What used Toyota Verso MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Toyota Verso MPV?

While the Verso requires servicing every 10,000 miles, running costs are reasonable and it should prove no more expensive to maintain than a Ford Focus C-Max or Vauxhall Zafira.

Similarly, fuel economy is good, if not spectacular, and our favourite 2.2-litre D-4D engine gives an official fuel return of 44.8mpg. That makes it the most economical engine in the Verso range, but the equivalent Ford Focus manages 50.4mpg.

Buy the more powerful 178bhp diesel and economy drops to 41.5mpg, but that still keeps it ahead of the 37.7mpg 1.6-litre and 36.7mpg 1.8-litre petrol engines.

Insurance doesn't look too bad for most models, either. At one end of the scale, the entry-level 1.6-litre petrol needs just group 5 cover, while our recommended 2.2 D-4D T3 is in group 8. However, the top-spec diesel attracts a group 11 rating - that's the price to be paid for a 0-60mph time of just 8.8sec.
