Does the Toyota Verso deliver an experience like no other?
When you think of a great all round Multi purpose vehicle, what is the number one vehicle that you think of?. It is common for many to answer this question with the words Citroen C4 and Ford B Max and rightfully so. These are not our MPV cars of choice today though. Today we check out a vehicle which has been a long standing rival for the C4 and B Max and has been offered in dealerships for the past six years. The review we are carrying out today focuses on the Verso from Toyota. The Verso is known for offering an affordable price range and great value for money when we take into consideration exterior and interior features on offer. Offered in both petrol and diesel formats and a choice of manual or automatic transmission systems, the Verso also brings along with it some good choices for the customer. It truly has everything from the look, to the comfort and then to the overall smooth drive. Fun for big and small families, family days out or even just a drive through the city, there is no reason as to why the Verso could not prove to be the ideal car.
What features help the Verso to stand out from the rest?
Well it varies on what you are looking for in an MPV car. The Verso across its four levels of trim offer 1.6 and 1.8 petrol and diesel units with multiple choice when it comes to the transmission. One petrol and one diesel is offered with the Active range which also sees heated door mirrors, a multi functioning steering wheel and electric windows as some of the standout highlights. A diesel is on offer with icon models carrying a manual gearbox and two petrols are also up for grabs with either automatic or manual transmissions. Sixteen inch alloy wheels,daytime running lights,stability control,a DAB digital radio and a rear view parking camera are brought forward for the second step up in trims.
A 1.8 litre petrol engine pared to an automatic transmission is up for grabs with the mid range Trend model as is a 1.6 manual diesel. The alloys for this model grow in size by one inch to seventeen inches,privacy glass,LED lighting at the back of the car,dual zone air conditioning and a new multimedia system with a built in sat nav is also added. Now last but not least is your range topping Excel model. An automatic petrol or manual diesel can be chosen and is also joined alongside by top of the range equipment including automatic windscreen wipers and headlights,a leather arm rest and headlight cleaners are the main highlights.
So there you have it. Plenty of engine choices and transmission choices, lots of added equipment, comfort,space and power what more could you ask for from a multi purpose vehicle?.
Does the Verso offer a good price structure?
Well the answer to that question would be a good price and that in our opinion is exactly what the Verso delivers upon. Active models can be purchased for £16,995 with Icon models being made available from £20,300. Moving further down the line is the Trend from £22,800 and last but not least we have our last entrant into the mix the Excel which can be purchased from £23,800 from your local Toyota showroom.
