What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's a handsome-looking car which is reasonably pleasant to drive. It's got a deep boot, too.

Against The cabin trim feels cheap, and high-mileage engines can give problems

Verdict It could be a shrewd, enjoyable and economical purchase, but beware of engine trouble

Go for… 1.9 TDi S

Avoid… 2.3-litre V5

Seat Toledo Saloon
  • 1. The boot has a high lip and a narrow opening, but the seats split and fold, and boot space is generous
  • 2. The cabin feels reasonably plush, although it's no match for a Golf
  • 3. If you're considering a high-mileage 1.8 petrol, then make sure the timing belt has been changed on time
  • 4. All Toledos need servicing every 10,000 miles, so if the service record looks sketchy, walk away
  • 5. There can be major glitches with electronic control units on diesel engines
