New chapter for Verso
The new Toyota Verso compact MPV joins the British-built Auris to strengthen Toyota's presence in the family/compact car market in 2013.
With the all-new, fourth-generation RAV4 and Auris Touring Sports estate car also scheduled for 2013, Toyota will achieve unprecedented representation in the heart of the car market.
The new-look Verso, which broke cover at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September, adopts new styling that aligns it closely with the stronger design language display by the new Auris. This is most striking at the front, where the Toyota "family" design elements are evident in the keen-edged headlamp units, the narrow, full-width upper grille, and the larger trapezoidal lower grille. New door mirrors and new-design wheels are also among the more than 300 detail changes that have been made to the vehicle.
In the cabin, the perceived quality has been raised with new trim materials and a consistent approach to the lighting and graphics used for the instruments and controls. New upholstery designs also featured.

The powertrain line-up has been carried forward, but with engine and transmission choice adjusted within the range in line with customer preferences. Notably, the 2.0 D-4D diesel engine has been revised for better torque delivery at low revs and quieter running. At the same time, the engine's CO2 emissions have been reduced by 10g/km to fall below 130g/km.
The Verso range adopts a new three-grade structure: Active, Icon and Excel. Entry point is the five-seat Active with the 1.6 Valvematic petrol engine and six-speed manual transmission.
A high specification is provided across all grades, with even the entry-level Active coming equipped with front fog lights, air conditioning, electric front windows, Hill-start Assist Control and, on the seven-seat version, Toyota's quick and simple Easy Flat folding system for the rear seats.
Icon grade benefits from a more extensive range of features than the current Verso's core TR trim, with the addition of cruise control, a DAB digital tuner, rear privacy glass and a folding function on the electrically adjustable door mirrors. Icon models also gain new two-tone, machine-finished 16in alloy wheels.
At the top of the range, Verso Excel models come with new-design 17in alloys and a raft of premium features, including new leather seat bolsters, Smart Entry and Start, roof rails and automatic headlights and windscreen wipers.
The Toyota Touch multimedia touchscreen control system on the Icon and Excel models can be upgraded to Touch & Go (£650), adding satellite navigation and on-board connectivity to Google Local Search (with appropriate mobile phones and service plans) with access to useful applications for more detailed local information and resources.
A Skyview panoramic roof is available for Icon and Excel models (£550). One of the largest on the market, it brings significantly more light into the cabin, increasing the sense of spaciousness (it cannot be fitted when roof rails are specified). An Appearance Pack is available for Icon grade, which provides bi-xenon HID headlights and LED daytime running lights with roof rails (£700).
