As announced few months ago, Seat will manufacture two new C/D-segment models at its plant in Martorell. One of them will come to replace the unsuccessful Toledo and will be called Bolero. It will be unveiled in 2009. A concept versions will be unveiled at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.
The 2009 Bolero will be built on the same platform as the Audi A3, Volkswagen Golf and Seat Leon. Its design will be inspired by the Tribu Concept car unveiled last year at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
The Bolero name was used for the first time in 1998, when Seat launched the Bolero Concept, a four seater, two door coupe powered by a 2.8 liter bi-turbo engine that delivers 330 bhp.
