Range structure not digested Calling the T180 a model is optimistic Top-end rather expensive Cornering of questionable utility

Toyota’s cars may not be the most glamorous on the but they are undoubtedly among the practical. Verso signifies space and interior flexibility, and its best expression of all in the Corolla which almost seems to the functionality of a full-sized MPV into the of a compact MPV.

The secret of the Verso’s success since its launch and its continuing appeal lies in its disarming simplicity. No Toyota’s engineers have put an incredibly complex car, but main achievement was making the remarkably easy to configure and Controls, switches, levers and all operate with minimum little effort and do exactly you expect them to. That may rather obvious, but it’s not the case in a sector of the market frequently overcomplicates matters in an to impress.

Every compact MPV needs a piece. The Corolla Verso’s is its to offer up to seven seats five of which are full-sized or a huge, completely flat with equal aplomb. from one to the other, or any of the combinations in is straightforward and can mainly be achieved the use of one hand in a matter of seconds.

The of new 2.2-litre diesel engines in 2005 broadened the already range. The more powerful unit is even being as a performance variant dubbed complete with rakish wheels. However, with a time of nine seconds only half a second than the 134bhp model, and the decidedly unsporty MPV shape, claims fail to convince.
