The cheaper model comes with the 1.6 TDI rated at 105 PS and 250 Nm of torque. 0 to 100 km/h takes a while, 12 seconds to be precise, and once you’re passed that expect the car to top out at 187 km/h. Efficiency is good, with this relatively large estate requiring 4.5 l/100km on the combined cycle.
The other engine available with 4Drive is the 2.0 TDI rated at 150 PS, which needless to say is a lot faster. 0 to 100 km/h takes 8.7 seconds and the top speed is a respectable 211 km/h. What’s surprising is the fuel efficiency is barely affected. 4.8 liters will be required every 100 km/h on the combined cycle. That’s in ideal conditions, but the ST 2.0 TDI 4Drive sounds like a good motorway companion.
Seat didn’t reveal any pricing information, but expect a €1,500 markup on the car.
