The Toledo, which is based on the previous Volkswagen Polo, has been axed
Shrinking market segment prompts discontinuation of the Toledo; a direct replacement doesn’t appear likely
Orders for the outgoing mid-size hatchback are no longer being taken, but stock is still available at some Seat dealerships.
The model, which had remarkable boot space in line with large saloons such as the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series, received a facelift in 2016 that included a consolidation of the engine line-up, while diesel versions were dropped back in August.
No direct replacement has been identified for the Toledo, but customers are expected to be steered towards the larger Leon, which has been a success for Seat since the launch of the current iteration in 2012.
Last year, Seat sold 6726 Toledos in Europe, compared with almost 150,000 Leons and 74,962 Ateca SUVs.
