Seat has revealed its production ready Toledo saloon, which stays true to the body shape and design language of the Toledo concept unveiled at Geneva earlier this year - revitalising the Toledo saloon - which was last produced in 2004.
The new Toledo saloon echoes a similar design language to its own concept and other Seat models like the Seat Exeo Saloon, a reengineered version of the previous Audi A4 model.

The new Toledo body shape appears to be half saloon and half hatchback, as its compressed rear end makes it slightly smaller than its 2004 predecessor at 4.48 metres long.
Like the concept, it displays a low coupe roofline, hexagonal front grille and subtle contours on its bonnet and flanks.
There will be four engine variants available, two TSI petrols and one TDI diesel. The petrol engines include a 74bhp 1.2-litre and 120bhp 1.4-litre, with an Ecomotive version of the 1.2-litre emitting 116g/km.
The diesel powertrain is a 1.6-litre TDI and is available with both an 89bhp and 104bhp power output. An Ecomotive version of the engine emits 104g/km.
With both a saloon and hatchback appeal, the Toledo will compete against other Seat models including the Leon and, more specifically, the Exeo saloon. Prices for the new Toledo are expected to start from around £13,000, which means it undercuts the Exeo's £19,480 price tag.
The Seat Toledo will be released in the UK in the first quarter of 2013. Extensive price and specification details will be announced closer to its release date.
