It’s an oddball version of the Altea.
The Toledo used to be a Leon with a boot, but now it’s a completely pointless Altea with a boil on its backside. It has the Altea’s aggressive snout and slashed sheet metal, but what’s that back end about? It’s not only pointless, it’s also an eyesore.
The 1.6 can drag the Toledo to 100km/h in a respectable 12.9 seconds and top 181km/h. The 1.9 TDi is a smidge quicker (12.4/183km/h). The 2.0 is faster (9.6/206km/h) but the 2.0 TDi isn’t far behind (9.9s/201km/h) and is much better on the open road.
The Toledo is a surprisingly spirited handler. It’s based on the Golf’s platform so it steers with precision and doesn’t roll much in corners. The brakes are strong too, but the ride is rather firm for a small MPV.
Like the Altea, the interior has a soft, organic shape to it that curls all the controls towards the driver, making for a cosy and simple-to-use driving environment. The all-red illumination hurts the eyes at times, but otherwise it’s tough to fault the Altea’s cabin.
Being based on the Golf’s sophisticated platform, you can expect the Toledo to ride with composure (it’s a tiny bit too firm, though) and isolate occupants from the road well. Quality is up to VW standards too, but some plastics still aren’t quite as good.
The Todedo’s sister car, the Altea, got an exemplary 5-Star NCAP score equipped with the same front, side and curtain airbags, traction control, front belt pre-tensioners with load limiters, 3-point rear belts and headrests for all seats, and ISOFIX child seat anchors. ESP features on some models.
The rear seats don’t do anything clever like sliding, flipping or disappearing into the floor. There’s decent room in there though, and there are over 30 storage places in the cabin, as well as a huge boot. You thought the Altea was a bit pointless? This defies all logic.
The Toledo prices were slashed in mid-2006, making it better value. Even though it’s now only a grand more than an Altea, what are you really getting apart from an uglier rump and a tiny bit more boot space? Get an Altea, or if you really need a bigger boot, an Altea XL.
The R has electric front windows, remote locks, A/C and a CD player. The S adds 16” alloys, foglights, leather steering with audio controls, two-zone climate control, rear electric windows, electric folding mirrors, a trip computer and cruise control.
Four engines are offered: a willing but overworked 102bhp/148Nm 1.6, a gruff but torquey 105bhp/250Nm 1.9TDi, a perky 150bhp/200Nm 2.0 and a superbly smooth and grunty 140bhp/320Nm 2.0TDi. There are no bad engines really, but the 2.0TDi is best here.
