We were lucky enough to stumble across a 55 plate Toledo 1.9tdi Stylance, with rear parking sensors, full size spare, in platinum grey metallic, with 18000 on the clock for £9000. Needless to say we snapped it up, and what a fantastic find. The handling is superb on winding country roads, superb at high speeds on the motorway, mid range acceleration is very good for overtaking etc. It is a comfortable ride (but quite firm) easy to find a comfortable driving position. Parking sensors are a big bonus as visibility is quite poor when reversing, but no worse than my old Fiesta. The legroom in the back is fantastic, we have had three booster seats in the back, it was tight but they were all fastened in safely. The Stylance spec is pretty good, loads of toys. The Toledo has a massive 500 litre boot (roof box for sale), enough for any small family. Averaging 50mpg at the minute but mostly town driving which is good. The only bad point we have found is the reversing light, it lights nothing up apart from the bulb. Fantastic car, nice to drive, powerful when required, good spec compare to other more expensive makes), massive boot, and haven't seen another Toledo on the road. Value for money in my eyes and a little bit different.
