Ecomotive models feature SEAT’s ultra-efficient engines. Although the engines have very similar power and performance figures to their non-eco siblings, lots of tiny little changes have been made to drastically improve fuel economy – a special turbocharger provides the power when it’s needed. It’ll use much less fuel than other turbos when you don’t though. A Stop/Start system is fitted to most Ecomotive models – this will help you get the most out of every last drop of fuel. Other fuel-saving aids include an energy recuperation system meaning you waste less of the car’s energy when you brake.
