Toyota Corolla Verso

owned a Corolla Verso (automatic) for a year now, and its fantastic. We’ve a little boy and a girl, and it is an ideal family car for us. them and their parapharnalia is painless! I had testdrives in its MPV competitors and came out the best as it met our needs a spacious family car which is to drive.

The car itself is very lots of head and legroom tons of storage pockets and holders – I’m finding new ones! In the front the and controls are attractive and modern and it has a nice leather steering All the dials and controls are easy to and use, and the passenger and driver have arm rests making an comfortable ride luxurious.

are comfortable as are the seat belts, and the heights in the front adjust and etc. The stereo is quite but the basic controls for that and the CD are on the steering column. There’s a sunroof in the front and an electric one in the though the aircon is so good we remember to use them. There are interior lights for front and too.

Everything is nicely finished and the quality (seat covering) is

The best thing about the (for families) is that on side of the rear passenger there is a pop-up booster which is superb for small It gives them good and their feet rest in own footwell – keeping off the seat in front! The middle drops down ma,king a with drinks holders for the passengers and I’d imagine this is also a great way to squabbling children!!

Using a babyseat in the car is easy as the car is higher off the than normal family Door open wide and are so they dont feel they’d blow open in a of wind when you’ve got hands full. The boot to horizontal, giving excellent when its raining and you’re the weekly shop or whatever.

The Verso label refers to the height of the car. This is excellent in terms of passengers in and out (older passengers have on how comfortable and easy it is to do this), and for loading the bootspace, as there is no to lower things into or things out of the boot – the of the boot is the same level as the of the car – there is no ‘lip’ to things over.

The parcel folds back in sections to you to reach into the back of the easily, and the seats all come out to greater space for transporting and bikes etc. There’s of space for a pram as well as

The car itself is really easy to I’m not tall, and yet I’ve had visibility problems and it handles on corners and so on. Sometimes when uphill on motorways it seems to power, but acceleration can be boosted by a button and taking overdrive off effectively dropping a gear.

It’s just had its first which revealed no problems at all and its not exactly economical mine is an and I chose this feature for of driving rather than There have been no costs at all and I’ve never to top up oil or water etc. Toyota do a plan which roughly out at Ј300 for 3 years servicing.

I pay by DD so its noticeable and they seem to done a thorough check. a valet clean would been much appreciated.

All in all a car. Lots of well out features, nicely finished and a pleasure to drive and I’d have can be a two seater a boot the size of a small van (a up double mattress will lie in the back) a spacious 5 seater ample head, leg and shoulder all round and a large boot big for a dog cage and push chair or a 7 minibus (with very boot space – for a few squashed up coats).

It has cruise control, a six speed gearbox, rear parking all round alloys with brakes and front fog lights. The CD also reads mp3 format Best of all it has duel zone control and rear privacy to help keep it cool.

driving around town the shows that I average 60 mpg and on the over 70 mpg. However is about 10% over the real as my lowest self calculated mpg was 52 mpg to 60 mpg as a best ever on a full

Refinement is good as the gear are set perfect.

30 mph is 1400 rpm in 4th

40 mph is 1400 rpm in 5th

50 mph is rpm in 6th

70 mph is 2100 rpm in 6th

This means you never need to take the above 2000 rpm so it stays quite. If you go up to 3000 rpm + it takes off a scalded cat and you reach the speed in next to no time. Even 7 adults on board the engine break into a sweat.

There is enough space for 7 if you adjust all the chairs on the runners, leg room is then tight for all less so if you just have kids in the back.


60 mpg, refined motorway very flexible rear 5 fold flat seats, up driving position, real in punch above 30 mph.


Poor turning circle, armrests too small to be comfortable, cup can only take the smallest water bottles, right indicator self cancels too (if you are turning right on a roundabout and to initially turn left it cancel), electric windows and don’t work unless the key is in the and start button is pressed.

– headlights don’t very far unless on full computer can only show one of info at a time (not to see both the clock and current mpg at the time etc), dashboard is illuminated but dims when you put headlights on (good so you don’t get at night, bad when at dusk the dimmed dash it difficult to

I would recommend this I also test drove of its competitors in comparison to the verso:

5: Lower driving position, 6 … sized seats

VW Diesel engine much and seats have to be removed to use all boot space

C4 Picasso: much bigger but feels smaller on inside and the driving is not comfortable as it is offset.

Ford Too long and wide and feels inside

Honda FRV: seats 6 and feels small and compared to all other MPVs

Zafira: Offset driving and coarse engines.
