Toyota Verso-S 1.33 review (2011 onwards)

Toyota Verso-S 1.33

What is it?


The supermini-MPV isn’t one of the car world’s sexiest but compact kiddie carriers do an job. That is, they’re but they’ve still got lots of for moving the family around.

The Verso. incidentally, might slipped from the memory after being axed in if it wasn’t for its strange popemobile To the best of our knowledge, the car never in the papal transportation role its had apparently mapped out for it and its Verso-S is a lot better-looking. Let’s hope is a bit memorable too.

Where it fit?


The Verso-S into the Toyota range the larger Verso MPV. its more substantial sibling, the only comes with seats and at 3,990mm long, just a fraction longer the Yaris supermini that its chassis.

The car is exactly as wide as the Yaris too but the diverge when we look at the Toyota has grafted an extra onto the MPV producing a roomier, feeling cabin that’s to feel more so by a full-length roof.

Toyota might carved out the supermini-MPV niche the Yaris Verso but rival were quick to fill it. The has to contend with tough from Nissan’s Note. C3 Picasso. Kia’s Venga and

Its cause isn’t helped by the of a diesel engine from the Toyota preferring to rely on its advanced 1.33-litre VVT-i The 98hp unit comes with a six-speed manual or the Multidrive-S CVT automatic featuring shifters and no fewer than stepped ratios. It’s the auto model we’re here in the plushest T Spirit

Is it for you?


A supermini MPV suit you if you need more than a supermini can muster but you want to forgo small car and running costs. There’s a bit to it than raw carrying capacity because the Verso-S and its rivals practical MPV solutions around the seats and boot area to the most of what space is.

With T Spirit trim and the Multidrive-S transmission, Toyota’s costs over £17,500. looks a heavy outlay for a family runabout but less versions start from £14,800. Toyota’s touchscreen system comes as standard on All models as does the brand’s warranty.


The Verso-S is set up for town driving with its dimensions, light steering and all-round visibility. You might that a reversing camera of overkill on a car that’s as straightforward to as this one but Toyota has chucked one in on the T model nevertheless.

The engine and gearbox combo is high-tech. What with dual variable valve-timing continuously adjusting the 1.33-litre combustion parameters and the belt-driven ‘box continuously varying the ratios, it should be adaptable to any To go with the racy paddle there’s even a Sport that lets you flip the between Normal and Sport according to taste.

The gearbox well enough in traffic but on the road when you want to swifter progress, it can get a little There are times when the throttle seems to do more to up the engine’s volume than the speed. The artificial steps of the shift manual mode do matters because you can lock the car the ratio you want but noise from the 98hp engine are very high.

What’s it to live with?

The back of the Verso-S isn’t as with MPV gimmicks as the rears of rivals. There’s a neat folding mechanism for the back but they don’t slide and aft. A separate storage beneath the boot floor carrying capacity but in the main, the sheer volume of the Verso-S that’s its strongest suit.

freely admit that I have the chance to test a carrying capacity to the limit but the arose during my week the Verso-S and it passed with colours. Believe it or not, the rear seats folded a full-size washing machine and (both still in their packaging) fit comfortably in the back of car. It really is deceptively

There’s good news for as well as white goods. is abundant and rear legroom is generous thanks in part to the front seats. The general quality is sturdy but you’ll higher-grade plastics in rivals and design is typically middle-of-the-road.

How green is it?

The clever engine and come into their own on the economy front. 54mpg a 98hp petrol engine is an strong showing and the CVT auto is a bit more efficient than the model.

Toyota explains the lack of a diesel engine in the lineup by saying that buyers in this class struggle to recoup the typical paid for a diesel engine in savings. You can see its point when with oil-burning power return mpg in the low 60s but some weight is from its argument by the £17,000 price for this model. diesel versions of rivals can be had for money.

The eco-credentials of the 1.33-litre are further underlined when you its 120g/km emissions with rivals packing close to

Would we buy it?


The Verso-S is almost spookily roomy for its and should prove cheap to It looks good too but is all that to make you buy one? The leading in the supermini-MPV class integrate big MPV alongside all kinds of little nuances to make you feel about owning them. The doesn’t quite get those details right.
