With a length of 4.48 metres, the new SEAT Toledo is four centimetres longer than its predecessor from 2004. In contrast to the Toledo II, which was equipped with a conventional boot lid, the latest version of the model line comes with a large, wide-opening rear hatch. The comparatively long wheelbase of 2,602 millimetres (80 millimetres longer than the Toledo II) delivers a generous feeling of space and plenty of legroom for all passengers.
As a completely new model, the SEAT Toledo makes use of the very latest Volkswagen Group engines. At the pinnacle are highly efficient TSI spark-ignition engines in 1.2 and 1.4 displacements, and a 1.6 common-rail TDI unit. A 7-speed dual-shift gearbox DSG is offered in combination with the most powerful petrol variants. The petrol engines generate between 55 kW (75 hp) and 90 kW (122 hp); the Ecomotive version boasts CO2 emissions of just 116 g/km. The Ecomotive version of the TDI diesel engine – which produces 77 kW (105 hp) from a displacement of 1.6 litres – also offers a best-in-class figure of 104 g/km. During 2013, SEAT will expand the SEAT Toledo diesel line-up with a 66 kW (90 hp) TDI variant.
The all-new SEAT Toledo will be launched initially in Spain and Portugal in mid-November 2012 and then in the rest of Europe during 2013. Next to Spain, other key markets for SEAT Toledo are Germany, Mexico and Turkey.
