Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Although the Exeo ST hasn’t been crash tested by Euro NCAP, the saloon version recieved a decent four-star rating (out of five) in official accident tests. The Exeo ST gets a comprehensive range of safety equipment including six airbags and Isofix child seat anchor points on every model. The rear seats also benefit from a top tether system to prevent child seats from spinning in the event of an accident.

Other features include an electronic stability programme to help control skids and ‘active headrests’ – designed to minimise the damage caused by whiplash.

Lift the SEAT badge at the back to open the tailgate and access the 442 litres of boot space that’s on offer. On its own that’s enough room for at least a couple of suitcases. The seats fold flat with the pull of a lever to reveal a load space of up to 1,184 litres – more than enough for the needs of most families. The seats also split 60/40 and all cars have a carpet-covered load area and four hooks for keeping larger items in place.

Extra practicality over the saloon includes a 12v socket in the boot, roof rails, a retractable load cover and storage under the front seats. Elsewhere inside the car there are a number of storage compartments, including a large glovebox that can double as a coolbox, door bins and an armrest.
