    Not sure it says anything, most people are completely unaware that Seat made a car called the Toledo. Most people think I have a Leon, which suggests I was too young to buy a Golf.

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    Excellent, as standard the engine was strong, torquey and didnt complain when revved hard. The gearbox allowed it so much flexibilty in all conditions. After a stage 1 revo map its retained its flexibilty and fuel economy but is substantially quicker. Suprises most who ride in it or try to outpace you on a fast road.

    What's it like to park?

    Pretty easy, good visibility, and it's not as big as it sometimes looks.
