The Verso is a hard-working family car with the same refined visual appeal as the rest of Toyota's range, and on the road it's a pleasure to drive. Advanced technology under the bonnet makes sure of this, with innovations also making their way into the cabin.
The Verso borrows design cues from other Toyota models to leave admirers in no doubt as to the manufacturer. The slim, swept-back headlamps and narrow grille with chrome fins are two such features and at the front they're joined by fog lights plus 'follow-me-home' headlamps and daytime running lights. A rear spoiler sits at the end of a high roofline which maximises room for the tallest passengers inside.
There's plenty of legroom too, whether you choose the five or seven-seat model. Both have flexible seating which offers a number of configurations, as well as multiple storage areas that hold important items where you can reach them easily. The use of premium materials means the Verso is well-equipped to stand up to the demands of family motoring yet refinement is also found. Stylish Tagara blue seat trim is fitted as standard, while Trend and Excel trim grades include black upholstery with leather bolsters.
An abundance of technology is available inside all editions of the Verso. Active boasts a four speaker radio/CD audio system with USB and AUX-input plus controls on the steering wheel. For Toyota Touch 2 and its touchscreen display upgrade to Icon, and for Toyota Touch 2 with Go which adds satellite navigation select the Trend or Excel version. A DAB digital radio and rear-view camera are also included with all but the Active for more connected and convenient driving.
The carmaker's refined and powerful petrol and diesel engines lead the Verso forward confidently while also helping to keep running costs low. The most economical of them all is the 1.6-litre diesel with six-speed manual transmission, which returns as high as 62.8mpg combined and emits only 119g/km of CO2. Also on the spec list are a 1.6-litre and 1.8-litre petrol, the former tuned for 147bhp and 180Nm of torque, which helps it respond instantly when you dip the pedal.
While enjoying the agility and responsiveness of the car's driving dynamic you can be sure of its ability to keep you and all passengers safe. To make this happen the Verso brings together Traction Control (TRC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and Vehicle Stability Control Plus (VSC+) for poised performance when the vehicle is under strain. The Japanese firm's Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags deploy should you be involved in an incident, and injuries are mitigated by Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) seats.
