Ten Second Review
SEAT's Toledo might never be one of the stars of the Spanish manufacturer's model portfolio but it's a genuinely solid offering, with neat styling, a monster boot and economical engines like the 1.6-litre TDI diesel we try here. If you're a bit wearied of unnecessary complexity in cars, this could be the vehicle you were looking for but never realised you needed.
So you want a modern family five-door but you don't want to pay too much for it. It must have space, modern functionality and a badge that isn't too bargain basement. Where to start? What about with this car, today's version of SEAT's Toledo? I say 'today's version' because we've had no fewer than three incarnations of Toledo in the past from this Spanish brand, though I won't hold it against you if you don't remember any of them. The original five-door 1991 first generation model was probably the best in its era, though its saloon replacement, launched in 1999, had plenty to be said for it too. Rather more embarrassing was the third generation hatched version which arrived in 2005 and which almost nobody in the UK bought thanks to its awkward MPV-like styling that clashed with SEAT's proper compact MPV, the Altea. But forget all of that now. Today's Toledo is a far more handsome thing but mercifully reverts to the template of generations 1 and 2. A five-door hatch with a big boot. A straightforward proposition then - and no less likeable for that. Especially in 1.6-litre TDI diesel form.
If you feel a little baffled by the complexity of modern cars and don't really want to select one of five suspension modes, a gearshift map, ride height adjustment and the amount of steering assistance you get, you'll probably like this back-to-basics Toledo. Old schoolers having a squint under the car will rapidly conclude that there's nothing radical here. And they'd be correct. There's a simple strut front suspension and a torsion beam rear end with tried and trusted Volkswagen Group engines plumbed under the bonnet. What's a little less predictable is the way this car has been created. The front end is a modified Polo platform, whereas the rear end comes from the Beetle. The result is a car which rides firmly and probably won't appeal to enthusiast drivers. Still, light steering and excellent all-round visibility make the Toledo an easy car to drive. The 105PS 1.6-litre TDI diesel I tried manages rest to 62mph in 10.4s on the way to 118mph and is a powerplant that certainly gives you more pulling power than the petrol options. But then it needs it thanks to the additional heaviness the TDI unit adds to a kerb weight that on petrol models is significantly lighter than on other family hatchback rivals. Which makes this car actually quite agile through the twisty stuff if you really need it to be. You just won't find yourself seeking excuses to put that to the test.
Design and Build
The Toledo's basic proportions take a little getting accustomed to. It's fairly long and relatively narrow (4.48 metres in length, 1.7 metres in width). It's a hatchback that looks much like a saloon and it's also a good deal bigger than you first expect and indeed expect at its price point. While it's not extrovertly styled in any way, this feeling of sparse utility is really rather refreshing in a market rammed with gaudy attention seekers. Move inside and you'll find that the cabin is very similar to that of this model's design stablemate Skoda's Rapid. In fact, apart from the door handles, dials, upholstery and badging, the two models are identical. Still, that's probably no bad thing as the overall result is surprisingly smart and elegant for the prices being asked. Certainly, this car seems very well screwed together. In the back, you'll find that rear legroom is very good - though shoulder room is tighter, which may make the back seat a pinch for three. Plenty of space for your head though. Further good news can be found in the form of a boot that, as with the Rapid, is bigger than that of a Ford Mondeo and accessed through a huge tailgate, once you've negotiated a rather high loading sill. It would be good if the 60/40 split/fold rear seats were to fold completely flat though.
Market and Model
If you're one of those people who reels whenever you look at the price of today's cars, this SEAT Toledo might offer a little welcome respite. Prices start at just under £13,000 for the 75PS 1.2 E variant, with the cost of the 1.6 TDI diesel we tried pitching in at around the £17,000 mark, once you've allowed for a few well chosen extras. The entry-level E model is fairly sparsely equipped but does get front electric windows, an MP3 CD player with AUX-in, Electronic Stability Control, driver and front passenger airbags, front side and curtain airbags and ISOFIX childseat fastening points. Go for the S and the kit list also includes electric heated door mirrors, a rear windscreen wiper, air conditioning, Bluetooth with voice control, a USB port, remote audio controls for the six speaker stereo, a trip computer, split-folding rear seats, a height-adjustable driver's seat, an alarm and remote central locking. The range-topping Toledo SE adds 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights with a cornering function, climate control, cruise control, rear electric windows, leather trim for the steering wheel and gear knob and a height-adjustable front passenger seat.
Cost of Ownership
Though this Toledo isn't the most efficient contender in the Focus-class family hatchback sector, it probably does just about enough to satisfy most owners. Most effort has been reserved for the eco-orientated 'Ecomotive' version of this 1.6-litre TDI diesel, which at launch was the only variant in the range to get a Stop/start system (a set-up subsequently added to the 1.2 TSI petrol unit) able to cut the engine when not needed, say when you're stopped at the lights or waiting in traffic. Thanks both to this and features like low rolling resistance tyres and kinetic energy recouperation (which gathers in energy that would otherwise be lost when cruising or braking), fuel savings of between 5 and 8% and a combined cycle fuel figure of 72.4mpg are possible, though CO2 emissions still can't dip beneath the magic tax-busting 100g/km barrier that some rivals breach - expect 104g/km. An ordinary Toledo 1.6 TDI like the one we tried without the Ecomotive gadgets manages 64.2mpg and 114g/km.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
