Is the Toyota Verso suitable for transporting bicycles?

I have £8000 to spend including a trade-in, and need a vehicle that is capable of transporting cycles and gear either inside or on the roof. I have looked at a 2006 Toyota Verso T3 1.8 petrol with 49,000 miles. What should I pay for this, and is it a good choice from their range?

But surely a Citroen Berlingo Multispace would be better for this job?
