Unofficial Picture: 2014 SEAT Toledo

First pictures of the new SEAT Toledo have been leaked on an Italian website.

The new Toledo - which was shown in near-production-ready form at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year - is based on the Skoda Rapid, and both cars will tackle the likes of the Ford Focus and VW Golf.

Like the Rapid, the Toledo has a saloon-like body but is, in fact, a hatchback. The doors and roof are identical, but the nose of the SEAT has been altered to give it the brand’s kinked headlamp design and trapezoidal grille. The rear gets a more angular bumper and taillamps.

The interior has the same clean and uncluttered dash design, with easy-to-read dials and clever storage. There should be plenty of rear legroom, too, thanks to a 2.6m wheelbase and split-folding rear seat. Both the Skoda and SEAT versions offer more rear legroom than the current Octavia.

The SEAT Toledo will be powered by a range of engines, including small capacity diesel and petrol VW Group powerplants, with CO2 emissions expected to be below 99g/km.

Prices are expected to sit above the SEAT Ibiza, which means the Toledo should match the Rapid’s £13,000 starting price when it arrives in showrooms in 2013. For more details click here.
