2013 Seat Toledo sees the Light

Seat has finally pulled the wraps off the production version of the new generation Toledo. Like its twin sister, the newly launched Skoda Rapid compact sedan, the MK4 Toledo measures 4,480mm from head to tail. And just like the Rapid, the Toledo is a notchback saloon and comes equipped with a wide-opening rear hatch.

The styling differences between the two are concentrated in details such as the front end, the tail lights design, rear license plate fitment, wheel designs and interior trim. I prefer the front end of the Toledo as it looks sleeker and comes with more shapely head lights. However, when it comes to the rear, the typical “C”-shaped tail lights of the Skoda Rapid appears more contemporary as compared to the Toledo’s. But these are just personal preferences.

Seat’s latest sedan will be offered with several engine and transmission options:
• 1.2-Litre TSI producing 74bhp
• 1.4-Litre TSI producing 120bhp
• 1.6-Litre TDI producing 104bhp
• During 2013, SEAT will add a 89bhp TDI variant

The more powerful 1.4-Litre TSI version will be offered with an optional 7-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission in addition to the standard manual gearbox.

Befitting a new sedan from the VW Group, the new Toledo is generous with the quantity of airbags. All Toledo models come fitted with driver and passenger airbags, front side airbags and head/thorax airbags.

The 2013 Toledo will be launched initially in Spain and Portugal in mid-November and to other parts of Europe and other markets during the course of 2013. We won’t be seeing the Toledo here in Singapore unless Seat’s dealership gets revived here. However, we would be seeing the Skoda Rapid here some time in the second quarter of 2013 according to Skoda Singapore’s Facebook.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
