Before we built the SEAT Toledo, we asked ourselves some very basic questions. Like could we improve design, enhance performance, cut emissions and make better use of space?
And we found the answer: the elegance of a coupé, the versatility of an estate. Step inside the Toledo and discover for yourself:
It's a family car that's been meticulously crafted from headlight to tail lamp with a host of features and stunning good looks. With its precise design lines and slick angles, the SEAT Toledo is a real eye-opener. But what makes it even more beautiful is that it's so affordable.
The Toledo comes with a complete navigation system. The innovative new system features a digital radio, and Bluetooth voice recognition, as well as a five-inch touch-screen. The SEAT Media System also includes the manufacturer's dynamic route guidance feature, designed to help you avoid traffic jams, and find, for example, the nearest restaurant or petrol station. The Toledo also comes with the convenient Hill Hold Control (HHC), which prevents your car from rolling backwards during hill starts. As well as the full range of class-leading technology features provided, the Toledo comes with a range of SEAT's safety features, awarded five stars by EuroNCAP, the highly esteemed European testing body.
The SEAT Toledo comes packaged with a wide range of powerful, yet highly efficient engines. From launch, motorists can choose between two petrol engines (1.2-litre and 1.4-litre), as well as a 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine in SEAT's innovative and highly efficient Ecomotive trim – emitting just 104g/km of CO2. The Toledo comes with a Direct-Shift seven-speed dual-shift gearbox (DSG), which is offered in combination with the most powerful petrol variants. The gearbox combines the sportiness of a manual with the benefits of an automatic – providing harmonious and dynamic gear transitions. SEAT has also announced that a lower output diesel engine will join the line-up later in 2013, delivering 90ps.
There's nothing more important than the safety you provide your family. We couldn't agree more. Which is why we gave the Toledo the safety systems that matter most to families.
The SEAT Toledo is fitted with a range of dynamic safety features so that you can just enjoy the drive. Standard features include six airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and ISOFIX for simple yet ultra safe child seat fixings. Add to all that tyre pressure monitoring and hill-hold control as standard and it's no wonder the SEAT Toledo has a five star NCAP safety rating.
