New SEAT's too similar?

Seat will be comprhensivly relaunching itself over the next 4years to compete with more sporting brands. First came its new Altea MSV(Multi Sports Vehicle) which was launched earlier this year. I like it because its something new and different plus it stays true to the Salsa concept. Now the new Toledo is ready for launch and I can help wondering, how similar it looks to the Altea. It looks simply like a LWB version of the Altea, it even uses the exact same engine range as the Altea. There has also been talk that the next Leon will simply be a lower squater version of the Altea. This worries me because a company that prides itself so highly on being individual and full of like and flair, will have a line-up which all looks to similar.

Maybe its just because these cars, above, are all based on the same platform.
