SEAT Toledo
SEAT’s small family car first arrived on forecourts and garages way back in 1991 when the Volkswagen Group made it one of the first vehicles produced on the Golf Mk2 platform.

Early opinion of the Toledo was split, the problem being that saloon versions of small family cars were rare in Europe in the early 1990s and many confused it for a large family car due to its overall length and boot size. However, those who sat in the back passenger seat will attest that this was definitely a ‘small’ family car.

Compared to its stablemates, the Toledo lacked the oomph of its Ibiza and Malaga, which were fortunate to have ‘System Porsche’ units. The Toledo would get some power in later additions with the introduction of the 150 PS and 2.0 GTI.

The second generation was produced from 1998-2004 and was more rounded than its predecessor. Again it shared components with Volkswagen, and also Skoda, which by this time was a platform mate.
The third generation was introduced for five years through 2004 to 2009 and we are now in the fourth generation. The latest version of the Toledo holds a slightly different place in class than the 1991 version, built in the same Skoda factory as the Skoda Rapid, Mlada Boleslav in the Czech Republic, the Toledo now sits somewhere between the Ibiza supermini and the Leon small family car, and holds a lot more curves than its original.

A fifth generation of Toledo is expected to hit the market in early 2019.
