The Toledo was the first SEAT to be developed as part of the Volkswagen Group and joined the range line-up in May 1991 as a saloon-style hatchback.
Its arrival coincided with the Barcelona Olympics in 1992, where the model received a huge amount of international attention as it made up a large part of the games’ official vehicles.
Now the all new fourth generation Toledo is available to order.
The all-new model marks the welcome return of a SEAT favourite and adds even more choice to our growing model range. Like its 1991 predecessor, the new Toledo mixes saloon looks with hatchback practicality, and combines great build quality and style with unbeatable value.
The New SEAT Toledo offers a mature, refined quality that doesn’t sacrifice the understated sporting character expected in every SEAT.
Slim, angular headlamps at the front and rear combine with sharp, precisely defined surfaces and edges. Every element of the Toledo’s design exudes class and elegance, but not to the detriment of agility or practicality.
The short rear deck suggests Toledo might be a saloon, but in fact the entire rear windscreen opens as part of the hatch, offering a massive boot volume that is incredibly easy to pack and unpack.
Honeycomb grilles – another key part of the latest SEAT design DNA – are standard on Toledo, along with a central bonnet crease that completes the arrow design theme.
Our SEAT Toledo with be available in E,S, and SE trim levels. Entry level E will offer 15-inch steel wheels, MP3-compatible CD player with AUX-in port and four speakers, and front electric windows.
The S trim has body-coloured handles and mirrors, electric and heated door mirrors, and a rear windscreen wiper (highlighting the Toledo’s true hatchback status).
Comfort and convenience features include air conditioning, trip computer and height-adjustable driver’s seat.
Infotainment gets a big lift in the S with Bluetooth as standard, accompanied by steering-wheel mounted controls, a USB port and two additional speakers.
Topping the Toledo range is the dynamic and luxurious SE.
Standard equipment includes familiar items from elsewhere in the SEAT range, such as 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, cruise control, climate control and rear electric windows.
The feature-packed SEAT Media System 2.2 is available as an optional extra, delivering satellite navigation as well as a DAB radio and Bluetooth audio streaming capability.
Toledo’s power comes from a range of the latest TSI turbocharged petrol and TDI common-rail diesel engines, plus a multi-point injection 1.2 75 PS petrol unit to kick off the range.
SEAT’s outstanding DSG-auto double-clutch gearbox is available for those drivers who need an automatic – in the form of a 1.4 TSI 122 PS.
