Toyota Verso-S T-Spirit CVT: Road test

The Verso-S is designed to fill a left by the Yaris Verso was discontinued in the late nineties. to be compact on the outside but big on the inside, so new and sets this Toyota from established rivals as the Citroen C3 Picasso and Vauxhall

I spent a week with the 1.33 VVT-i T-Spirit to out.

The Verso-S’s overall is tall and narrow, much any other mini-MPV on sale. the styling gets really is the short front and rear which give the Toyota a look which is almost at the rear.

Other modern touches to the include the sculpting to the sides of the with a cut-out at the bottom and of tight shutlines.

Overall, I the Verso-S’s styling almost like a scaled down of its bigger brother, the Verso.

On the side, perhaps it’s me but I’m sure there’s Honda Jazz influence in too? My favourite part of the has to be the way that the A-pillars flow into the long roofline.

Our car was fitted with the only available for the Verso-S, the 98bhp VVT-i petrol. Even mated with the CVT transmission the test car), the baby MPV can achieve 54.3mpg with CO2 of 120g/km, so this Toyota prove cheap to run.

This is a small car and despite the body is easy to park, but I the rear camera that’s as part of the Touch system useful for tight spaces. I do if parking sensors would done as good a job? The light electric power steering is fine in town, but vague and doesn’t encourage driving on the open road.

no pleasure to be found in attacking corners in the Verso-S either, as too much body roll, the CVT of the test car lacks involvement and the is imprecise. The Meriva is more fun to

The ride is generally good, but road scars will it.

Inside, the Verso-S feels rather than well-made. has a reputation for quality and reliability, but are some dodgy, scratchy and the passenger side electric failed during the week of our Thankfully, all the switchgear feels and is logically placed.

Despite the engine being capable its size, it turns thrashy worked. However, it’s bad with the smooth CVT transmission, motorway driving and overtaking a noisy, thrashy experience.

The CVT transmission gives relaxed With 60mph coming up in seconds and a top speed of 103mph the Verso-S isn’t going to win any awards either. A five-speed version is also available and be our choice.

The Verso-S’s doors wide and the driving position is but it’s a shame the seats more supportive. This has exceptional interior space and especially in the back. There’s a useful 365 litres of luggage in the boot, which can be extended to 393 via the clever sliding, fold rear seats.

In range-topping T-Spirit trim, the is well-equipped with electrically door mirrors, electric windows, a touch-screen display reversing camera, air-conditioning, a multi-function steering wheel, glass roof, alloy rear electric windows and glass for the rear side

Our test car was fitted with the £500 Touch Go touchscreen system, that includes and USB connectivity for iPods. Sadly, the are not very detailed, but I was impressed at how I could pair my phone the Bluetooth system.

So would I the Verso-S against established Well, it’s bound to be to run and there’s no doubt that the is spacious and well-equipped. The biggest is that there are many that do the same or more and be more exciting to own.
