Comfort and Refinement
During our time with the SEAT Toledo we were impressed with the level of thought that has gone into the ergonomics of the vehicle. The interior is spacious and comfortable with excellent head and leg room in both the front and rear. The large flexible interior has ample cabin space for 4/5 people. The raised seating position and wide opening doors make the Toledo a very easy vehicle to get in and out of making it an excellent choice for people with mobility problems. It also features grab handles in both the front and rear.
The Toledo Sport model has supremely supportive seats which feature ample side support and long seat base cushions for under thigh support. The drivers seat is height and reach adjustable and has a tilting backrest with lumbar support.
The leather covered three spoke steering wheel is adjustable for height and reach enabling you to attain the perfect driving position.
The Toledo model range features red instrument lighting with brightness control which is aesthetically pleasing and restful on the eyes.
The level of refinement is high and includes: two zone climate control (driver & passenger), one touch electric front & rear window with anti-squeeze facility, illuminated driver and passenger sunvisors, two 12V power outlets, auto-dimming rear view mirror, trip computer, steering wheel mounted audio controls and electrically adjustable door mirrors with park function.
How It Looks -
The Toledo's design is truly beautiful and shares its distinctive DNA with the SEAT Altea. The nose features a bold honeycomb mesh radiator grille, bonnet and headlamp design, while the swooping side line is clearly visible from the side. The rear is a bold statement that we liked but was not to some peoples taste and reminded us of the dramatically styled Renault Avantime and Vel Satis.
Another moving work of art are the innovative windscreen wiper blades which are concealed within the windscreen’s A-pillars observing them in motion is fantastic.
