While were at it, they invested in a overhaul of the interior, endowing it a good deal more and equipment. The engines and running never generated any cause for and were largely left as were the existing trim T2, T3 and plush T Spirit models offered with a choice of a 109bhp 1.6-litre powerplant or a 127bhp engine.

What You Get

The shape is still of the original Corolla Verso but seems to have been up, as if the Verso has spent a month at Fit Club. The wheel arches are defined, and the front grille and are slimmer and sleeker. There’s a definite upper and lower to the car, helped by those shoulders which give it a far progressive look. Unlike similarly sized rivals, the Verso can seat seven uniquely in its class, all five seats fold down the floor to create a totally loading surface. This that you won’t need to heavy seats into and out of the car if carrying capacity is required. A lot of has gone into this the seats not only being the in class but also requiring a one-touch operation to fold one flat. The interior looks a deal sharper than the old with tighter manufacturing meaning panel fits are As with all manufacturers, Toyota worked hard at getting the slam’ sound exactly and the combination of carefully sited and clever air sealing makes the Verso sound more than Fort Knox you slam the doors shut. The used throughout the cabin been thoroughly upgraded too a combination of metallic finishes to the centre console. The design on geometric shapes and three-dimensional to render an arch like It’s quite unlike any Toyota interior and marks a new direction that’s surprisingly for a model that will be to some of the most conservative new car

The Corolla has a reputation for monotonous reliability and the is no exception. A long-term vehicle we didn’t miss a beat its tenure with us despite subjected to all manner of long journeys. The seat folding is rugged and well thought but make sure the seat haven’t been damaged removed from the car. The area itself is also and the engines and running gear similarly bombproof. As long as the records have been adhered to it’s difficult to a more reliable proposition.

On the Road

The Corolla Verso be the choice of the driver who’s between a hot hatch and a mini-MPV but a great car for those who want a mini-MPV that can cruise and reliably. The 100bhp 1.6VVT-i isn’t a bad engine but most deem the additional zip of the 133bhp version well worth the There are far sportier choices in the mini-MPV sector and the Corolla majors instead on offering a ride and simplicity of operation. The feel a little wooden at but there’s no lack of bite you plant the pedal. One particularly point is the good all-round which is a major bonus in traffic and while easing tight parking spots.
