Pros & cons


Plenty of interior space, comfortable and easy to drive, top build quality, seven seats


Not a huge leap forward over the Corolla Verso, tight rear seats are tricky to get to, dull cabin

Written by David Ross Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019


Well built, practical and reliable – the Toyota Verso is an ideal people carrier for families. It replaces the Corolla Verso, but despite similar looks, is an entirely different model with improved space and refinement.

Practical seven-seater

It comes with seven-seats as standard and the rear five can be individually folded down to create plenty of passenger and luggage carrying combinations. The interior finish is everything you’d expect from a Toyota, so it’s a shame that it’s so drab.

The same can be said of the driving experience, which although comfortable, lacks sparkle. But comfort levels are superb and it’s an easy car to drive, particularly in town, with light steering and good visibility. The quality of Toyota dealers is another good reason why this is such an attractive buy.

Furthermore, the Verso was awared the highest possible score in the Euro NCAP crash testing programme. Built with families in mind, it’s loaded with safety gear to give you peace of mind.

As with all new Toyota products, you get a five-year/100,000-mile warranty to cover any mechanical issues that may arise.
