The new SEAT Toledo – seen at Geneva 2012 and sister car to the new Skoda Rapid – has been revealed.
The SEAT Toledo Concept rolled out at this year’s Geneva Motor Show looked production ready to us, and judging by the reveal of the new SEAT Toledo in production guise today, it was.
Sister car to the recently revealed Skoda Rapid, the SEAT version is separated from its sibling by minor differences on the nose, tail lights and trim and is aimed at exactly the same market place.
SEAT are launching the new Toledo in Spain and Portugal at the end of 2012, and in 2013 the Toledo will find its way in to Mexico and Turkey and, say SEAT, Germany, which was not in the mix for the Rapid. And nor was the UK, but it seems the Toledo is heading here too.
The Toledo is a liftback just like the Rapid (which means it looks like a saloon but the whole back lifts up hatch-like) and will come with a choice of a1.6 litre diesel in 103bhp and 89bhp outputs and 1.2 and 1.4 litre TSI (petrol) engines with power outputs from 74bhp to 121bhp.
Standard equipment on the Toledo isn’t exactly comprehensive, but even the entry-level models will get central locking, electric windows and split folding back seats.
The 2013 SEAT Toledo will arrive in the UK in the early New Year. We should have a price for the new Toledo nearer the time.
