AMSTERDAM - Volkswagen will shift production of the Seat Toledo from Spain to its plant in Brussels, Belgium, when the car is replaced next year.
The new Toledo shares a platform with the Volkswagen Golf IV that is built in Brussels.
The Toledo will debut at the Turin auto show in April.
The Brussels plant won the contract after an internal bidding process. The current Toledo is built at Seat's plant in Martorell, Spain.
Earlier, Volkswagen said it will transfer production of the VW Polo and Seat Arosa from Wolfsburg, Germany, to Martorell next year to free capacity for the Golf and VW Lupo.
The new Toledo will be built on the same line as the Golf, which debuted in the autumn. Both models are based on the group's A platform, along with the Audi A3 and Skoda Octavia.
VW currently has daily capacity for 1,000 cars in Brussels. That will be increased to 1,200 per day, said spokesman Marc Kroone.
Annual output for the Toledo is expected to be around 75,000 units.
