New SEAT Toledo

edited 07-22-2004

[/size]A new saloon concept

Only two months after its introduction as a prototype at the Madrid Motor Show, the new Toledo is already a reality. With it, SEAT redefines the classical saloon concept to offer more versatility, functionality, and unprecedented spaciousness for an automobile of this class.

The third Toledo generation retains the essence of its predecessors, combining the notchback concept of the current model (launched in 1998) with the rear hatch of the first Toledo (1991). All moreover without giving up one of the most appealing features for Toledo users: a large volume boot.


The new Toledo will be introduced next September at the International Automobile Salon in Paris. And it will be launched on the market before the end of the year.


Due to its size, features and versatility, the second model of the “new SEAT” is intended to be the first family car: an attractive large-volume saloon, perfectly combining length with interior space and a large capacity boot.

Undoubtedly, the new Toledo marks a change in the current trend among the cars of its type by redefining the classical saloon concept to respond to current requirements of potential customers in this class.

The second model of the “new SEAT”

Toledo is, after Altea, the second model of the new generation of SEAT cars. Conceived by SEAT within the Audi brand group, this product portrays the image and features that identify the new models of the Spanish brand.


Thus, the new Toledo stands out with its innovative and attractive design. Particularly the shape of the rear door, the large front grille and the expressive headlights, and, on the sides, the dynamic line, a design feature beginning in the curve of the front wheel arch and running smoothly along the doors until reaching the back wheel.


With a length of 4.50 metres and a width of 1.77 metres, the new Toledo offers more interior space as compared to longer vehicles, thanks to its monovolume design and its height of 1.57 metres. Furthermore, it boasts a two-level luggage compartment with a 500-litre capacity.

Four engines

The new model is available with four different engines, two petrol – 150 bhp (110 kW) 2.0 FSI and 102 bhp (75 kW) 1.6 – and two Diesel – 140 bhp (103 kW) 2.0 TDI and 105 bhp (77 kW) 1.9.

The two most powerful engines – the two-litre FSI and TDI – are combined with a six-speed manual gearbox. In addition, the former is also available with automatic and sequential Tiptronic 6-speed gearbox. The 2.0 TDI is available with the new DSG 6-speed gearbox.

The new Toledo also offers a high degree of safety. ABS, TCS and ESP systems are all included, along with an emergency braking assistant (EBA). In addition, assisted electromechanical steering and a chassis incorporating the well-known Agile Chassis combined with a multi-link rear axle, provide the model with excellent stability and very dynamic behaviour.

As for passive safety, the Toledo leaves the factory equipped with six airbags: driver and passenger airbags, and side and head airbags. It also includes three-point seatbelts for all seats, with pyrotechnic pre-tensioners at the front and the Isofix system for securing child seats integrated in the back seats.

The looks of the new Seat Toledo is not very appealing, in my opinion. thumbsdown.gif

The front of the car looks too similar to the recently introduced Seat Altea while the rear reminds me of the Renault Vel Satis, which was poorly received by the public in Europe and has been subsequently canned, if I am not wrong. shakehead.gif

The design of the dashboard seems to be from the Seat Altea as well.

I still think the current shape of the Seat Toledo looks much better. nod.gif

The marketing hype forgot to mention 'ugly'. Sorry, but coming from a Tody MkII admirer, this in no way improves it one bit. How does this semi-MPV move Seat towards their goal of being a 'Spanish Alfa'?? I expected something low-slung, even coupe-like, not a bloated transporter - they already have the Altea for that. Supreme missed opportunity shakehead.gif



The ultimate test - can you imagine anyone looking at these photos saying 'dammit, I have to have one of those!!'?

The rear looks a bit like the Renault Megane. I still prefer the current looks of the Toledo though.
