Seat Toledo axed in the UK

The Seat Toledo, an uninspired rebadged version of the Skoda Rapid, has been axed in the UK, where buyers are being steered towards the larger Leon.

Both the Skoda Rapid and Seat Toledo are based on a stretched version of the previous generation Volkswagen Polo platform, and were not popular, with buyers preferring hatchbacks and crossovers.

Like all previous versions of the Toledo, the current car had a trunk around the size of the much larger BMW 5-Series.

Positioned between the Ibiza supermini and the larger Leon hatch, some stock of the Toledo remains available in the UK.

In 2017, Seat sold just 6726 Toledos in Europe. In the same time period Seat sold 144,951 Leons and 74,962 Ateca crossovers.
