Sharp style from new


SEAT Toledo

THE new generation SEAT Toledo, due to hit the streets towards the end of this year, is being unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

Though still officially a concept, its Spanish maker describes the show model as a ‘close to production' study.

And quite an eye-catcher it is too, blending the looks of a classic saloon car with sporty, coupe-like style.

SEAT says that the Toledo, which fits in between the Ibiza and Leon line-ups, will offer the space and usability of a five-door hatchback within compact dimensions.

Measuring 4.48 metres in length, the new model will have space for five people plus a 500-litre luggage compartment, folding rear bench and large rear hatch.

Company president James Muir said: "The concept illustrates our idea of the perfect mid-range car. It is an excellent combination of emotional design, top-level usability and dynamic driving characteristics.

"The subsequent production model, our new Toledo, will write a whole new success story with its clear SEAT identity. Following the Mii family and the new Ibiza, the new Toledo marks the next wave in our model offensive and growth strategy."
