Review: Toyota Verso S (2011 – 2013)
Upright seats. Practical interior. Touch screen system with reversing camera and £500 optional sat nav.
Not cheap, but even TR is well equipped and has reversing camera. Sales poor so model dropped in 2013.
Toyota Verso S (2011 – 2013): At A Glance
- Insurance Group 8

What does a Toyota Verso S (2011 – 2013) cost?
Toyota Verso S (2011 – 2013): What's It Like Inside?
- Boot space is 393–1388 litres
You get five upright fully belted seats, 60/40 split rear seats that fold with one touch, a lipless rear sill unless you drop the boot floor to give 393 litres of loadspace (336 litres without), an optional CVT-7 automatic transmission and, for the auto, £30 tax.
The T-Spirit has even more total bootspace because, instead of a space saver spare, it has a tyrefix kit, and that releases a total of 429 litres.
They all have height-adjustable front seats, multi adjustable steering wheels and, uniquely, a touch screen Bluetooth, information and entertainment system that doubles up as the screen for a reversing camera and, from May 2011, can be enhanced for £500 to become full scale satnav.
That should be a worthwhile upgrade because, like Audi’s latest systems, it can be used to access Google Local Search when paired up with a compatible smartphone.
