Aggressive new Toyota Verso coming 2013

19 Sep , 2012  

The new Toyota Verso will be unveiled at Paris 2012. The much needed rejuvenation of the Verso looks far more modern than the outgoing model.

Here are the main points:

  • New exterior design
  • Revised interior with changes to instruments and controls
  • Planning, design and engineering led by Toyota Motor Europe
  • Model to be built exclusively at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Turkey
  • UK specifications to be announced later in the year
  • Over 300 parts changed
  • European sales are expected to be about 50,000 in 2013
  • Luggage volume is 155 litres; when the third row is folded, the figure rises to 440 litres
  • Full-length panoramic roof is available, measuring 2,340 by 1,280mm
  • Revised 2.0-litre D-4D diesel engine, gives better torque delivery at low revs. CO2 emissions have also been reduced by 10g/km to fall below 130g/km
  • 2.2-litre D-CAT diesel engine develops 175bhp/131kW with 159g/km CO2 emissions
  • Towing capacity for all diesels increased to 1,500kg
  • 1.6 and 1.8-litre Valvematic petrol engines available
  • Extra welding points has improved body rigidity
  • Quieter cabin due to improved sound dampening, and smaller door mirrors
  • Power steering has been adjusted, too, for better feel and feedback.
