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 30 - 54 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.

Competitive new pricing, but residual values are starting to look a bit vulnerable. Petrol engine fuel economy is reasonable, while the diesels are exceptional. Insurance groupings are average and SEAT dealer servicing is a lot cheaper than VW.

Toledo performs well on the eco front. With an average of 174 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are quite low for a medium-sized saloon. However, it's worth noting that the line up has a high number of diesel models, bringing the average down and giving buyers more choices of low-emission versions. Diesels typically produce less CO2 than petrol engines with similar power outputs.

Eco-conscious buyers should consider the 1.9-litre diesel, which is one of the greenest models in the range. The range is also fairly economical, averaging 43 mpg.

Toledo owners report very few problems and are nearly unanimous in their praise for its reliability - check for yourself by visiting the owners' reviews section of the website. The interior is superbly screwed together and the diesel engines are strong enough for ultra-high mileages.
