Traveling as a family doesn’t have to mean compromising on fun and performance. The SEAT Toledo combines the elegance of a coupe with the versatility of an estate. It’s a safe, quality family car for those who don’t want to give up a dynamic driving experience. And to top it all off, it’s also a very affordable sedan car.
The SEAT Toledo’s technological features have been designed to provide three things: entertainment, safety and a superior driving experience. Because when you’re taking the family in your sedan, boredom, danger and uninspired driving shouldn’t come along for the ride.
The SEAT Toledo’s sophisticated active and passive safety features will give you the peace of mind you need for taking your family on the road with your sedan car. The SEAT Toledo is all about fun and convenience – and nothing will help you enjoy your car more than knowing you and your passengers are well protected.
Everyone’s doing their bit for the planet. And that starts with a choice. The new SEAT Toledo is designed with that choice in mind, being more efficient so you can do your bit too. Of course, your wallet won’t be complaining either.
The Seat Toledo is sensible to the point of making Hermione Granger seem louche. About as visually interesting as the inside of your eyelids, it is the automotive equivalent of a Bosch dishwasher: well made, utterly functional and entirely devoid of character. It takes the notion of quality white goods for the road and re-invents it on a level shared only by its badge-engineered sister, the Skoda Rapid.
In terms of practicality, there’s a lot to like about the Toledo, for the same reasons you’ll like its near-identical sibling, the Skoda Rapid. The interior architecture is simple and the controls easy to fathom, while there’s acres of space front and rear – and an enormous boot.
Drivers comment on “impressive build quality” and “sensible design”, though others have chosen “old fashioned” and “built to a price” – they’re both right.
Everything feels solid though and there are plenty of spaces to store odds and ends. Really it’s the interior space, decent equipment levels and huge boot that will attract buyers.
It’s difficult to fault the Toledo’s safety credentials. For a car in this price bracket, it has all of the features that you’d hope for. Front, side and curtain airbags are standard throughout the range, and the majority of the range is fitted with stability control for when things get a little bit tricky.
Nothing revolutionary, but it does all the basics very well.
If you think this is an unfair assessment it may well be the ideal car for you – the Toledo is to cars as a ham sandwich is to fine dining. And sometimes, all you need is a ham sandwich, nothing more, nothing less.
