New diesel for Toyota Verso
- Two versions, with 134- and 175bhp
- Cleanest diesel on the market
- Only small price increases
The Toyota Verso compact MPV will be available with a new, more powerful diesel engine from November, and will cost from £16,100.
The 2.2-litre engine will come with two power outputs, 134bhp and 175bhp, although the higher-output version will only be available in the top-spec T180 model.
The 134bhp diesel cars cost just £100 more than the old 2.0-litre diesel model, however power rises by 20bhp, and fuel consumption drops by less than 1mpg. The top-spec 175bhp Verso delivers 42.8mpg.
This new diesel engine has already been introduced into the Toyota Avensis, and will also feature in next spring’s new RAV4 off-roader.
The 134bhp version is available in T2, T3 and T Spirit specification, but the T180 gets 17-inch alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, special interior trim and a leather steering wheel included with the £20,900 price tag.
