Toyota Corolla Verso

The new-generation Toyota Corolla Verso will challenge the way that owners of MPVs, hatchbacks and sports saloons choose and run their cars. Style, versatility and sheer driving enjoyment are all trade marks of this new vehicle. Although a fully-fl edged, seven-seat family car, the all-new Corolla Verso also offers a level of driving dynamics and superior quality far beyond that which compact MPV drivers are used to.

The latest in new technology and innovative standards of passive and active safety all feature heavily in a car that sets the standard for others to follow in versatility, modularity, flexibility and resourcefulness. And packaged in an all-new neat and beautiful dynamic design, the Corolla Verso will be turning heads as well as street corners.

This new car will be available throughout Europe with two equipment grades Terra and Sol. Both of them deliver the features that the most demanding customers would expect

from a C-segment MPV.

All this makes the Toyota Corolla Verso a key player in a competitive segment, and one which will attract the attentions of a new type of buyer young couples or parents,

active adults who live their lives to the full and are looking for something a bit more special than just another family car.

For these target customers the new Toyota Corolla Verso offers dynamic versatility.

This year Toyota expects to sell close to 53,000 units of the new Toyota Corolla Verso, in addition to 13,000 of the current model.

Body and chassis

The all-new Corolla Verso’s exterior design was created at Toyota’s European design studio, ED2. The style incorporates SUV-derived elements in the lower body and captures also design cues from several other Toyota models that grant this car the unmistakable Toyota identity.

The Corolla Verso’s complete redesign means it’s now taller and wider than its predecessor but the new-look’s smooth lines and aerodynamic body still achieve a Cd of just 0.30, the best in the segment. The slick shape has contributed to a further reduction in wind noise especially around the windscreen wipers and underneath the car which additionally aids driving stability. New sound deadening materials and an acoustic-glass windscreen contribute to the quiet ride.

Light and precise steering has been tuned and designed for maximum driving enjoyment. The steering wheel has a more sporty position than in the former Corolla Verso and adjustment for rake and reach is now available. Using a totally new platform, the Corolla Verso produces an exciting and exhilarating drive in a smart and fl exible

package. Improved suspension the front taken from Toyota Avensis gives the car posture and stability with a dynamic feel through the steering, whether there is one person on board or seven.

And thanks to parts that are less expensive and easier to replace, the Corolla Verso also offers class-leading repair costs, confi rmed by the sector’s best insurance classifi cation ratings both in Germany and UK.


The Corolla Verso offers a selection of engines to suit most tastes. All engines feature in the larger Toyota Avensis the nippy 110 DIN hp 1.6 litre VVT-i (Variable Valve Timingintelligent) or more powerful 129 DIN hp 1.8 litre VVT-i fuel-injected petrol engines offer sport, exhilaration and performance. The 2.0-litre D-4D diesel engine, which delivers 116 DIN hp, has all the answers in terms of torque, robustness and fuel economy, responding to the needs of the segment costumers.

The 1.6-litre and 1.8-litre engines comply already with EURO IV regulations, as the 2.0 D-4D diesel produces, in average, 47% less particulate matter emissions than its rivals.

The 1.8-litre VVT-i unit is also available with a new 5-speed Multi-mode Manual Transmission (M-MT) that provides a combination of automatic and sequential shifting. When used in automatic mode, it contributes to a reduction in fuel comsumption compared to a manual transmission. In addition, the M-MT is much lighter and more compact than a conventional automatic.

Safety and security Toyota is confi dent the new Corolla Verso is now a top player in its group for overall safety. Built into its design the car features Toyota’s Minimal Intrusion Cabin System (MICS), the same structure that helped the Toyota Avensis establish top results in the Euro NCAP tests. The car boasts some segment-fi rsts like the innovative Cornering Assist Monitor, 5 which helps the driver “see” around blind corners, a total of nine airbags (including the segment’s fi rst knee airbag) and a two-stage visual and audio seatbelt warning system.

Top stopping performance comes courtesy of a braking system taken from the Toyota Avensis, in other words, better brakes from an upper-segment car. Four discs bring

the car to rest safely with the help of anti-lock brakes (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Toyota’s Brake Assist. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRC) are available throughout the range.

A car as eye-catching and attractive as the all-new Corolla Verso needs to be secure and with Toyota’s enhanced security measures in place, the owner’s confi dence can rise

as quickly as the insurance premiums drop. Among the list of measures adopted in this car are a new electric steering lock, an immobiliser fi tted in an inaccessible position and

two VIN plates in the bodyshell. A new tonneau cover hides the boot contents, and this can now cleverly be stored in the boot section when not in use.
