Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 46 - 72 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

SEAT Toledo running costs will be cheapest with the 1.6-litre diesel version mated to the five-speed manual gearbox which has a claimed average fuel economy of 72.4mpg with the steel wheels and 70.4mpg with the 16-inch alloys. If you are a petrol diehard you will have to take a look at the 104bhp 1.2-litre that has a claimed average fuel economy of 56.5mpg if you run it on the 15-inch steel wheels.

Factor in affordable servicing, cheap insurance and a long service interval and you’ll be looking at very acceptable monthly outgoings.

SEAT Toledo emissions are best with the greenest engine which is the 104hp 1.6-litre diesel Ecomotive version that has stop/start technology and brake energy recovery. It emits 104g/km of CO2 while the 104bhp 1.2-litre petrol Ecomotive spits CO2 out at a rate of 116g/km. It’s the best in the petrol line-up for emissions and also comes with stop/start and brake energy recuperation.

SEAT Toledo reliability should be impressive. Gone are the days when you would have witnessed sorry looking SEATs parked up on hard shoulders with bonnets up and owners looking distressed. SEATs are bulletpoof now and with solid build quality, proven engines and sound running gear you should have no worries with the Toledo.
