All-New 2013 SEAT Toledo Officially Unveiled

Report

SEAT has released official details and pictures of the all-new Toledo.

SEAT's all-new Toledo will launch in Spain and Portugal this November and will slowly roll out across the rest of Europe during 2013. 4.48 meters long, it is 4cm longer than the Toledo MkII, and comes with a large, wide-opening rear hatch as opposed to its predecessor's conventional boot lid. A longer wheelbase also helps to offer passengers more legroom. The five-door, compact notchback saloon adopts the brand's current design DNA.

Its broad, angular headlamps are the most obvious example of this, while the trapezoidal, svelte grille, lower air intake and horizontal rear light clusters are other standout features of the new design."The new Toledo is a timeless personality. It combines classically modern lines with understated sporting character and a high level of everyday practicality. It is the SEAT among saloon cars, with excellent design quality in every detail," says Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos, Head of SEAT Design. VW Group's latest engines have been utilized by the new Toledo, including the highly efficient 1.2 and 1.4 TSI units and the 1.6 TDI.
