Dec 05, 2012– London, UK (Techreleased) – The Toyota Verso will be lining up alongside the new British-built Toyota Auris and, later in 2013, the Auris Touring Sports estate car. Featuring the new Toyota family “face” with its keen-edged headlights, full-width upper grille and enlarged lower grille, the new Verso offers a fresh, sharp design, while the cabin, too has been upgraded.
Prices are very competitive, starting at £17,495 for the five-seat 1.6 Valvematic Active model. At the other end of the eight-model range, the seven-seat 2.0 D-4D and 1.8 Valvematic petrol Excel versions come in at £23,445 on-the-road.
Entry-level Verso Active comes equipped with front fog lights, air-conditioning, electric front windows, Hill-start Assist Control and, on the seven-seat version, Toyota’s quick and simple Easy Flat folding system for the rear seats.
Verso Icon grade benefits from a more extensive range of features than current Verso’s core TR trim, with the addition of cruise control, a DAB digital tuner, rear privacy glass and a folding function on the electrically adjustable door mirrors. Icon models also gain new two-tone, machine-finished 16-inch alloy wheels.
At the top of the range, Verso Excel models come with new-design 17-inch alloys and a raft of premium features, including new leather seat bolsters, Smart Entry and Start, roof rails and automatic headlights and windscreen wipers.
Where options are concerned, the Toyota Touch multimedia touchscreen control system on the Icon and Excel models can be upgraded to Touch & Go, adding satellite navigation and on-board connectivity to Google Local Search (with appropriate mobile phones and service plans) with access to useful applications for more detailed local information and resources.
A Skyview panoramic roof is also available for Icon and Excel models. One of the largest on the market, it brings significantly more light into the cabin, increasing the sense of spaciousness (it cannot be fitted when roof rails are specified). An Appearance Pack is available for Icon grade, which provides bi-xenon HID headlights and LED daytime running lights with roof rails.
