Seat Launches the Toledo 1.2 TSI
|   Monday, February 18, 2013
The Seat Toledo 1.2 TSI is the first vehicle to make sense in the Toledo range as this is the most practical machine in the lineup till date. The 84 BHP displacing 1.2 liter petrol engine is the most potent for daily use and is better in most respects than its 74 BHP displacing counterpart which is obsolete. The 74 BHP displacing 1.2 liter MPI engine maybe less powerful but it is one of the most fuel efficient in its segment.

However, the other petrol models placed higher up in the segment provide lesser fuel efficiency.
The Seat Toledo diesel units perform better in the market and it is because of the low cost of maintenance and fuel efficiency. Seat should consider developing and launching diesel variants although no such measures have been taken so far.

The Toledo was aimed at providing the cheapest ride in class and launching petrol models of the vehicle does not look like a great proposition at the moment. Therefore, the 1.2 liter TSI seems to be the most suitable for the Toledo tag at the moment. Priced at £14,120, the Toledo is an identical twin of the Skoda Rapid and apart from the exterior changes both the vehicles are vastly similar.

There is no major downside to the Toledo's performance and the figures are acceptable considering the specifications. The engine is quite refined and smooth and is mated to a five speed manual transmission system. The addition of the stick shift not only makes the vehicle responsive but also attracts the attention of the automobile lovers. The loss of power also increases fuel efficiency and this is a potential which enhances the appeal of the Toledo.

The general ergonomics of the Toledo makes the vehicle stand out in the crowd and the steering pattern of the vehicle is quite effective. There is nothing eye catching about the Toledo but the vehicle is all about practicality. Cabin space is high and the Toledo can effectively house five people at the most. The 550 liter boot area of the vehicle is quite high and the handling is quite crisp.

The driving position of the Toledo is quite high and this gives the driver a grand view of the road up front. All round view is also quite abrupt and this is a positive aspect of the vehicle. The Toledo is the best combination of economy, performance and price. The lighter weight of the previous generation Toledo is quite efficient when it comes to affordability. However, this is not the best car in its range owing to its low power development and ergonomics. However, the Toledo is the best in class due to space and value and is placed at the top of the priority list of many. 0 – 60 MPH is possible in 11.8 seconds while the vehicle sports a top speed of 114 MPH. The 1197 cc engine is powerful enough to power the Toledo on road and this vehicle is not designed to go off road under any circumstances.
