Starting from a strong base

Launched in 2013, the current Verso was developed exclusively for the European market.

The company's first full-scale project to incorporate European-based Product Planning, Design, RandD and Purchasing from inception, Verso was designed, engineered and built entirely under the leadership of Toyota Motor Europe.

Styled at ED2, Toyota's European design centre in France, and with over 470 changed parts (60% visible, 40% related to driving dynamics and NVH), the current Verso represented a comprehensive model mid-lifecycle upgrade for Toyota in Europe.

Tailored to meet the increasingly varied demands of today's MPV customer, the stylish, comfortable and flexible Verso range represents outstanding value for money. Within compact exterior dimensions, it boasts exceptional roominess with one of the best seat couple

distances in its class and the true multi-purpose vehicle versatility of the company's Easy Flat seating system.

Since the initial launch of the Verso in 2002, cumulative sales have risen to over 700,000 units. Built exclusively at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Turkey, the current Verso has sold some 40,000 units since its launch in 2013, increasing the company's C-MPV segment share to 4.6%.

New 1.6 D-4D, new features

The enhanced 2014 Verso features an expanded engine line-up which introduces a new 1.6 litre D-4D turbodiesel. The exterior benefits from a new bronze colour and new, 16" and 17" alloy wheel designs. The interior has been enhanced with new trim and detailing. And the company's range of affordable multimedia systems, Toyota Touch® 2, has been comprehensively upgraded.
