Prices for the Verso are on a par with its key rivals', and discounts are reasonably generous. Running costs are competitive across the board, with the 1.6-litre diesel offering the most miles to the gallon, although you’ll lose more on depreciation than with rivals such as the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso. Company car costs are competitive, although the best rivals offer even lower monthly tax bills.
Toyota Verso quality & reliability
The Verso's cabin doesn't have much of a wow factor, but the build quality is decent, and it feels like it'll stand up to the rigours of family life. Toyotas normally have excellent reliability, and the Verso scored above average marks for reliability in the latest JD Power ownership satisfaction survey. It also comes with a five-year/100,000-mile warranty.
Toyota Verso safety & security
All versions come with seven airbags, which helped the Verso achieve the maximum five stars in its Euro NCAP crash test. However, while it scored well for pedestrian safety, adult and child safety was slightly below average by the standards of the class. Thatcham awarded the Verso five stars (out of five) for resisting drive-away, and four stars for guarding against being broken in to.
