The Seat Toledo is for families looking for lots of space with a big boot in their vehicle. It's a value for money offering with good engines in a competitive segment.
The most popular engine for the Toledo is the 1.6 litre TDI diesel and it is available in the Ecomotive guise which has economy of 72 mpg with emissions of 104g/km. This in effect means that with careful driving, this is a family car that should have a 900 miles’ tank range. There's also an impressive 1.2 litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine available but this only returns 55 mpg.
It may look like a saloon, but the Toledo is really a spacious hatchback. It's much larger than many of its rivals and costs less too. It may also miss out on some equipment and handling abilities but the Toledo offers practicality and lots of functionality.
Of the engines, the petrol is slightly better around town and the Toledo makes for an excellent motorway cruiser where the 1.6 litre diesel unit comes into its own. The car is composed and a comfortable place to be for long journeys. It helps too that there is a large boot, it's much bigger than many of its rivals to 550litres and standard equipment on the entry-level Toledo is minimal and other models come with alloy wheels and steering wheel controls.
The safety kit list also includes electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, airbags and some models come with fog lights that illuminate junctions.
Essentially, the Seat Toledo has been pitched into a competitive segment which is dominated by better-known rivals but this offering is worthy of closer consideration and it ticks many boxes that families want from their vehicle. It's been priced to sell but that does not mean it is a second-rate vehicle with the carmaker having to cut corners to gain sales. In many ways, it's much better than some of its rivals and for those who want a no-frills, decent performing family hatchback with lots of space, the Seat Toledo is an excellent choice.
