For The Seat Toledo gives you a roomy cabin and a huge boot. It’s also significantly cheaper than similarly-equipped versions of the Ford Focus and VW Golf.
Against The ride is firm, it doesn’t handle particularly well and there are signs of cost-cutting in the cabin.
What Car? says
If space is your top priority, the Seat Toldeo should definitely be on your list. However, there are other well-priced hatchbacks that offer plusher cabins and superior comfort.

Target Price team says:
The Toledo is priced to sit between the Ibiza supermini and the Leon small family car in Seat’s range. However, it’s actually bigger than both of those cars.
What may well also surprise you is that, although the Toledo looks more like a saloon in pictures, it is actually a hatchback with an enormous boot.
So far, we’ve only driven 84bhp and 103bhp 1.2-litre turbo petrols, and the 103bhp 1.6-litre diesel. We prefer the petrol engines for their broader spread of power, and they’re also smoother and quieter. The 84bhp version is our pick, because it’s usefully cheap to buy.
There are three Toledo trims, and we reckon the mid-level S spec strikes the best balance between equipment and affordability.
