Following the news that SEAT achieved record sales in September, the company can today also confirm that the entry price for the new Toledo range will be just £12,495. That low entry price makes the new Toledo one of the best value models on sale today, and the most cost-effective car of its type, bar none. With a cabin capable of seating four tall adults in comfort, a huge 550-litre boot, and stylish looks in line with the rest of the SEAT range, the Toledo is yet another extremely compelling reason to head to a SEAT dealership. Despite its compact exterior dimensions and low price, both comparable to the supermini segment, the Toledo boasts a luggage capacity that even the majority of large family cars cannot match. And for added practicality, it’s accessed via a large hatchback opening. This five-door layout takes the fourth generation Toledo back to the extremely successful formula of the original car. More than 22,000 of 1990’s Toledo Mk I were sold in the UK before the car ceased production in 1998; total Toledo sales in the UK across three generations have eclipsed 33,000 units. “The combination of price and packaging that the Toledo offers is second to none,” said SEAT UK Product Manager Simon Bradley. “Very few cars, if any, offer the same combination of space, flexibility, affordability, value and style as the new Toledo. “We’ve positioned the range so that it offers something for everyone, with the entry-level E model providing exceptional value in terms of the space on offer for the price, while the SE specification car is loaded with useful equipment. “Whatever version is chosen, every Toledo customer will enjoy outstandingly low running costs because of the car’s excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions across the range, as well as very reasonable insurance groupings, and BIK ratings as low as 14%. All-in-all, the Toledo is a car that makes sense whichever way you look at it,” he added. Ecomotive Technology Both the 1.6 TDI 105 PS diesel and the 1.2 TSI 105 PS petrol versions feature Ecomotive Technology. This includes a Start/Stop engine system, which preserves fuel by cutting power when the car is at a standstill and in neutral, and an Energy Recovery system to capture brake energy otherwise lost as heat, storing it to help power the car’s electrical systems. Together, these give quantifiable fuel savings: in the case of the Toledo with the 1.6 TDI 105 engine, they reduce CO2emissions by 8g/km, while average economy improves by 6.4mpg.
