Thanks to its clever design, the new Verso-S offers lots of interior space but within the shortest exterior dimensions of any mini-MPV currently on sale in the UK. Fans of the compact iQ will recognise Toyota’s achievements in maximising room inside its smaller cars. Click here for a 360-degree panoramic view inside the new Verso-S.
So it’s small yet spacious. But it’s smart too – it’s also the only model in its class to provide additional one-touch rear seat folding controls in the boot. With the rear seats in place, the loadspace can swallow 336 litres of cargo. And thanks to its multi-position lightweight deckboard, the boot space can be adapted to suit loading requirements.
Moving the deckboard to its lower level – a one-handed task – increases load depth by 120mm and overall capacity by another 57 litres. Furthermore, on T Spirit models, which come with a tyre repair kit, the well usually occupied by the spare wheel is freed up, taking the loadspace up to 429 litres. With the rear seats folded flat, the VDA measurement for load-carrying extends to a maximum 1,388 litres.
Storage flexibility isn’t just limited to the boot area. Around the cabin there are 19 separate storage points, including door pockets, bottle and cupholders, a tray beneath the front passenger seat and a three-level dashboard compartment.
