For The Verso is fairly compact by MPV standards, which means it’s pretty easy to park. There’s plenty of space in the front two rows of seats, and there's a decent-sized boot in five-seat mode.
Against It isn't as roomy as many rivals, and the seating layout is awkward to adjust. Space in the third row is tight, while engine refinement is also disappointing.
What Car? says
The Toyota Verso isn’t the biggest or most versatile MPV, and while it’s decent enough to drive in most respects, it’s let down by coarse and noisy engines.

The Toyota Verso isn't the biggest MPV, which is a blessing or a curse, depending on your viewpoint.
On one hand, it's compact enough to make parking easy, but on the other, it doesn't provide as much space in the third row of seats as most rivals.
There are two petrol engines: a 1.6 with a manual gearbox and a 1.8 with an automatic. Most buyers, though, will go for the 1.6-litre diesel, which delivers adequate performance but far too much engine noise and vibration.
Entry-level Active trim keeps prices low, but it misses out on some key features, including a DAB radio, electric rear windows, Bluetooth and alloy wheels.
We'd recommend Icon trim, which has everything you're likely to want, including a rear-view camera.
Most versions have seven seats, but Active models can be had in either five- or seven-seat form.
