Review

Incredible versatility thanks to its seating for up to nine people and a fine option if space is your absolute priority, but don’t expect the van-based Toyota Proace Verso to drive as well as smaller MPVs, or look as nice inside.

It's available in one length only, Long, and gets ‘just’ seven seats to give its occupants room to stretch out in comfort. Standard kit includes leather seats, a panoramic roof, a surround-sound hi-fi, electric front seats with lumbar support and massage function, and a second row that can rotate 180 degrees.

The most powerful engine in the line-up will see off 0-62mph in 8.8sec and is available only with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, which is smooth but a bit slow. It makes easy work of motorway journeys thanks to the additional power. The only trouble is that it’s significantly more expensive than the 148bhp version and you can ‘only’ have a maximum of eight seats.
