Which used Seat Toledo hatchback should I buy?
Entry-level S trim looks a little spartan, because it does without alloy wheels, despite getting air conditioning, rear parking sensors and electric windows all round. We’d recommend spending a little more and getting an SE Toledo, because it will come with 16in alloy wheels, climate control and cruise control. However, if you buy an SE registered after 2016, it came with less kit, essentially taking the place of the S in the Toledo range, so be mindful of that. Style Advance comes with even more luxuries, such as front parking sensors and part-leather, part-Alcantara seats. Style Advance was replaced by Xcellence, which added full LED headlights.
Unless you do lots of miles, we’d stick with the 1.2-litre petrol engine over the 1.6-litre diesel. It has a broad spread of power, it’s reasonably refined and its fuel economy is really good. The later 1.0-litre petrol is more efficient, but it's less refined and a little too expensive at the moment.
Our favourite Seat Toledo: 1.2 TSI SE
