Toyota Verso gets upgrades

The choice available to European customers of the Toyota Verso has been made even greater with the compact MPV gaining a new Trend Plus grade.

Its credentials as ideal family transport are strengthened by the addition of a rear seat DVD entertainment system as standard. The package includes neatly integrated seatback mounts with dual monitors for independent DVD playback, or, with appropriate accessories, computer gaming. Recognising the popularity of sophisticated in-car entertainment, Toyota is also offering the system as an option on Icon, Trend and Excel models in a variety of configurations.

Trend Plus models further benefit from leather upholstery for the front and second row seats and from the Toyota Touch 2 with Go touchscreen-controlled multimedia and connectivity system with integrated satellite navigation. Other features, shared with the established Trend grade, include new-design 17-inch alloy wheels, front parking sensors, dual-zone air conditioning, rear privacy glass, power windows, seven airbags, front fog lamps and fold-down seatback tables for second row passengers.

All Verso’s powertrains comply with Euro 6 emissions standards. The options are a 1.6-litre petrol Valvematic unit with six-speed manual transmission; 1.8-litre Valvematic petrol with Multidrive S CVT; and 1.6-litre D-4D diesel with six-speed manual gearbox.
