The all-new SEAT Toledo is now available order with prices starting at £12,495. First orders are expected to be delivered in December 2012.
The SEAT Toledo will initially feature two petrol engines and one diesel - the petrol engines start with a 1.2 litre with three power outputs 75 PS (46.3 mpg - 137 g/km), 85 PS (55.4 mpg - 119 g/km) and a 105 PS (56.5 mpg - 116 g/km). The 1.4 litre which produces 122 PS has an average fuel consumption figure of 45.6 mpg/134 g/km and is mated to a seven-speed dual-shift gearbox (DSG).
The 1.6 litre TDI diesel engine produces 105 PS and is available with the ‘greener’ Ecomotive set-up which depending on the trim levels should return according to SEAT on average 72.4mpg - 104 g/km (S) or 70.6 mpg (SE), the non-Ecomotive versions should achieve 64.2 mpg – 114 g/km.
Both the 1.6 TDI 105 PS diesel and the 1.2 TSI 105 PS petrol versions feature Ecomotive Technology. This includes a Start/Stop engine system, which preserves fuel by cutting power when the car is at a standstill and in neutral, and an Energy Recovery system to capture brake energy otherwise lost as heat, storing it to help power the car’s electrical systems. Combined, these give quantifiable fuel savings: in the case of the SEAT Toledo with the 1.6 TDI 105 engine, they reduce CO2 emissions by 8g/km, while average economy improves by 6.4mpg.
There are there trim levels, starting with the ‘E’, ‘S’ and finishing with the top of the range ‘SE’ model.
