    I guess they are working on the basis of their "young and sporty" market growing up eventually and having kids/ requiring something a bit....bigger? :whistle:

  3. that looks naff, Seat have just zoomed in on the Altea design when its been on the design computer and thought , thats it we can enlarge it and call it the new toledo, more like ToleDDDoooooooooohhhhhhhhh!

    Dont get me wrong i like the Altea as it is fresh and makes the Scenic and other MPVish cars look naff but to carry the theme through to another car which is meant to be Seats flagship is just naff.

    Totally agree. I like the Altea too but really stupid to have the Toledo and Leon looking almost identical . Far too upright looking to be called ' sporty' .Dread to think what the next Ibiza will look like :(

    Lookin good

    :) Well everyone Ive asked likes the look of it bar the highish roofline (not very sports saloon really!) but then I do like the Vel Satis as well! Equipment and engines are sounding good and it is based on the new Golf with its clever rear suspension so it should ride and handle with style... Not long to wait now :)

    Saw the new shape Toledo so went and brought one of the older shape ones (on a 53 plate) as the new shape is ugly and as some of the posts have said who wants an mpv shape.....

    Ive seen one

    It was on the back of a transporter with Audi/VW cars on too.

    I caught up from behind it on the motorway, thinking it was a black Altea until I was closer. It doesn't look to bad in the flesh, although I couldn't take too close a look without some stuntman type jumping from my car and onto the transporter. Maybe this one is going to be a demo car?

    They are due with dealers in the New Year. so very likely a press car, or some of the early demonstrators arriving at SEAT UK, for dealer training etc.

    Probably showing the dealers how to set up special lighting in the showrooms to make it look less ugly than it actually is. ;) :)

    (all the demos are probably Black)

    The new Toledo has been on sale here for about a month, though I haven't seen any on the road yet.

    Went round by the dealers yesterday for a look but I can't say I was impressed. To me the rear end looks vitrually identitcal to a Vel-Satis.

    I really don't see the point of this car. What exactly does it 'do' that the Altea doesn't. I can't see it appealing to the traditional saloon car buyers as it is effectively a hatch-back.

    Also, where does the new Leon fit into all this? If the Altea is just a Toledo with a 'normal' hatch-back what will the new Leon bring to the model range?
