Toyota Proace Verso (2016–)
New Toyota Proace Verso unveiled at Geneva Motor Show
Building on customer needs, the range includes a comprehensive selection of people carrier models. Available in three grades, Proace Verso offers customers a choice of three body lengths across the entire model range, from the Compact to the VIP version.
There are three body sizes – Compact, Medium and Long. At 4.6 metres long and with a 2.9 metre wheelbase, the Compact version offers a remarkable size/roominess ratio. Despite still offering a nine-seat cabin capacity, its turning circle of only 11.3 metres makes it easy to manoeuvre and park in built-up areas. The Medium version is 4.9 metres long with a 3.2 metre wheelbase. The Long version has the same 3.2 metre wheelbase but features an extended rear overhang for greater luggage capacity, increasing overall length to 5.3 metres. Benefitting from practical, left and right-hand side sliding rear doors and a top-hinged tailgate, all mode variants are 2.2 metres wide and 1.9 metres high.
Family grade models may be identified by coloured bumpers, a chrome trim surround to the lower front grille, fog lamps and separate-opening tailgate glass fitted as standard. The new Proace Verso comes with a choice of wheels includes 16” or 17” steel full-wheel covers and 17” alloys, depending on the choice of grade.
The dashboard design features clear, analogue dial instrumentation and ergonomic switchgear. Boasting excellent all-round visibility, the SUV-like driving position features a short-throw gear lever mounted close to the steering wheel. Three interior grades build on the carpet flooring and durable seat fabric of the entry level, with high quality inserts, metallic trim, premium upholstery and, on top-of-the-range models, a centre console-mounted, full-colour, multimedia touch screen.
The Proace Verso provides customers a choice of three grades – Shuttle, Family and VIP. Shuttle and Family grades are available in either Compact, Medium or Long body styles, and VIP grade in Medium and Long bodied variants.
Targeting the self-employed owner for either family or commercial use, with low running costs, the Shuttle grade features a carpeted floor and higher quality fabric upholstery. It is available with a choice of eight or nine-seat configurations.
Proace Verso is available with a range of five powertrains featuring 1.6 and 2.0-litre diesel engines offering a choice of power outputs and transmissions.
