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 as crammed with MPV gimmicks as the of some rivals. There’s a one-touch folding mechanism for the seats but they don’t fore and aft. A separate compartment beneath the boot adds carrying capacity but in the it’s the sheer volume of the interior that’s its strongest

I’ll freely admit I rarely have the chance to a car’s carrying capacity to the but the opportunity arose during my with the Verso-S and it passed flying colours. Believe it or with the rear seats down a full-size washing and dishwasher (both still in polystyrene packaging) fit comfortably in the of this car. It really is large.

There’s good for passengers as well as white Headroom is abundant and rear is also generous thanks in to the slimline front seats. The build quality is sturdy but find higher-grade plastics in and Toyota’s design is typically

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 user-friendly, almost roomy for its size and should cheap to run. It looks too but is all that enough to make you buy The leading lights in the supermini-MPV integrate big MPV features alongside all of little look-and-feel nuances to you feel good about them. The Verso-S doesn’t get those important details
