penny counts .

DEPENDING ON WHICH MANUFACTURER YOU TO, sales of family-sized MPVs are holding their own in these market condition or people are away from them superminis or, if load space is a into estates. Whatever the one thing is certain: that for people down-sizing and down-pricing are the driving issues in today s motoring world.

Which us to the new Toyota Verso MPV, utilises the latest Toyota Drive technology to reduce consumption, increase power and produce less CO2. from Ј16,745, a seven-seat, MPV with improvements in driving quality, specification and safety to be a smart purchase #151; if an MPV is you need.

Families through to ’empty-nesters’ to drivers all use MPVs because of load and passenger carrying so there will always be a for such vehicles #151; in a global meltdown our real-world do not change that much. it might mean that we do not buy a new vehicle as often, but an MPV remains an model. If it’s more to drive then that is an because for many just an MPV can be boring.

Toyota does not huge numbers of Verso and they see around 4,500 of the new being delivered to UK customers year; the majority diesel. The TR specification has most appeal it comes to cost. In other the Ј18,945 Verso 2.0D-4D manual TR is the optimum and likely popular model.

Prices go up to Ј20,670 for the top specification with the same engine, and are yet to be announced for the 2.2-litre diesel which comes later in the but only with automatic

Toyota designers might visited, amongst other IKEA car parks, where interviewed shoppers to get their on what a mid-sized family MPV offer, but in truth the new Verso is not different to any other well-made The vehicle accommodates up to seven in three rows of seats. required, the seats easily flat to form a level floor of up to 1,696 litres, and the all open wide for easy Nothing groundbreaking here,

Toyota Verso

However, reliability and build will, because it is a Toyota, be class although I found the trim plastics to be on the fragile or side and they scuff-marked easily, so durability for real-life use might be an issue. Other include the seat squabs for the two seats #151; they are on the side for long-legged users; and the A-pillars are wide so front-quarter is not perfect.

I had the opportunity to drive engine options available at launch #151; more follow. First up was the 1.8-litre petrol engine: this is new and lift and duration control the variable timing of the inlet to deliver more power for fuel and less CO2 emissions. over the old 1.8-VVT-I unit is up by to 145bhp; torque increases by 7lb ft to ft at 4,600rpm; CO2 emissions are down to 165g/km; and the official combined fuel consumption improves 36.7 to 40.4mpg.

My Ј17,745 1.8 TR test car was right on the at 40mpg, so I am impressed. The engine is revs freely, is pretty and for most retail, low to medium users will be the best Even the Ј150 road tax is not too bad.

On the other hand, the of Verso users will higher mileages, so the 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine with and 228lb ft of torque from will fit their bill: CO2 are 143g/km and road tax is Ј125 a Fuel economy, officially, be 51.4mpg on average. My test car did returning 53.3mpg over winding Portuguese roads. On showing, Toyota’s Optimal technology really does

I also had the chance for a brief of the 2.2-litre, 148bhp/251lb ft diesel will be coming to the UK later in the fitted with the new six-speed gearbox. Yes it is good and gutsy, but the 30.4mpg fuel economy of the official 41.5mpg figure and the road tax cost do need For those people who want with automatic gearboxes Verso fits the bill. No prices have yet been but expect Ј20,000+.

All in all, the new Toyota Verso is a and safe buy. Well from the bottom model up most of the usual items as electric windows and door plus air conditioning and Vehicle Assist and traction control. that is a small boot the rear row of seats in use (178 some cheap interior and small seat squabs for the seats.

Good points a wider range of models, fuel economy, lower CO2 2.0-litre diesel engine clever and easy to use fold-a-way and comprehensive safety equipment. The styling and versatile seating also appeal, as too will the good fuel economy The Verso may not be the sexiest set of wheels you can buy but it is fit-for-purpose. #151; David
