There'll be no shortage of used examples on the market but the base-level T2 models are best avoided unless you're on a budget - the TR is better value for money and comes with key equipment such as alloy wheels, Bluetooth and rear electric windows.
Be aware that if you want the most powerful 2.2-litre diesel, it's not available with a manual gearbox, only a six-speed automatic.
The Verso (previously known as the Corolla Verso) has an excellent reputation for reliability and build quality. This means it's always sought after as a second hand buy, so you should have no problems selling one. The 2.0-litre diesel will be the most popular choice for buyers.
