‘CHAPTER & VERSO’
Added 15th March, 2019

The Verso has always been a car you bought because it made sense. This one though, does a bit more than that. Its compact seven-seat family layout still ruthlessly ticks almost every practical box. And it remains a solidly appealing take-it-as-you-find-it, get-the-job-done kind of vehicle that's thoroughly user-friendly, especially with its easy-to-operate seating system. As before, you'll find that almost nothing will go wrong and that everything will feel just right.
All that we've known since the third generation version of this Toyota was launched in 2009. The difference with this facelifted MK3 model though was that this recipe came with the injection of a little extra luxury and a lot of extra personality. True, those aren't the attributes that will have first prompted you to buy a People Carrier but in a closely-fought market where every contender seems similarly specced, they're the things that can make the difference. And they created in this car a quieter, smarter, more efficient, more comfortable and just plain better Verso.
Overall, there are few more practical, more reliable or better built choices from this era in this segment. So with this MPV, you can make a head choice with a bit of heart too.
