Multi purpose vehicles hold a very strong place in the present and future of the automotive industry. They are perfectly designed and spacious vehicles which can give you and your family a great day out. It is a vehicle segment that does the job by getting you from A to B whilst at the same time offering some decent power and good equipment.

A strong member of the Toyota line up since 2010,the seven seater Verso has found itself being purchased on multiple occasions all around the world and it has achieved some great success over the years including being rated five stars in it's Euro NCAP safety tests. Today we are taking an in depth look into what makes this Verso something special and why out of all multi purpose vehicles you should decide to spend your money on the Verso.
Trim levels and wide options for the seven seater Verso
Well Toyota offer their Verso model in one of four trim level options. We first have the entry level Active range and then you can however decide to upgrade to the Icon trim level. Trend is the mid range setup and your range topper is the Excel setup. Across the entire range we see that Toyota offer the car with both diesel and petrol engines with two 1.6 litre engines kicking of the Active models with one diesel and one petrol on offer. All trim levels are offered with one diesel and one petrol except for the Icon which sees a choice of two petrols and one diesel. All diesel engines are offered with a manual gearbox only but if you opt into the Icon,Trend or Excel trims then petrol engines can be chosen to be paired to an automatic transmission.
Equipment wise Toyota are very generous when it comes to entry level Active models as we see some highlights including the likes of daytime running lights,LED tail lights and heated door mirrors brought into the mix. Icon trims however see some more advanced equipment such as stability control,tinted windows and chrome trimmings. It is the Trend model where the kit begins to get more technical and fancy though and this is clearly demonstrated by a smokey design on the seventeen inch alloy wheels,parking sensors and all new decals. Of course the range topping model is where everything is brought into play. This adds LED daytime running lights,seventeen inch alloy wheels with a graphite design, rain sensing windscreen wipers and automatic headlights are also included. Some great interior gadgets are also added throughout the range with electric windows and a multi functioning steering wheel thrown in as standard, Bluetooth, a DAB digital radio,cruise control,leather trimmings and a dual zone air conditioning system all making their way across the range.
What vehicles best offer the Verso a run for its money?
So when we look at some of the finest in rival competition for the Toyota Verso we cant help but think of some great vehicle additions such as the likes of the Mazda 3 and the Renault Scenic. Power, equipment and all round interior space all three of these vehicles can compare to each other considerably well. Even value for money wise the Verso is a great car in our opinion with prices beginning from £16,995 for the Active trim models and costs rising up to £23,800 for top of the range Excel vehicles.
