The SEAT Toledo was first introduced in 1991 and SEAT ended its production in 2018. Technically similar to the Skoda Rapid.
The initial version of the SEAT Toledo was launched as a four door fastback saloon, and its sales career lasted from May 1991 to March 1999.
This generation of the Toledo was the first SEAT automobile developed entirely under Volkswagen Group ownership, and it was built on the Golf Mk2 with a 550 liter boot expandable to 1360 liters when folding rear seats.
As saloon versions of small family cars were rare in Europe, it was sometimes considered a large family car due to its overall length and boot size, despite having comparably less rear leg room, and pricing closer to small family cars.
It went on sale in most of Europe in May 1991, though it did not arrive on the British market until October 1991, with the official launch at the London Motor fair.
Later, the Toledo would see the addition of more powerful versions, including a 150 PS (110 kW; 148 bhp) 2.0 GTI 16v, and 110 PS (81 kW; 108 bhp) 1.9 TDI which, like many diesel engines built since 1996 by the Volkswagen Group, is advertised as capable of running on either mineral diesel or bio-diesel.
