaluation with a nomination in the Green Steering Wheel category in Switzerland. This award is given to the most ecological models on the market, with special attention paid to the technical innovations that lead to fuel consumption savings and reducing cars’ CO2 emissions.
