All-new Verso-S: Lowest CO2 emissions and best fuel economy of any mini-MPV in the UK

Toyota Verso-S

Toyota can be credited with originating the mini-MPV concept 10 years ago when it launched Yaris Verso. With Verso-S it re-enters the segment at a time of significant growth: European sales have almost tripled since 2002 as motorists look to downsize and take advantage of the convenience, efficiency and user friendliness of the mini-MPV.

As we revealed here, the Verso-S represents another Toyota masterclass in maximising interior space in a compact car. This all-new mini-MPV is shorter overall than any of its market rivals but includes brilliant features such as a two-position lightweight deckboard and one-touch 60:40 folding rear seats.

All versions of the new Verso-S are powered by Toyota’s 98bhp 1.33-litre VVT-i Toyota Optimal Drive petrol engine, delivering the lowest CO2 emissions and best fuel economy in the mini-MPV segment.

When matched with the six-speed manual transmission, Verso-S delivers 127g/km and combined cycle fuel economy of 51.4mpg. Thanks the higher efficiency of the automatic-style Multidrive S CVT – the only transmission of its kind in its class – CO2 figures are lower still at 120g/km, with an improvement in average fuel consumption to 54.3mpg (combined cycle).

  1. May 2013……Just over two years after launching the Verso S in UK I hear that Toyota are removing it from sale with the last orders for UK sales to be taken in July

    Toyota never really promoted the Verso S in UK compared to the New Yaris

    I owned one of the first Verso S imported to UK and never understood why Toyota GB never got on with an advertising campaign for this model

    I have now sold my VersoS and purchased a Yaris Trend 🙂
