Which used Toyota Yaris Verso estate should I buy?

There's a choice of two engines: the 1.3-litre 84bhp petrol or the 1.4-litre 74bhp D-4D diesel. The former is great for city use but you'll need to work it hard to get decent performance, and it's noisy at motorway speeds.

The diesel, on the other hand, is more relaxed when you're cruising, but very noisy around town. There's extra low-down power that the petrol doesn't have, but it feels flat at higher revs. In the end, which you buy will come down to personal choice, but both are acceptable performers.

Standard kit on all models includes twin airbags, remote central locking, electric front windows and a radio cassette player. S models have 13-inch alloys and tinted glass, while GS gets a better sound system and 14-inch wheels. A sunroof and electric mirrors are part of GLS trim. In early 2003 the names changed to T2, T3 and T Spirit.
