The Verso-S isn’t particularly cheap to buy, but running costs will be low because it averages 51.4mpg with the manual gearbox and 54.3 with the CVT. The CVT gearbox also brings CO2 emissions down from 127g/km to 120g/km, meaning small road tax bills.
Toyota Verso-S MPV quality & reliability
There’s a lot of hard, grey plastic in the cabin, so it doesn’t have much wow factor, but it’s solidly built and the materials seem hard-wearing. The Verso-S also offers the reassurance of a five-year/100,000 mile warranty, and Toyota has a fine record when it comes to reliability and customer satisfaction.
Toyota Verso-S MPV safety & security
Safety is crucial in MPVs, whatever their size. Fortunately, every Verso-S comes with seven airbags, stability control and front seats that have been designed to minimise whiplash in the event of a rear-end shunt. Security kit is also pretty comprehensive, with deadlocks, an engine immobiliser and an alarm all standard.
