Which used Toyota Verso MPV should I buy?

There are four engines to choose from and our pick of the bunch is the 134bhp 2.2-litre D-4D turbodiesel. If you're buying the Verso to regularly carry large numbers of passengers and plenty of gear, its 229lb ft of pulling power will be just what you want, providing strong, effortless performance.

There's also a more powerful 175bhp diesel with a massive 276lb ft of pulling power, but unless you plan to tow regularly it really isn't necessary.

The 184bhp 1.8-litre petrol does an okay job, but the 109bhp, 1.6-litre petrol, like the slow-changing MMT semi-manual transmission, is best avoided.

There are four different trim levels available: T2, T3, TR and T Spirit, the latter getting a built-in DVD player. A T3-spec car should suit most needs, however, with climate, cruise and traction control and alloy wheels.
