Cabin quality on the Toledo has improved massively but it's still not what you would call classy. There's a variety of plastics - some good, some less good - but they look robust. The layout is sensible and if you go for the sat nav you’ll appreciate that it’s perfectly placed in the middle of dashboard at exactly the right height. The central armrest inbetween the driver and the passenger on higher-spec models can hinder gearchanges, but that’s a minor issue.
If it’s really a problem you can flip the top up. If you are looking for a well-built car that'll hang together and be rattle-free you'll be happy with your purchase.
If you are looking for a car with decent seats, a compliant ride and a pleasant cabin environment you won’t go far wrong with this car - SEAT Toledo comfort levels are very acceptable. Another bonus is that the seats are supple, with enough lateral support to stop you sliding about when you are cornering at speed. There’s a wide range of adjustment for the driver and the standard height-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel means you can get a decent driving position without too much faffing about.
The cabin is a little plain but dashboard controls are easy to use and road and engine noise has been kept in check nicely. The lower-powered petrols and the diesels can be noisy on start-up, but they are fine when you are cruising on the motorway.
