The Toyota Verso has been awarded the maximum 5 star rating in the 2010 Euro NCAP safety performance test programme. The Toyota Verso was the only car out of several vehicles tested to receive the five star rating under the revised and more demanding 2010 Euro NCAP crash programme.
The new Toyota Verso is more spacious and versatile with particular attention paid to comfort and driving dynamics. All of the seats are now easier to fold and the luggage space is claimed to be increased, while underfloor storage areas are useful for hiding valuables.
With this new model Toyota will introduce two engines initially, a new, 1.8-litre petrol developing 145bhp and a 2.0-litre turbo diesel with 124bhp. Six-speed manual transmissions are standard, with the option of a Multidrive S CVT transmission with the petrol engine.
Other models in the Toyota range to achieve the maximum five star rating include the Toyota iQ, the Avensis, and the Toyota Prius.
